The first thing I’d do is find a nice little hill in the countryside, the side of a large lake in the countryside (admittedly, there aren’t many of those - depends where you live), or a beach at the coast … and see what you manage to get.
As you can see from this … no apparent signal loss over 1.2km distance. (My MP is same tech as MPP).
Also - since it seems to have slipped out notice, a belated welcome to GADC Alan / @Aij615.
If you haven’t already, take a look at the Map of Members and you’ll get an idea if there are other members in your neck of the wood.
On the rare occasion that I launch from my back garden, I can only usually go a couple of hundred meters before the interferece kicks in - same reason, large housing estate, more WiFi signals than there is houses
Another option is to try FCC mode (various threads on here about it, try a few searches).
Running an amplified antenna will cut through a lot of that - it’s not a cheap option though.
Welcome to the friendliest and premier club, and font of all knowledge, usually.
Aside from the legal implications of flying beyond vlos. Tut tut.
The range extenders are all well and good, but, and it’s a big but.
It produces a very narrow signal ‘beam’ powerful but narrow. As you get further out it becomes critical that you keep the aerials pointing at the aircraft, a slight deviation of the controller and you lose signal. And if you can’t see it, how can you point at it?
Is it worth the sress and worry of seeing your expensive pride and joy not under your control.
Guys I promise to only use it in open countryside and obey the drone commandments.
I have a Mavic Pro Platinum
iPhone XS Max
Just want to be able to go into FCC mode to test this baby out, it’s like having a brand new top range BMW and I’m covered to 70mph and I’m on the autobahn in Germany, I just wanna stretch her legs a little in the countryside
You Use an App on the phone called “ Floater” it when activated makes your phone think it’s GPS is in America !.
When you then activate the drone you can switch to FCC mode, when you have done that, shut the drone down, turn off Floater, then wallah !, your drone is in FCC.
Hang on! ,why would you want to do that with ocusync?
It will do 4 miles !.
Not even sure the above would work, never tried it only ,on the Air.
