Well I bought a range extender and wasn’t hoping for much of a increase in distance but wow I was impressed they do work I got 8500 ft before I had to come back because of the battery level..
I like to know everybodys experience with these range extenders and what’s the farthest anybody has ever flown.

I've put one on my Christmas wish list mostly due to the testimonials like yours I've seen on the net. One thing I see continually stressed is the need to keep the parabolic antennae pointed at the Spark, particularly as the distance away becomes greater. Turning away due to distraction could cause lost link between controller and drone. Thanks for the feedback.

I can get 5,000 feet which in Europe is amazing under CE rules. Range easier outside CE ie FCC

Without extenders i've done 2450 meters on open water untill signal loss. With extenders 2380 meter in open field, then I Came back because battery was 60% and windy conditions.
Anyway, last week I was looking at flight records of both flights in Airdata .without extenders signal was minimum when spark rth after 2450 m .With extenders at 2380m still 100%. .And Airdata is not optimistic in giving signal strength. So I'm considering doing 2 identic flights, one with and another without RE. And then reading signal report in Airdata.
