Last June I received a Titan Command case and a controller mod kit for my Phantom 4 pro v2.

I just have been sidetracked and did not get to use the “amped config” until today.

I got 2.89 miles and back with only two small adjustments of the antenna “pointing”. I’m talking 2 to 3 degrees ....and I never got over 270 ft altitude..... There was a forest line the 2.4 ghz signal punched through.

I have a controller mod kit for the Spark that I hope to do soon.

Interesting setup and tech..
I've been out 2.17 miles myselves, then smart battery told me it's time to rth.
When Spark turned around, I lost connection for a minute.

Good luck with your project!

Mr. Haggi,
My mind is a bit cloudy however I seem to remember a video with telemetry that I want to credit you with.
Over water ?

1.48 miles out from home and back is my best Spark flight.

In my environment trees and sporadic to moderate WiFi interference in the reality. Using google maps to locate elevation friendly paths and WiFi congestion spots does help staying connected.

Hi!
I've always had best connectivity over water surface.
My far far away flight was prob just a lucky one, I've not been able to replicate it. To be honest, these days I try to be inside 1 km/3000 ft radius, which normally provides me with a rock steady connection.
Also because my 4 batteries (3 years old and 100 recharges) has lost a minute of effective flight time.

Here are the video, I'm in the farthest end of the small lake you can spot towards the end of the video.
