I pulled the trigger today on the Argtek antenna's. I am just looking to get the strongest communication possible within our limited 600m fence. Can someone else report on how well/not well these work?

Whoa! Sneaky height limiter override there ;)

I saw the range extenders on EBay and was tempted - sales pitch was an increase of 2.5-3x range, but it looked to me like the twin pads would be in the way of the phone holder?? Also wasn't keen on messing with the Xiro Range Extender wiring, so currently erring on the side of caution and waiting for now...

I can recommend the Argtek range extenders, really easy to install. as for extending the range of the Xiro. "IT DOESNT" what they do improve the video feed dramatically to phone or tablet. As I was only getting about 300 meters before video would drop out. I can get the full 600m, but the Xiro is Geo-fenced in the fact that it will not go beyond 600m.
I think 600m is enough to fly.

I usually get average FPV most flights at around 300m so just bought these extender extenders - http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/ARGtek-XIRO- ... SwzJ5Xdxhk will report back.
Did anyone work out if the old version of the app allows you to edit the 600m range limit?

I personally have found no way to change the 600m limit in any version. I also have the Argtek setup and get good video and signal out to 600m.

Hi There Guy's ,

I tried several times to go beyond he 120 meters and it went fine until ..... you want to make picture or movie .
My experience in that is bad transmission and loss of connection it came in my case lucky me alright but is was sure a bit scared because it's a hell of a drop from 360 meters.
In short i'm done with experiments and i;m pleased to have a stable platform with i can trust.

Not sure how, but I get 1600 - 1700 meters out on every flight with my Xplorer G. Right now all I have is the basic WiFi extender mounted to the remote. Today, I just purchased the BlueProton XIRO Xplorer WiFi Range Extender 8dBi Panel Antenna Kit by ARGtek. I'll post back after I run a test to see it does for overall video and flight transmission performance. Here is a screen shot of a flight I had last night that went out to 5339 ft, roughly 1628 meters at 350 ft altitude.
