    Cool, aside from disconnecting the down sensor, did you do anything else? I have the same mod, just a different battery, but didn't see a massive improvement in flying time (was only a hover test in the garden though).

    Yeah I did this but the instructions I followed wasn't great (not sure about you but my mod just arrived in a box without instructions).

    Do you have a link for the instructions you followed? Just so I can make sure I did it right. Thanks.

    Edit: don't worry, I found a different video, gonna follow that instruction.

    Can't be the stock antenna to reach 5k! Must be that thing that requires you to dismantle the RC.

    It depends where you fly, I got 3km with stock antenna with reflector once, it depends which direction I fly in from my flying field, if I go South I can go 3-4x as far as I can if I fly East and there is very little difference in what is there, just South is down a slight hill, where-as East is flat but has a massive oak tree in the way.

    I've also been doing distance testing now I have SMA connectors on my remote, and I nearly pissed myself laughing last night when the drone went 1.4km with £3 cloverleaf antennas on the remote but barely got 1.1km with all the dedicated 'range extending' equipment.

    Fifteen with twenty minutes flight. Depends on air and flight profile.

    Interesting.

    Looks like the battery blocks the bottom sensors.

    How do you overcome the Visual Positioning System / infrared sensors?

    Thanks for sharing.

    The cable of sensors is out from inside the board
