So which brand/model is the best range extender for the Spark remote?
I got this one used it today and it was fantastic absolutely brilliant best purchase I've bought for the spark.
Hensych Aluminum Remote Controller Antenna Signal Booster Range Extender for DJI MAVIC PRO / DJI SPARK/DJI MAVIC AIR https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0724ZLZKZ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_La-ZAbPZAX411
I use one that is similar and it works well. This guy got out 10k ft I was.able to get out to 8k in high Wi-Fi area.
I have the Amazon one. Concerned that it does not allow antenna to be at right angle.
They let you move the antennas the same. But these are directional anyway you have to have them pointing straight at the drone anyway if you move or turn a little you end up losing signal.
I tried a similar 3D printed model
No difference in sub-urban area
5.8 w/o OTG - FCC
1400mt with and without this type of extender.
Also the quality of the signal during the flight is about the same
My next step will be RP-SMA mod with hi-gain omni antenna
It has been advised to purchase the 4 hole version that allows the antenna tips to protrude through the top. This type allows for the extender to be positioned in a way to be aligned with the antenna's "sweet spot". I thought I would pass that along for what it is worth.
I find when I turn the spark to face myself on the way back every time it always loses signal I think the WiFi antennas are on the back of the spark somewhere.
I have the Titan Control, I like it because I can use the same antenna with Spark, Mavic Air or Mavic it goes as far as I need it to, I like the quick snap on system they use.
Yes, this is something I noticed also on a far away flight. Reception was good until I turned the camera side around to face towards me.
I wasn't using a range extender, but I was as about as far out as I've ever gone.
