    Just like with my P3P, I'm not looking for long range performance. I'm looking for better signal penetration or stronger signal for reliable controller-to-Mavic connection in areas with lots of interference/obstacles (wifi, trees, houses, power lines, etc., etc.).

    For my P3P, I've used cheap antennas from ebay/amazon to the popular ones from FPVLR and DMS mods.

    For Mavic Pro, FPVLR has: Mavic Pro Antennas Archives - FPVLR
    Has anyone tried these yet? Has DBS Mods released their Mavic version?

    Thanks! Yes, I've seen this already. This morning, I read somewhere in the comments of one of Chuck's videos where he said they'll release their Mavic version sometime in December. Can't wait to see reviews of DBS and FPVLR antennas.

    I'm interested to see what kind of antennas they will be using and whether they can do something more portable (seeing as though that is the main point in the mavic).

    I don't see the need for an after market antenna. My occusync gets good distance, penetrates through trees, and performs way better than my P3 Pro light bridge system. It is so good, that I'm not going to even buy a windsurfer.

    Good for you! In my area with P3P with aftermarket antenna, I can go over 5000ft until my signal starts to drop. Same area with Mavic....less than 1500ft...then I start to drop 2 bars of signal for both RC and Video.

    Everyone's situation/needs are different...so I do see a need for an after market antenna.

    Its a whole different story with the Mavic 's 2.4Ghz comparing with the P3's 5.8

    Why would DJI do that to the Mavic? Seems counterproductive, but I'm ignorant on RC Ghz etc...

    In theory 2.4 would have twice the range of 5.8 while sacrificing half of the data(bandwidth) it can carry

    P3P's are 2.4GHz only!

    This is a very interesting antenna for sure! Weird design that at a glance seems opposite to a panel shape.

    I've seen a tear down of the remote and it's not for the faint of heart.

    It's looks like a ***** to take apart and run the wires!

    i used to use a Yaggi antenna back in the days of my TBS Disco Pro with 2.4ghz analog video, the range and quality was unmatched.

    Has anyone seen a long range antenna install on the RC yet?

    The tear down I saw is going to be tough
