For range & battery life improvements, visit us at Maxx UAV - UAV Long Range Solutions

Ok guys, now that some people are finally getting their Mavic's delivered, people are wondering what kind of range this thing has compared to the P4 & P3. We're looking for the longest distance from home, not the total traveled. If you would like to be added, please post the following:

  • Screenshot showing the maximum distance from home, either from the DJI Go App, Litchi, or Healthydrones.
  • Screenshot of you making it back home
  • Please describe the flying environment, such as tree interference, hills, buildings, etc.
  • What type of mods, if any, such as antenna upgrades, battery mods, etc.
  • Tag me in the post so I get a notification. Tagging here is just like Twitter, @JakeMaxxUAV
I will keep this list updated. If I miss your post, please send me a PM.

yeah man , there's more left with that setup... and i think some more weight can be added... have to check with MCG and see how much weight he was carrying on his last test.
I am much more interested in the antenna than the battery mod. I had your DBS panel antenna on my P3 and NEVER lost signal, I loved the extra signal penetration I got thru obstructions like trees and such. When you get this one perfected with a quick release I will be in line with my $$

I am surprised somone hasn't just sent someone to a point 4.3 miles away and flown to that point that way they dont need to worrg about it not making it back .... just a thought.

Hmmm, what would that prove? The whole idea is to get there and back, I am sure it will get out the 4 miles but if you don't have the battery to get back it is a moot point. That 4.3 was over water, you could get the same over flat land, but you still need to get home. I never fly that far out, about a mile max, I am more concerned about signal strength in small valleys and thru trees.

Is it really a prototype? It's a regular ITELITE antenna?


Sent from my iPhone using MavicPilots
I believe it's the DBS02 antenna. Probably calling it a prototype so there's no confusion and making people think they can buy a DBS02 antenna and it'll work. Obviously there will be a new mounting system, but the internal cables are different as well.
