I finally got a chance to read all the posts on this topic at the DJI forum.I‘m very curious to read your report...
I have a feeling that all the antenna does is activated the 720p30 option which then gives further distance???Don't make no sense to me??????? DJI says it's only used for racing drones. I'll give it a try once this snow storms stops!!!!!
I just got a response from DJI, they said the cylindrical antenna will not work on the RE Goggles. Use the Pagoda antenna. Sending them back to Amazon.Now that I received them the fitting on them are a lot smaller then the Pagoda antenna???? Is their a fitting that will work on the RE goggles???? Thanks for any help.

It’s good you tried it and it worked. I don’t think it’s a complete solution but maybe DJI has a better fix soon.Hello Folk.
Been raining here so haven't been out till now. 26 Nov.
I put on the pagoda antenna on my RE Goggles not expecting it to work but voila!! .
Perfect video till over 400ft altitude. No blockyness. no greyscale.
R/C rock solid all the way no disconnection problems. So went out to a couple of kilometres no problems. Flew with gimbal head tracking.
I know it is not supposed to work in theory but it works in practice. Figure out the theory later.
Many thanks for your helpful suggestions
Not sure that this is the real reason. Based on my tests and observed behavior it seems more like a fundamental control protocol issue. For example, if there are no goggles and all is set to Automatic the GO 4 app is in charge to manage channel and frequency changes communicating to the M2 via RC to switch. The M2 behaves in a subordinate mode. When you add the Goggles, there is a separate connection between the M2 and the goggles. The firmware in the goggles essentially behaves much like the GO 4 app in the it wants to communicate to the M2 to switch channel/frequency if needed. The two simply collide and neither will end up knowing what the frequency should be - hence complete and abrupt loss of connection. DJI has to change/add handshake options to force the goggles to take a subordinate role when an RC is connected as well.the reason of poor range is probably in HW difference, googles Re is Occusync1 and M2 is occu2, there is some backward compatibility and M2 switches to Occu1 mode when goggles is connected but with some performance loss..
