    DJI is suppose to be a awesome company. But there support of their product is horrible. They do not stand behind their product that they are selling in the US and they are based in China. They emailed me and claim they cannot make a decision on their product that they are selling. They have to go by whatever China tells them. This is unbelievable. These props might be good, but overall they Do Not stand behind what the specs say. Their brag about the Return Home feature and it does not work. I thought and search this product. I will not support anything they have and what they sell. They have to prove to me that they stand behind their product. Made in USA stands behind their product. Best Buy should stop selling this product in my opinion. Also very very bad customer support. Never seen anything like it. They just are all about money.

    Must have for long distance flying

    Bought a Phantom 4 because of "3 mile range". When I would fly past one mile I would get signal drop. With the reflectors on I can get to three miles with no signal drop. Keep in mind you have to have line of sight, so if you are three miles away be mindful of trees. Also, the reflectors reflect the signal in front of you, so if you fly behind the remote you will get signal loss at very short distances. I have found that I only use the reflectors if I am doing a long distance flight further than one mile. When/if you are flying out to three miles, be mindful of headwind/tailwind. You don't want to be out that far and find out it's going to take 10 minutes to get back when it took 7 minutes to get there and you only have 7 minutes of battery left. You can see in picture distance is over 14,500 feet with 4/5 bars of signal strength.

    Bought these just to find out if they were any good.. Opened the box and put them on the Phantom Pro 4 antennas. They fit loose and flopped around.. Only had one notch cut out on each reflector to slide over the antennas. Two cut outs, 1 on bottom and 1 on top would have been better. No documentation stating material so could be copper or aluminum foil, don't know which, {copper would be better}. Foil had bubbles in it instead of being flat an smooth. I didn't even bother testing them as I was very unhappy with the quality.. Some people state they work and they may but I would suggest passing on this item and paying extra for a better quality unit.

    Ive seen other range boosters. I thought I would save a couple bucks and get these. I didn't like the fact that only the bottom was attached to the antenna. The tops liked to cross over themselves. The elastic band... I guess was suppose to keep them from flopping around. If you really think about it you don't need range boosters for a Phantom 4 Pro. It has a HUGE range with out them. Plus were suppose to keep our drones within line of sight at any rate. I returned mine. Really dont need them.

    First, I made my own windsurfer to improve range and signal on my Phantom 3 standard. It was very good. Then I bought these range boosters which also worked as well but looked better than the hand made one I had (they did not work BETTER, only LOOKED better). The metal foil was lifting off of the plastic and so I had to re-glue it. This wasn't a problem but it still needed to be done. Signal was definitely better but one has to then be careful to orient the radio controller so that it points toward the aircraft. Small price to pay for the improved signal.

    While these are not expensive they are essentially a piece of plastic with tin foil on them. After multiple tests my range did not change at all in a perfectly clear and unobstructed area. The way these work is they divert the signal from a 360 radius to a 180 degree range. There are much better (yet more expensive) options on the market. These are just a mo ey grab for new pilots.

    simple product. you get a decent range out of it. just a little cumbersome while on the antenna. need clear sight between drone and controller. also need to make sure you have the best radio channels available. any interference may not be because of the reception of controller to drone but from other people using that radio frequency channel.

    Tested it today on my phantom 4. I knew exactly where I would lose connection from previous flights. It went well beyond and it improved my video from cutting out significantly. I almost didn't get it because of people saying they don't work. It definitely improves range. Worth the money! It's does reduce how far you can tilt your screen but not too bad.
