Extend range with Wifi Repeater ??

Hello Guys I am searching for some solutions to increase the range of the drone. Can we connect 5G wifi repeater and extend the range by 5KM ??
 
Generally you don't need any extender, just use modded app from Freeflight 6 mod app theme with FCC enabled and try then. I have 4 km flight on 2.4 GHz, it's close to the maximum distance from where you'll have enought battery to return home, with 5 km it could handle only in ideal conditions, better not to risk if not needed. But if it's one-way-flight with somebody waited for drone on that side, up to 8 km flight is ok. Didn't tried with 5.8 GHz, but by idea it should be less.

I’d do as Ratmir has suggested and install the modded app that will provide the FCC spec’d WiFi connection. A WiFi repeater works well with the Tello but this is because the Tello uses the inefficient WiFi connection of a mobile device. The Anafi controller uses an antenna that is significantly more efficient than any mobile device.

Flying beyond VLOS is a big responsibility, and illegal in most countries. A suitable analogy is anyone can make a car go really fast, all it takes is to leave your foot hard on the accelerator, but it takes skill and experience to do it safely. It’s the same with beyond VLOS, anyone can make their RC toy travel great distances but significantly few can do it safely and repeatably.

Regards

Nidge.

I can't believe this. He went way past the point of no return. If he had lost connection it would have been game over, but he didn't. Where did I put that shoebox. Well done David A S.
 
No matter how far you take it out it's suppose to calculate reuturn power to get back so it doesn't emergency land far out right?

parrotanafifan, in ideal world - yeah, it try best to make possible return to home, but in real world wind speed and other thing could make difference, and even if it will land not far out, like in 200 meters of you somewhere in the forest - it's not the thing you would like too, I think!)

How Much Flight Time Do You Really Get with the Anafi? - here we discuss real flight time you could get, from my experience 13 min is safe one for most of conditions, and 16 min you'll get in best variant. Here I'm speaking about long distant flyes, of course, if you drift somewhere around in 10 meters above ground - you could get 21 minute or even more ;)

Suppose is the operative word here. Many here have found out the hard way that this is not always true! :mad: I will not take mine below 15% if nearby (i.e. LOS) and 25-30% if out a mile or more.I just don't think the Auto return on Low Battery algorithm is that accurate.

But there are many people on youtube in the past that did the range test and returned it just fine.
Here is QC guys check out his signal at 2.3mi, he hovers for almost a minute before even starting the flight as well

True enough, but I'm not that brave. There seems to be a wide variation in the ability to RTH successfully with Low Battery Alert. Too many people have lost their drone in this circumstance for my taste.
 
After 5 years... Is there still anyone who uses successfully the modded app for flying with FCC enabled?

I have just tried to install it again but it doesn't work anymore... after the first screen (where you accept all the terms and condition) it moves on to the "data synchronization" screen, and there it always says "synchronization interrupted. Check you internet connection".
My connection is always working... be it wi-fi or data connection... I've tried again and again several times but it always gives me this error.
My phone is a Samsung S20 plus. I can fly the Anafi with the original app with no problems, but I'd really need FCC again...

If anyone is able to help me... Thank you in advance! :)

If you are looking for a modded app for latest version of FF6 for Android app I have put link below look at post #1. Make sure you search through other users posts in regards on how to install and saving existing OBB file by renaming it and then adding back in with original name as necessary. I have never needed to do this but others have run into sync issues if not done properly. Btw make sure to select correct file off his sever as there a few different version to select from.
Good luck
