Anybody having any problems with this mod? I know the kit no longer includes a internal cooling fan due to interference. So what keeps the boosters cool? I was told by seller (maker) to turn off boosters when not in use. I personally don’t want to turn boosters on and off every time I want to fly long distance. Does it increase your flying distance or is it the same as stock. How’s the battery consumption.

Hi,battery consumption is minimal,booster is connected directly to the power/board thus small switch so booster wouldnt run when skycontroller is off,
Dont forget,if your booster is off ,your signal going trough dead booster will not be strong as before when you didnt have any booster.....due interferance he got rid of fan and added heat sinks to boosters thus heat problem was solved....What I believe to be 3W boosters are “factory calibrated”(that dude has some connections and some really expansive equipment) down to aprox.1.7W(not gonna find that anywhere) and properly calibrated to give you max .signal strenght.....to get it to work really good you need bebop booster and skycontroller booster,he sells it as a kit......its a difficult installation for someone without any soldering experience,i have lots of experience so installing bebop booster took 1 hour(mostly taking bebop completly appart) and skycontroller took few days because i wanted it done my way......from what i can tell bebop booster helps a lot with interferance and sky booster gives you some serious range(compared to flying without booster).....i flew bebop with different boosters,sc1 with different boosters and sc2 with different booster and i can say mod made by solaris is the best booster mod for bebop out there
Here is pic of my skycontroller,addd voltage meter,extra booster light for power and signal and added led power button for a booster

Thanks for your response Skydreamer.

A buddy of mine purchased the mod kit and said it is great for low flying and crystal clear no lag fpv better than before but distance is the same as stock was able to fly 2.17miles out not the 4K 2.49miles in the countryside away from interference. Still he was very pleased with the mod.

All depends how you hold controller,antenna panel is slightly facing up , lowering it bit down so the panel is 100% vertical will give you more range....taking off from high position is big plus
Here is funny video made by solaris,3.2km

What if you could get unlimited range? Well...limited to a 4G signal that is.

uavpal/beboptwo4g

This is showing the mod on the Parrot Disco but it can also be used for the Bebop 2!


I like the idea of using 4G LTE but I don’t have a 4G LTE unlimited data plan. Also you will lose 4G LTE connection if it’s down.

What happens if the 4G goes down is you return to home and pick up your regular signal when your drone gets close enough to you.

Hi, I bought the booster, I installed the booster correctly on the drone and it worked perfectly, but when I install the booster on SC2 it does not work, I tried the sc2 and when I press the power button the led blinking red for 5 seconds and then the control goes off.

When you press the power button in a normal SC2, the led blinking red for 5 seconds and then the control connect with the drone, but in this case, with the booster installed the SC2 goes off.

In this 5 seconds i think that the SC2 performs checks and then connects with the parrot disco.

I talked to the creator of the booster and asked him, and he told me that this had happened to other people but they had solved it but he did not know how.

Somebody happened this?
