$8 Mod to Extend SPEKTRUM DX6 Range

Hey Guys,

If you’re looking for a cheap way to extend your radio range, I just posted this HD antenna mod video:

I used a TP-Link 2.4GHz 8dBi Indoor Omni-directional Antenna for only $7.99.

It was tested and extended the range on my micro quad much farther than my 200mw video transmitter can keep up with.

It’s not the easiest mod but it’s definitely not the hardest either. Make sure you only cut once near the base and not thrice like I did.

I appreciate your thoughts and suggestions for improvement.

Pretty AWESOME! Thanks for exploring that for us all!!! Seems rather simple. I would really only recommend it if u were failsafing often in your flying locations, or flying long range. Doing it to a brand new $200 radio may void any Spektrum/Horizon Hobby warranties lololol!

@DroneH4X It was only a matter of time until somebody did a range extending hack on a Spektrum TX. People have been doing this to their Taranis and Devo radios for ages. Thank you for documenting the hack!

@quadlifepro Happy Cake Day (MMC anniversary)! :cake: :birthday: :tada:
