Topic: The Extreme - Marlboro Mclaren Mod for AR Drone 2.0 (26/July/2012)
This mod has improved a lot of hardware and software design errors from Parrot and recommend for professional players.
8. The 500mW (27dbm) TX power signal booster add-ons with 3 heat sinks upgrade for AR Drone 2.0 (the original TX power = 31.6mW (15dbm)). Now capable to reach the range at 600 meters away (1.2km diameter) with connecting to my AP. This is completely improved the WiFi randomly-disconnection issue of the Drone's video while in flying. Enabling a very smooth and steady video link. The Carbon Fibre bottom plate also added.
11. The external 2.4Ghz (2437Mhz center) Cloverleaf AR Antenna for AR Drone 2.0 (Radio signal upgraded from Linear Polarized to Circular Polarized where most used in Military, Aerial and Satellite applications).
12. The 630mW (28dbm) TX power Access Point upgrade mod for the linkage in between the AR Drone 2.0 and the iPhone 4 device. The original TX power of the AR Drone 2.0 is just 31mW (15dbm). With a Circular Polarized antenna attached. Allowing the flight range to be extended up to 600 meters away from the Access Point location (radius). Altitude 300 meters (With Drone Control HD app). This AP requires Power-Over-Ethernet custom made cable - The black one RJ45 to T-Plug (Custom Made, not for sale in anywhere of this planet.). Powered by a 11.1v 3700mAh LiPo battery. Deploying on a portable tripod in the field.
These mods are the only way to get rid of the hardware design error from Parrot.
