If you read the comments, I posted links to get this stuff from Amazon. Two days with Prime.

What is the difference between the boxed antenna and 2 antennas Mike is using?
Thanks

Mike,

Thanks for video on how to make this mod.

I'm looking forward to your test flights and how the mod improves reception,

P.S. I'm not sure it was me not paying enough attention but I didn't see the part in the video where you attached the "new" antenna leads. ;)

It is discussed in comments below the video.

The box is directional with 15dBi and the separate ants are Omni directional with 3dBi. The powered version has 36dBi of boost but would again be directional.

Im not a big fan of the expensive amplified antennas, Too much setup etc. I do ok with just a regular panel. Im not sure how these antennas will work but will try as soon as skydio figures out what they are doing with my drone since it crashed on RTH...Not related to the mod...separate issue.

Just a follow up video from Mike regarding this Mod.
I think Skydio realizes that its an S2 antenna problem and not a controller antenna problem.

Could be why they were recently reported to be looking for an antenna design engineer.
