if they engineered a tiny usb-c LTE dongle the port on top is in a good spot. signal range and orientation would not be a limiting factor.

Give it up, it will not happen, they will just release new version all together.
Let's hope this time they get it right.

Right, THEY might not do it, but if somehow communication is possible using that port, battery pins, or via physical mod, then we could do it ourselves. I have a feeling that's the only real way.

Wonder what would happen if you put a linux compatible wifi USB dongle on that port. We probably would never have access to the systems that would allow modifying connectivity, but sometimes you can get lucky.

Antenna mod is most likely.

I have no hopes of them doing anything to improve range with this model. Just spitballing. If the X2 controller is compatible and has better range I’d give it a go.


The Mini 2 can reach 11,000 meters.
That’s just amazing

My gut leans towards no drone manufacturer building extra stuff into the batteries for no reason.

Has anyone ever done a teardown of this thing?
