Customer Reviews

"I have been using the SkyBoost2.4 and it's absolutely blowing my mind, very minimal glitches and I am consistently achieving a distance of 2 km easy along flat planes here in Australia. great stuff." - by Ashwin K., Australia

"the signal remained strong even when the bebop 2 was about a kilometer away from me.... this is certainly quite a functional gadget. beats carrying a range extender and then worrying about how to power it up" - by EK, Philippines

"very clear view of flight in my iPad compared always without the SkyBoost." - by Angelos A., Greece

"you do get more range, and the video streaming doesn't go fuzzy till it's a fair way from you. I was in a big open area and I flew it 1.5km away and the screen just started to go fuzzy then, without the SkyBoost it would have been around 800m to 1km." - by James M., Australia

"I was able to go up to 1.7km and back. Max altitude was 120m. Signal was only one LED strong but the video feedback was still smooth up to the 1.7km limit which is very nice. Today, I tested a 2.7km one way ***** using flight plan (with someone at the other end to receive the drone). I had clear video feedback up to 2.4km and then it stops abruptly. Flight altitude was 150m. There was a wide stretch of forest between me and the drone (like from 1km to 1.5km) the rest was open field. There was power lines just behind me. If you want my opinion I think this is quite good! Overall I am very happy with the device." - by Sasounet, Canada

"SkyBoost does improve the quality of the video stream and light distance" - by Fernando D., Portugal --> (Youtube test result 1) / (Youtube test result 2)

"I am very happy with the extra range. good job. There is a definite increase in range. We have a lot of rain forests so any range extension is good." - by BradG, Australia

"Reached 2859 meters before I lost connection. I had almost fluid FPV until I lost connection.Tested in area with low wifi interference." - by Mikael, Denmark --> (Youtube video)

"2.3 km performed with very good video streaming by SkyBoost and Auriga Bebop app." - by Bebop Dome, Italy (Developer of Auriga Bebop http://www.auriga-software.com/) --> (Youtube video)

"I got just over 4km away before I lost signal and had to RTH. Arrived back though with a massive 47% battery left after flying for 8km!! " - by Aled Lintern-Lyes --> (Youtube video)
