UPDATE (June 2017): Added STL file to print two separate antenna boosters.

Using this antenna booster you will extend the maximum range of the Remote Controller of your DJI Phantom 4 / Phantom 3 or Inspire 1 up to 2-3 times!
All you have to do after 3D printing this booster is to cover the front side of the two reflectors with aluminum or copper adhesive foil.
Thanks to the optimized shape of the reflectors, the electromagnetic waves are focused just along the axis of the antennas.

If you own a Phantom 3 Standard or a Phantom 2, please see the following page:

You can usually get excellent results with the booster covered with aluminium foil, anyway my boosters with copper coating will allow you to reach more distant targets, moreover it can give better results expecially when you pilot your drone in areas with sparse trees and medium size obstacles. In any case, you will be greatly impressed by the improvements that this Range Booster will give to your flights with DJI Phantom or Inspire drones.

Great item, can you possibly edit it for the Mavic Pro?

Hello Mark, I don't own a Mavic Pro, but if you send me a sketch with the very precise dimensions of the antennas, I may try to design it (watch this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXwUBZfO7zg&t=64s to understand the exact point where you must measure the dimensions of the antenna). Also, try to figure out the optimal dimensions that this new range booster should have to perfectly fit the remote controller of the Mavik Pro.

Is there a way you could split it vertically up the middle. making one for each antenna? I'm using the m3d and with the range boosters attached in the middle its too wide for my print bed. I tried splitting in meshmixer with no luck lol

Hi Rob, I have just added the STL file to print two separate antenna boosters. I hope you like it ;-)

I flew over 4.5 km away in the woods today and back - so over 9km total with a Phantom 3 Pro and this antenna. I have been using this over a year now, on an Inspire 1 , Phantom 3 Pro and soon a Phantom 4 Pro. Incredible design, saves so much money from buying from FPVLR or DPS mods.

Highly recommended, incredible design. Great Work! Thanks for sharing with the community.

Hi thanks for sharing this , I am half way though a print on it , as I am new to 3D printers
can you tell me how this should be laid on the table , I placed it standing up with the
base being the bottom plate that slips over the antennae , I used simplify3D to slice and chose
supports , but the way I have it placed it seems to be using a lot of support columns much
more than I would think was needed , seems a lot of wasted filament and printing time added
with all the supports , over 9 hours estimated print , is this the expected print time for this
model / thank you for any help or tips

Hi William, the printing process of this object requires the use of support structures, so it is normal that there will be a lot of wasted filament to remove at the end. Anyway try to rotate the booster on its short side and let the software generate the supports, this way it should be required less material to make needed supports. Let me know if it helps ;-)

I get SO much noise with my Phantom 3 4K, 1 frame every 3-5 seconds (a lot of wifi + concrete buildings+++)
Currently printing this to see if it helps, copper foil on the way.

Hello Nader, thank you for your comment, here any feedback is welcome!
This antenna booster has been tested and improved over time and now it ensures a very large communication distance between the remote controller and the aircraft.
The best way to test the practical aspects is to print and try it on the field, just like I and many friends of mine have done ;-)


Can u design a correct one please

i couldn't get my copper foil as smooth as the picture. it has some wrinkles. is this okay? will it hurt to have some wrinkles?

I went out 8000 feet with this, crystal clear reception. Will try more another time. Has anyone figured out the max distance?


Thanks for that. i cut for 1 part, and i want to use it on Phantom 2, but the Hole is to Narrow for the phantom 2 antenna.
How can i edit the Hole to fit it ?

Thanks for your Advice.


Hi yanir, I wrote you a message.

How much time to print this?

I've made a small change to the design so you don't have to print supports. It is now two parts and you glue the top part to the base.

I just finished my first windsurfer reflector but I'm not sure which type of aluminum tape to buy? I see several types on Amazon's site. Can you recommend which one I should get?

Hi robo3dr1, you can use this product available on Amazon:


It is a very good quality aluminum foil, in any case perhaps you don't need 50 meters of this tape.
Since I have a whole reel of this product, I could sell you some adhesive strip for your Range Booster (1 EUR each + shipping).
Send me a message if you are interested ;-)

I cut it into half so no need to print tons of support
But U need to glue the 2 pieces together with CA Gel


Phantom 3 Inspire DJI Antenna Signal Booster Cut in half no support needed

Hi airforce, you can't use twice the same half to make my Range Booster, because the top and bottom holes have different sizes...
Anyway, printing with "light support" enabled on my Zortrax M200 requires only 33 grams of extra filament...

Also how the hell are supposed to print these lol! I took it into the Makerbot software because I have a Makerbot 5th gen and there would be SOO many supports. If you could give some tips on how to print them or if you just have to have TONS of supports that would be great!

Hi JdogAwesome, as i said in the instructions, this object requires support during 3D printing process. I have successfully printed it with my Zortrax M200 and Z-ABS filament, and at the end of the print it was not too difficult to remove the support structures. I know that support structures are a waste of filament, but this is the price to pay if you wish to make this accessory by your own...

Ok thanks for the quick response and I may try and print it myself!
