My antennas are connected under the battery. It's not a difficult job since they use i-pex connectors and just snap on. I had a hard time initially, because I was reluctant to tear into my bird without the knowledge of even having seen it done. Not many mod vids out. It took me a while to get basic knowledge of how drones work. Then, antenna placement was an issue. Holy Stone designed the 720e with very little space anywhere. Be careful if you choose to do it, as I did. Very little wiggle room for error. I have several different antennas to test. I have small clover leaf antennas, but I'm still researching if FPV antennas are compatible for wifi. I don't want to fry the electronics.I'm in the process of doing something similar to your project. Mind a question or two? What are the antennas connected to, ANT 1 & 2 on the mainboard or to the wifi transmitter below the battery compartment? I like the location you chose for the antenna placement, I didn't think of that and may borrow the idea. One thing you might want to consider based upon my initial testing is to switch to a round antenna as opposed to the ones shown in the picture. I used similar antennas originally and the large surface area they present to a cross-wind can be a problem. Your mod looks really nice, well done. I'd love to hear the results of your testing when you get finished.
Sounds like the perfect time to do some looking around inside the drone. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.After mine went upandaway and went into some thickets, I recovered it to find 2 broken arms and one broke motor. Now it is time for a thorough autopsy!
Sorry to hear about that upandaway, I think there are issues with newer Ophelia go apps and the ground positioning sensor. I use an older version of the app, and haven't had a problem since. I always make sure I use a take-off pad, and do a complete check list before taking off. If she goes up 6ft at take off, and is solid still, you should be good to proceed.After mine went upandaway and went into some thickets, I recovered it to find 2 broken arms and one broke motor.

I always do the same. Every issue I've ever had with my 720e occurred as soon as it lifted off, granted that only happened once or twice luckily.If she goes up 6ft at take off, and is solid still, you should be good to proceed.
I still do not understand how Occusync can transmit anywhere near 10km if they are within FCC power limits. RF is RF the last time I checked.so I can enjoy Occusync
Oh no! Sorry to hear that. So did it not return home? How did it crash?Well so much for my mod. Crashed and pinched one of the coax connecting the new antennas and looks like it trashed the transmitter. Managed to get a maximum of 1759 m without FPV before it occurred. Looks like it's time for a Mini 2. LOL
No it wouldn't do anything because the video is being received by the phone's internal antenna.What i was wondering if you put the yagi antenna 5.8 ghz on the antenna stick that does not have a antenna in it on these drones .Would the cell phone Wi Fi being used pick up for a longer range. the cell phone does have 802.11n and the H720E puts out a 5.725-5.850 GHz signal.I guess in simple terms would back and forth signals both take a path threw the yagi antenna stuck over the stick with out the antenna in it.And than go threw the cell phone antenna
