Flysky/Turnigy Fs-i6 Antenna mod

The Fs-i6 has not bad range and signal strength, but I still want to do something with it because I have many antennas which I don't use right now. And in this video I'll so you how I modified the antenna.

This is the first time I have done a video, so sorry for bad quality

Turnigy/Flysky FS-i6 Antenna mod (Extend signal and range) (3 min 39 sec)

Did you do a controlled test, say a low power ground range test, before and after the mod to check how much range improved ?

And as a general point if the 11dBi is to be believed then you now have a highly directional TX antenna, meaning you have to keep it at just the right attitude and position or the range to the RX is probably much worse than with the normal supplied antenna.

Have you done any testing for range?
Can you recommend a GOOD hi-gain antenna?

I have done the mod to my i6, and use it mainly for boats, so a hi-gain would be beneficial to me.
