Cheap Range extender

Hi,

im running a 9xr with 2,4ghz frysky module

im looking for a cheap antenna upgrade to get some more range out my frysky system.

HK sell a 7db antenna (http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s..._Modules_.html)
is this a useable option without buying a wifi booster and what sort of rnage can i expect from it

cheers
Neil

Highly recommend you reconsider trying to get more range from your 2.4. The best solution is to get a long range system like a Dragon Link.
