The receiver is a spektrum 2.4GHz 5 channel receiver which I fly with the Spektrum DX8.

Not sure about the rest. You would have to ask Mheeli in his RCDrone thread.

Is it a 2,4 Ghz receiver you have used?
I working mostly with 35 Mhz transmitter and receiver. Dont know how complicated it would be to change either the Receiver or Controller/Transmitter.
What Controller/Transmitter have you been using?

Should be able to get same range as your DX8 because the wifi is now with the drone all the time.
