Boosting your range

The best signal booster is a high gain antenna.

To double the range you need 4 times the transmitter power. That much power causes all kinds if problems especially with small quads. So if you are running 600mw you will need 2.4 watt for twice the range and 9.6 watt to get 4 times the range. Both are more than the legal power for that band. Maximum transmitter output power, fed into the antenna, is 30 dBm (1 watt). http://www.afar.net/tutorials/fcc-rules/

An additional 6 db antenna gain will also get you double the range. 12 db will get you 4 times the range. So you see that's a much better solution and you don't have all the headaches of using a high powered transmitter.
