COMFAST CF-WR371AC 5G WiFi Repeater for Long Range Drone Flight

0 517



Can this inexpensive 5G WiFi repeater improve long distance FPV flight (similar to the Mi 2 repeater)? Let’s find out. Available from aliexpress here https://goo.gl/jUCVKb

Pros
– It’s cheap.
– An actual portable 802.11ac WiFi repeater. These are somewhat hard to find.
– Includes dual antennas with automatic antenna switching for best reception.
– Easy to setup using chrome browser.

Cons
– Does not seem to have signal amplification capability. Only achieved a slight range increase (about 50 meters) by placing the repeater down the intended direction of flight. But range increase provided by the switching antennas was minimal.
