Xiaomi Range Extender 2 has a longer range and is cheaper than the Meross.

i got it! plug n play with my ipad.

plugged it into my power brick, ipad settings wifi, saw wifi+ and connected to it. opened my browser typed in wifiplus.cn webpage said scanning and i did not see the tello! next, i powered on the tello waited a few then at bottom of webpage hit the rescan button a couple f times and now saw tello. clicked on that, got some type of message, went back to ipad settings and saw that the device created a network with tello name plus something appended, connected to that with my ipad. launched the tello app and took off!

i had full bars in the livingroom and then flew into the kitchen and back into the living room via anther hallway. full bars throughout. was about max distance of 30ft away.

will test outdoors this weekend weather permitting.

in house there was some stuttering on the video feed which i set to 1mbps. also low light warnings so very blocky and noisy. but not a lot of stuttering. my guess is the more noise in the feed the worse it will be. so excted for a normal outdoor test!

Nice to know about this option.

Just waiting for your report on outdoor performance before I press the BUY button.

so last night i searched youtube for wifi+ range extender and found two or three videos but they were with a parrot drone. one was on a beach and he flew out over the bay 1.4km. the other was at a farmish rural area and he got 150ish meters. another was a snow covered rural area and he was 1.5km

EDIT:

Here are some links

Out over the bay:

Rural farm like area:

Rural area snow:

There was one more where the guy almost hits some power lines

Anyway, given the circumstances, rural open range type areas, the one i trust the most is the 2nd video i linked to since it seems like there's more stuff going on around him, more popluated area. the over the bay one, no interference direct line of site, the snow one is also low populated area so who knows.

But in your opinion is that repeater worth paying twice the price of the Xiaomi one?

well, my biggest concern was having to install an app to work with the extenders out there. i found the wifi+ one and only browser connecting needed. that's not to say it's 100% secure, there could still be crap on the mobo that scans and captures wifi signals, locations, or plant spyware on the device that connects to it. but who knows. plus others have been complaining about difficulty connecting/extending with other brands. also i figured i'd throw out an alternative and report to people that yes it works and how well. i'll tell you this though, it sure is **** easy to setup!

and like i said with those youtube vids not sure i'm going to get nearly a mile! but if it can help the connection in a populated area and i can reliably get 300ft out of it, fly around the house for example, then great!

i've seen people on youtube with tripods they put this or other extenders and power packs on. i hav ea 3d printer so i might just print up a little bracket and set it up on a tripod and stand near it. it's probably better to get it up off the ground.
