Your opinion. I give mine:Dear Tello friends.
Please dont waste your time on this thread if you want wifi+s extender.
Having just read all 14 pages it appears there is no proof any of these devices are better than the Xiaomi WiFi Repeater 2.
Some comments by users believing "double the range" but without any proof whatsoever. Better video but again no proof.
Xiaomi WiFi Repeater 2. Is the goto device. Personally I can get close to 300 meters using mi2 and I will stand corrected if someone can show me 500 meters using other wifi+s usb adapter.
Finally I find it bizarre that these devices are disappearing (wifi+s) I suspect because they are garbage and nobody buys them. Production ceased.
Millions if fliers go for the mi2, proving beyond any doubt its the best all round adapter.
Sorry but a few anecdotal comments on the wifi+s being FAR superior is not proof. Why am I in no rush to go out and buy anything mentioned in this thread? The reason is because they are not far superior. Some people struggle to get it connected (mi2) but once you realise you dont need the xiaomi app to complete the setup and instead simply choose the "name_plus" from your phones wifi available networks then you are good to go without following youtube videos for step by step and failing at the final hurdle. My opinion is that this is the superior device. Works flawless for me and no complaints.The answer has been given a few times but you refuse to understand: the wifi +s is better.
Range is similar so not a reason to buy one or the other. Everything else the Wifi +s is far superior.
WIFI+S Range Extender vs Xiami WIFI Repeater
Last months I have been flying my Tello using Xiaomi WIFI Repeater 2. It's a great piece of hardware that allowed me flying farther and safer.

But recently I have noticed about WIFI+S Range Extender. I bought one of them and gave it a try. I'm pleasantly surprised. It performed very well, better than Xiami. I would like to share my experiences and invite you doing the same.

Firs of all, "WIFI+S Range Extender" is sold under different brands and commercial names, for example "Enyu USB Wi-Fi Range Extender", "KOBWA WIFI Extender", "Pix-Link WIFI Extender", etc.. All of them is the same hardware. You can download a PDF Quick Start Guide from here:
Externally WIFI+S Extender is bigger, heavier and heats up more than Xiaomi Repeater. This makes it more uncomfortable to use, but all these characteristics indicate that it is more powerful.
I tested both into a well know urban environment I use to flight often, under moderate wifi interference. I tried to be fair. Same conditions, same takeoff point, same route, even same WIFI channel (I tested it using Wifi Analyzer app).
Both flights were at Fixed bitrate 1mb/s and 0 iframe interval.
I clearly got double performance from WIFI+S Range Extender than Xiami WIFI Repeater.
Let me show you some numbers:
sinking 90db to 70db

I hope I will perform further tests in the next future
I'll keep you informed
I wrote a manual about proper setup of this device here:
Hello, I'm new to the TelloPilots forum. I have a Mavic Pro 1 and purchased a Tello Boost Combo to have some fun. I've read a lot about extending the Wifi for both better distance and video signal. There is a lot of talk about the WiFi+ and the Xiaomi WiFi Repeater 2. The WiFi+ seems to be...tellopilots.com
Please try it with these steps.
