Hello I am trying to make a drone by using Arduino as a microcontroller both for remote controller and the drone. And I have thought for using NRF module. But I came to know it only can transmit data to 1000 m maximum but I need the range around 8 km maximum. What can I do for increasing the range of my drone? Or is there some way to increase range of NRF module?
If I search I see plenty of examples of RF with 40 miles, e.g.:
Possibilities to increase the range:
- More powerful transmitter
- External / better antenna(s)
- Better receiver
- Using directional communication (might be hard with a drone which flies/moves)
