Similar is the case with regard to the modularity of the antennae.
The DJI Cendence remote control has the option of selectable dual frequencies and offers a range of a whopping 4.3 miles. You can boost this control range with the help of the signal booster but 4.3 miles is more than enough since you should remember to abide by the line of sight legal flight rule stipulated by FAA.
