Telemetry range using tablet

Hi all,

I only have a limited range using my 3DR telemetry kit with an android tablet. I think it is a problem of power supply since the LED light on the tablet side is very weak. Can anyone recommend a solution? I am thinking of a battery powered hub or something.

Thanks in advance,

A battery powered hub would definitely be a viable solution to your power problem.
I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and I have not had a problem using Andropilot with the 3DR 915MHz telemetry. The Tab 2 seems to have a very robust battery.

I noticed when my RFD900 power is set to max it gets warm but the same radio connected to my tablet does not get warm at all. I can only assume it isn’t being fed enough from the tablet. I will be using one of these … 1439.l2649 It provides 3 amps, and a separate lipo to power it from now on.
