    Help! Clover Leaf vs. Skew-Planar vs. Helical antennas

    I've heard of Clover Leaf, Skew-Planar, and Helical antennas. Are all of these the same and work together or are they all different? I want to get into FPV, but it's stuff like this that is prohibiting me. Thanks.

    FPV antenna tracking under 100$ (Old thread, plan on making a new one)

    So for the last year I have been very interested in long range fpv and I am looking into making a ground-station. Previously I have been using a 1.2ghz system that you can pick up on ebay for about 60$, I'll have a link somewhere in here. I plan on using a 1.2ghz system again and there are two...

    X8R Antenna Modification Help

    I recently built the UAVFutures $99 dollar quad. I am using an X8R receiver, but it is annoying that the antennas don't fit through any of the small holes on the frame. There is a black rectangle on the tip of each antenna, but I don't know what they are. Could I desolder them so I have a more...

    So I have been using the Red fatshark 5,8GHz cloverleaf antenna's and they used to stick out the back of the QAV250 and simply bent up, however I have already broken the antenna mounts of 3 video transmitters. Next was purchasing the right angle adapters for the antennas and then feeding it...

    First FPV Flight

    Hello all, I successfully completed my first FPV flight today and quickly proceeded to do two more. I did it with the complete Quanum FPV bundle from HobbyKing on my scratch built 650mm quad with DJI Naza-m lite running v2 software. It was incredibly smooth and more fun than I expected, just...

    New FPV antenna idea?

    Firstly, i have not tried any of these ideas, nor am i an elite FPV pilot, however i was thinking about this idea, and... CP cloverleaf antennas work best when they are parallel. If the antennas become out of phase, the signal strength massively drops. This effect is even more prominent in...

    3 Leaf TX and 4 Leaf RX Antennas - Why?

    Is there a simple explanation of why there should be 3 leaves on a TX and 4 leaves on a RX antenna? I'm referring to 5.8/1.2 FPV antennas. What happens if you run 4 leaves on a TX or 3 leaves on a RX? I'd guess some range reduction but I'm not sure why.

    Spray Painting Antennas

    Would there be any negative affects of spray painting an antenna like these black so it better matches the miniquad? I'm thinking about some of the spray paint designed for plastic.

    I'm new to the forums and would like to get into FPV I saw a kit on ready-made RC that has everything you need to get into FPV you have several options on what type of antenna you can get in I was wondering which RX antennas would be compatible with which TX antennas. The default antenna for the...

    How to replace a broken receiver antenna wire?

    I have completely snapped off (and lost) one of the receiver antennas from my FrSky X8R receiver. How would I go about replacing the wire? I know this particular model has plastic things on the ends of the antennae (which get in the way and help to snap off the wire in case of a crash...

    Turnigy 9x Broken Antenna

    I went out flying today and ended up somehow crashing and snapping the antenna wire in half on my Turnigy 9x receiver. Is it possible to fix this? I have read that the length of the antenna is incredibly important so if it is fixable, how do i do it and what exact length do i need to have the...

    Which TX Antenna do I use for a 33Km space flight?

    What TX Antenna do I use for a 33Km space flight? Hello FT forums. I am sending a Raspberry Pi 33Km into the atmosphere in a custom 3D printed space probe. I would like a live video link that has an effective range of 33Km, as the probe will start it decent at 33Km and the video link need not...

    Robot communications

    I know this may not be the right place for it but I'm building a fully autonomous robot that will traverse through any building and map out a blueprint of what's in there. (Original idea was three quad copters, but seemed a little dangerous with all those props flying around people :) ) I'm...

    What's your favorite RX antenna?

    I'm using a quarter wave lambda antenna on my 900Mhz TX and the junky stock dipole antenna on the RX. I'm looking into different types of antennas for receivers, so I figured I'd ask: What's your favorite type? Looking for good signal strength, directional antennas are okay too. I fly mostly in...
