Hey there,

Got an email this morning and it seems banggood is selling circularly polarized antennas for 5.8 GHz gear, they have 4 lobes and three lobes and a choice of different connectors on them. Here they are for your information. Use coupon bggood to get some cents off the 4 lobe one.

What do you guys think? is it a ripoff? is it crap? anyone willing to test a pair?

Very cheap. But I'd be wanting to know what the blobby stuff is. How's your soldering going Andre? Mine's not brilliant, but I didn't have much trouble making my own antennas out of the stock dipoles.

First - I'm (will be) on a different frequency than 5.8 - and I have a nice soldering gun so I'll break that out and make a nice pair of antennas for my future FPV system. I can't wait to order but the guys at sierrarc.com which I am going to buy from (don't question this please) have a hard time with stock numbers... Can't get all in stock at one time. On Monday I'll have $200 again to order if all is in stock.
