Product Description

These Nimbin magic-mushroom antenna are cool !  this listing is for AIRSIDE drone Tx antenna only - combination set - For FPV aerial photography5.8Ghz Ops -  these   3 bladed 5.8Ghz cloverleaf style video Tx antennas give clear video vision (with or without OSD) and good colour with no colour shift inside normal Aerial photography Ops radius of 1050m.     Antenna feature gold plated female connectors and bend-n-stay co-axial cables.  Due to the short wavelength of 5.8Ghz it requires direct LOS - so you cant fly in rain, nor behind buildings etc on 5.8Ghz regardless of what you think you see on youtube.  This ties in with legal requirements to maintain the aircraft in LOS and general comon sense duty of care in any case.  

Whats the difference internally between the Nimbins & the Boofheads ? Boofheads are made with flattened solid copper wires - Nimbins are made with much stronger rounded steel wires - buy one of each and make up your own mind   5.8ghz-fpv-antenna-nimbin-4210.jpg

user note 1 ; CARE : if flying in corrosive salty or humid environments user is advised to coat with clear laquer spray - non conductive acrylic or enamel spray to prevent copper corrosion.
user note 2 : DONT BEND ; The antenna may appear to be slightly out of alignment - leave it alone - it will work fine  - The wires are made from steel - DO NOT try to bend them by hand because you will just end up snapping off the softer solder metal - soldering joints dont bend - they break!   If you do try to muscle these and you break them off - use a temperature control iron set to 340°C  - re-aplly them at the correct angle in the first instance.
user note 3 ; RANGE : Range is dependant on a) direct LOS un-obstructed - b) humidity c)rain d)Tx and Rx frequency accuracy lock e)Transmitter power f)interference devices in proximity to Tx and Rx antenna g) Quality of the Video gear itself h) will not transmit or receive thru a person or a person head H) condition of the solder joint - if damaged or cracked from crash or storage/transport - resolder one side at a time using flux - DONT TRY TO BEND STEEL WIRES!
