Ok, you can put these wires on your PCB antennas and get more length for better antenna placement. But you have to be really good at soldering things really small! Because the solder points on the PCB antenna are very close together. It would be a lot better if FrSky sold long-lead PCB antennas to replace the existing ones! What this wire gives you that you cannot really do yourself is the snap-on connector that goes inside the receiver. I don't know if the metal tube is a better propagator than the PCB, my guess is it isn't, but if you gain better placement using these, you might still be better off.
The X6R receiver pictures what looks like two of these, but they aren't mentioned in the manual (acquired elsewhere). The X8R is not pictured with them, but apparently includes the "PCB amplified" tips.
Are these what comes with the X6R? Are they shorter, or is the picture (of the 6XR) misleading?
No, first this is 60cm antenna... second this is 'standard' 2.4ghz antenna design...
x8r and x6r use something called PCB antenna... with images found on google it looks like PCB variant of dipole antenna
When I look at the picture of the X6R on this site, the thing I see to the right of the receiver appears to be two antenna wires about 15CM long, with short white leads extending out one end, and some shiny gold colored termination at the other. WHAT DO YOU SEE? I assume, in keeping with the space saving mission of this receiver over the X8R, it comes with a second set of antenna leads in addition to the PCB "dongle" leads. I was just wondering why the X8R didn't come with these, and why you cannot get longer leads on the PCB antennas. I'd like a little more length, because I cannot put the receiver where I'd like to. My reference to this antenna was that, and wondering what the termination used inside the X6R is (different that this one).
Do not have X6R but d4rii and v8 I have both has the same tiny uhv connector as this antenna have.
Besides this 60cm antenna, there is 40cm one (PRODUCT ID: FRANT40 ) and 15cm one (PRODUCT ID: FRANT15) looks pretty same as on x6r... all this three are interchangable ...all are 50ohm for 2.4GHz and have the same antennna connector
If you are thinking about antenna mod then this must not be problem. At least less problems then with this antenna... BY-2400-06-09 has cable with standard SMA connector which can be used to connect most modiles with detachable antennas directly or with apropriete adapter (sma to rpsma)... Unlike this one which has micro connector... You may also use PRODUCT ID: BY-2400-05-10 ... but depending on module connector it may also require to use adapter.
I use the Orange RC module which has an antenna sticking out from the back. It seems quite vulnerable and it stops the radio from lying down on it's back. Someone has suggested using a different antenna and routing it through the back of the module, into the body of the radio and up into the space inside the handle. For this I need a compatible antenna to replace the stock antenna.
In this case I'd suggest to remount module stock connector from module body to tx body and connect it with cable... you can use this antenna as cable source but it's not a best choice for TX because it's very thin and thus has higher signal losses then thicker cables... I'd prefer RG58 (50ohm 5mm outer dia)
search e ba y for "cable SMA male plug right angle to SMA female jack bulkhead RG316 6" pigtail"
this is good 6 inch extension for antenna cable . Just check module connector match your tx connector
There are 2 similar looking types RPSMA and SMA which differs in pin or socket in central part.. as I can see on photos orange module module male connector has socket in center (SMA) ... this cable has the same connector...but check on your module to be sure
