You'll need to open the case and do a little surgery on the internal rf board to use this 5db antenna. It involves soldering an ipx/u.fl connector to the board, and using an ipx/u.fl pigtail terminating in a rp-sma bulkhead-type. This 5db antenna screws into the rp-sma. FOUR things you'll need: 1) ipx/u.fl pcb mount (cheap on ebay)* 2) ipx/u.fl to rp-sma pigtail (at least 6cm)* 3) the antenna* 4) the stones to do the surgery and risk your taranis.
Yep, the description is a bit misleading, this will work with the DJT module just fine. Keep in mind that the higher gain will make this a bit more 'directional' than the stock antenna i.e. the orientation between rx/tx antenna will be more critical.
I have a Turnigy 9XR that I installed the FrSky DIY kit. The antenna that came with it is broken and needs to be replaced. Does anyone know if this one fits the antenna opening on the transmitter case? The antenna that came with the DIY module is about 9.8mm dia at the base. The antenna opening in the case is 10mm. It just fits. What is the diameter of this antenna at the base? Is it larger than 10mm? Is there a way to modify the case for this one to fit?
Do you have the 9X or the 9XR?
I have the FlySky FS-TH9X (Same transmitter as the Turnigy 9X with different firmware) and my stock FrSky antenna, as you said, "just fits in" through the old antenna hole at the top. The "stock" antenna is the FrSky 2db antenna that is available from HK (PRODUCT ID: FR2DBANT). I also have this antenna (5db gain) and the outside of the base is the same size as the outside of the old antenna port on top of my transmitter...Hope this helps
Yard Dart this antenna does not fit directly into 9xr with Frsky module.
It is 13mm in diameter. You need PRODUCT ID: FR90DEGA to make it work or if you can somehow reduce the diameter, witch is what I might try.

I bought this antenna and tested in the FrSky diy module, under ‘Range Check’ mode, I found that using this antenna the range is shorter than the original (2db) antenna, the original (2db) antenna the range is approx. 130m while this antenna the range is approx. 100m, I don’t understand why this antenna is inferior then the original (2db) antenna?
It truly gives 3dB boost over original 2dB antenna - confirmed with RSSI feature of FrSky telemetry. Even though it is longer then stock antenna, still fits my Turnigy 9x styrofoam box, without removing antenna.
