Circular polarized antenna's aka "clover leaf antennas" are a great way to increase the performance of your FPV system. Proven to increase range and video clarity circular polarized antenna's have become the standard after market 'essential' upgrade for modern FPV systems.
Specs: Frequency Range: 2400~2500mhz Impedance: 50ohm VSWR: <1.5 Gain: 2db Connector: SMA Cable: RG316 Cable Length: 65mm
Yes. So long as you have a matched pair, RH and LH for your Tx and Rx. FPVtests on YouTube has a brilliant 4 part series walking you through how to do this, and gives real-world demonstrations of the results you can achieve with just antenna mods.
i realize theses are mainly used for video fpv but i was wondering if this can be used on a radio transmitter to help increase range without stomping on the airwaves with more power using a booster. i am looking to increase range ( 1km over stock) and reliabillity. thanks
You can bend them, don't get a sharp crease, but if you angle it ~90 degrees without a solid, sharp, kink, you should be fine. I have mine curved and it's fine. That's as far as I'd go 'folding' it though
*Simon: The Antenna with three "leaves" is called cloverleaf and belongs on the transmitter. the radiation pattern is less perfect but signal strength is higher.
The other one is called skew planar wheel. That one gives a more perfectly round shaped pattern. So perfect for a receiver.
Imagine the radiation patterns like a balloon. if u squeeze it it gets longer but also narrower. if u keep it round it's not as long in one direction but has a spherical shape.
i read 65 mm coax length
“skin effect” i hope not
Since the feedline is almost exactly ½ wavelength, the shield becomes resonant and acts as a dipole
so that mean this clover in not circulair????
what do you guys think of this
when my clovers arrive,,i test them on my analyzer
