No, it will have bad response with a 1.2Ghz system(shorter frequencies have larger wavelengths and hence need longer antennas).
At the moment I can't find any antennas for 1.2Ghz systems on HobbyKing but you can do a Google search about DIY circular polarized antenna or DTY Patch antenna.
Hope this helps! :-)
Hi, I have been given one of these, unfortunately I'm on 5.8 however after reading up I'm lead to believe these panel antenna will work for both? Can anybody confirm for sure if this will work with my 5.8 system ? Thanks
Actually, there should be no problem as long as your router has removable antennas. Just remember that this is a DIRECTIONAL antenna, so you will need to keep it pointed in the general direction of your devices.
Only if you're within the specified angle from antenna (110/45 degree). But if you want high range wifi bridge - it's perfect. I have the 2 routers with yagi antennas, I exceed 30 mbit/sec * 300 meters in noisy enviroment (plenty of wifi networks in the same area)
It really depends on your setup. If you are using a 14dBi directional patch, WITH a tracking base station, AND there is no 2.4Ghz interferance in the area you are flying in, you should be able to reach up to about 15K. But keep in mind you will have to be using UHF on your transmitter for control in order to keep up with this distance. I hope this helps you out.
With this antenna your looking at getting 7-10k now hook this patch up with diversity and a 19dbi yagi on a ground tracking station and you will be in business for close to long range flying 15k easily
It depends alot on the mw of tx and your enviroment electronic noise can limit distance also direct line of site gives best range that means nothing between you and plane, that is why a lot of videos as the plane flys further away it flys higher.
You can use a link budget calculator and you will get reasonable data. however, if you know what is your current range of good reception, with assuming 2dbi antenna, now using 14dbi you have extra 12 dbi.
if you had 0.5Km, your new range would be approx 2
if you had 1Km, your new range would be approx 4
if you had 2Km, your new range would be approx 7
This is just an estimate based on not enough data.
3G operates on the 850 mhz, 900 mhz and 2100 mhz. It might boost the range a LITTLE bit, but it's not tuned, so not much.
4G LTE uses 1800 and 2200 mhz if I am not mistaken. On 4G LTE you might do a little better on the 2.2 Ghz, but again, not much.
Can I connect multiple antennas to increase the distance? This product comes with the glasses? Where can I connect the receiver? how do I install the mount of the camera (with mobile servos)? If I install the antenna 2.4 GHz 14 dBi Directional, I need another accessory to complement it?
this antenna must be connected to a video reciever : the best ones are made by Lawmate.
Then this video Reciever must be connected to a display device, like the Fatshark Googles available by HobbyKing.
In the Plane, you must install a camera, and a video transmitter (you can use a Fatshark transmitter, and a Fatshark camera : they work well together and havevplug and play cables : you don't need to solder anything).
Regarding the base station : either install the Patch antenna on a tripod a
Luis you have to study a lot before purcasing anything! You know nothing for now so start reading a bit and then you buy the equipment. When I wanted to start fpv I first studied about a year, reading artcicles about fpv in foroums and sites in general. You should do the same!
Yes, it's a standard 2.4 ghz antenna. It should work fine as a Wifi extension. Just be aware, that it's a pretty directional antenna, and the included connector (SMA) is probably different from the connector on your router.
Hi there, yes it will work very well as it is meant to be used for the 2.4ghz frequency band, it will give you longer range for you transmitter because of the 11dbi rating which amplifys the transmitter power by 11 decibels, for every 1 decibel increase in the rating of the antenna the power output of the transmitter is doubled. hope this helps you cheers
Das sage ich dir was ein Beschiss. Mal eben den Versand Verdoppeln ganz klasse.
Da lohnt das bestellen ja schon wieder fast nicht.
1 thumbs up!
Test review of this antenna : it is very big (18cmx21cm and 4,5cm deep). It is also way too heavy to fit on an antenna tracker like eagle tree or immersionRC (it's almost 400g itself and 430g with screws and mounting plate).
Regarding the results : it is really not good enough, worse than an omnidirectionnal antenna !! I've also compared it to a 12 dBi patch antenna from another FPV store : the other antenna performs way much better. The antenna from the other store is smaller (12cmx12cm) and much lighter : 119g.
How it was tested : I've let my plane inside my house and I compared the signals with an omni, the HK patch antenna and another patch. Distance from home : 200 meters.

Tested this antenna. My testfield without obstacles is 500m long, at 500m theres a mound and I can go 50m further, but then I couldn`t see the house where the transmitter was in the 2. floor window. Used the HK 100mW transmitter with a homemade RHCP cloverleaf-antenna and I got a nice, absolute clear picture 500m away when. At 550m I had to hold the antenna still at right spot cause of the mound to get a clear picture. Ground range tests give very short range compared to aerial range so it will reach much longer. I noticed that I had to hold antenna 125-130cm over ground to get best picture.
Visual quality is good. I bought an antenna for the radio controls. Its very convenient to fix on a tripod or a ground station. Good price! it is very big (18cmx21cm and 4,5cm deep). It is also way too heavy to fit on an antenna tracker
