Pepperbox Antenna

Just spotted this bad boy at RMRC and ordered it.

http://www.readymaderc.com/store/ind...oducts_id=1288

It's meant to be stationary, but I might put it on a pan and tilt anyway. I'm nothing if not a lover of overkill!

Maybe I'll get a 2.5W tx and fly 100 miles Bwahahahahaha

lol.

Anyway pretty psyched by the specs of this antenna. I love my crosshair, and this is two crosshairs. What could be better?

Interesting ! Sounds like an affordable alternative to Hugo's gatling antenna (Hugo's work is great, maybe he has something similar). Post the results !

You were probably not addressing me, but according to the vid any rhcp antenna will do. I have a cloverleaf on my vid tx.

That's what this will be replacing. Going away from diversity. I found my crosshair was so good on the tracker that I didn't really need an omni. I am hoping to improve vid quality and distance with the pepperbox.

Yea went to the site just after posting and got my answer. Will look at the vid before asking further questions.

I use the cloverleaf, skew planar and mad mushroom antennas all with excellent results. I went 7 miles yesterday on a 1000mw vtx and cloverleaf with no drop outs. Excellent antenna for long range and also pretty good with low altitude and behind trees.

I'd like to see the live feed of the pic at 7 km, because I can do the same distance with a patch antenna on the VRx and Vee on a 200 mW VTx. The image is grainy at that distance, but I'd expect better of a 100 $ antenna, but I guess this one is more suited to moderate distance and large coverage.
