Yes! Probably the best high- quality performance antennas you can buy. I love all of my VAS equipment- outstanding performance all around.

Thanks for the support, guys. Always happy to read a recommendation and happy customers. I'm happy to still be manufacturing here in the USA and not farming it out to China. Call me old fashioned, but I like the good old American way

The guys I fly with are pretty against your antennas Alex, I hear "bad quality" and "breaks easy" often. Any comments on that? I'm unbiased as I haven't used them before.

Perhaps they are flying knock-offs or something? Or perhaps they are referring to the right angle adapters? Mine survive hundreds of wrecks. I used to test durability by running them over with my car and folding them back. I did have one batch of cables that ended up with weak connections to the base. They were fine until I started putting covers on them. After that, I added a crimp collar. Now they usually break the transmitter they are attached to in a wreck.

I have two of your antennas that broke. Bought both from Getfpv so they should be real.
Both broke the coax shield right at the SMA connector.
One is the BluBeam 3 element and other is the Mad Mushroom.

When the antenna bends it bends sharply right at the SMA connector. This point really needs a lot more stress relief to prevent it from bending sharply.

I now running a Circular Wireless SPW58 antenna and this one has held up very well to all my inverted landings.

Nah genuine antennas for sure, mostly complaining about the lobes coming off. Maybe a bad batch hey
