What is the weight on the tx pinwheel for 5.8ghz?

I need something as light as possible for a micro quad fpv setup.

Hello Randy,
they 5.8 pinwheels weight about 6 grams.
They can be done lighter, but then they become very fragile.

Hello Broderick,
sorry it took 10 days, but your antennas are ready and shipped this morning.
Marty above had the longest wait of 2 weeks after I came back from my NY holidays. After this order, the wait time has fallen to 5 days, so definitely catching up to my usual 3-4 days order- to-built time frame.

antennas:
1160mhz, SWR just below 1.2:1 for the antenna with the 90 connector,
and 1.1:1 for the antenna with the straight connector.

You will like these, as I have several customers that went further than 10KM with a pair of these omnis.

... you'll get plenty of tree/bush penetration with these, I suggest using a lower power tx, I have these on a 980mhz, on my tricopter and have flown as far as 3km with 150mw 900mhz transmitter, picture was still very very good.

well i've got a lawmate 1w 1.2 and a RMRC 1.2 400mw one..The Lawmate with my present dipoles has the edge on bush penetration,albeit only slightly better,but the RMRC 400mw has a much sharper picture and better colours through the goggles.so swings and roundabouts really.
I'll try the 400mw first as you suggest..
Also got a tiny Lawmate 100mw 1.2 but not tested that yet..
