TrueRC 1.2GHz Gatling Antenna

The Gatling was created for a specific pilot looking for an ultra long-range antenna solution.

Splash

The Gatling provides a solid video link farther than most planes can fly.

In the world of fpv flying, something comes along every year or so that changes the game, if you will. From airframes to on screen displays, goggles to antennas, there's always something new that makes flying easier, safer, more exciting, or all of the above. The Gatling from TrueRC fits somewhere into those categories by effectively creating a video link that will probably outlast your UHF control link. Made up of four circular polarized crosshair antennas, the Gatling, as the name implies, is a high powered weapon. This isn't your everyday antenna though; at $400, the Gatling was created for a specific pilot looking for an ultra long-range antenna solution.

There is a 2.4 version, or a 2.3 if someone need one.

No, but be aware that at 910 it make a 22" square panel and therefore shipping will make a difference.

Nice one

I liked. For sure I'd buy one but is too expensive.

Considering all we put in our plane, if your need the antenna to bring it back, its not that expensive.
