14dbi 2.4GHz patch antenna with EagleEyes ground station


I'm using this 2.4GHz patch antenna with the EagleEyes Antenna Tracker. It seems to function fine but I'm worried the antenna may be too heavy and putting a strain on the structure of the antenna tracker and the gears and motors in the servos. What do you guys think? Should I downgrade to the 8dbi antenna? Should I use different servos? I'm currently using the stock servos (HS-485HB)

You should be fine as long as you have the receiver mounted on the back side of the tilt mount (or some other counter weight). I use an 8dBi 900MHz antenna and the 11dBi 2.4GHz diversity antenna which are both the same size and approximately the same weight with no issues.
