Pagoda antenna and usually antennas are RHCP. Anyway, you should order spare antennas because those will break sooner or later

Here is some pagoda antennas:
Realacc
Emax
UFOFPV

What is the advantage of a Pagoda antenna over a CP or dipole antenna?

However, I'm a bit upset my biggest request/complaint went ignored.
I begged Eachine to not use the A8s for the last two months and use the X6B, they insisted since it was a better seller to use over the X6B. I'm personally worried unless Flysky fixes the bugs In the A8s that there will be so many flyaways etc. Simply put, the A8s RX is not good news. If Flysky doesn't Correct this RX soon we may have to offer them custom With Frsky Radios installed instead, or at lease switch Rx's.

That's a shame. There is still no guarantuee that the issues with the A8S are fixed now, afaik FlySky is still checking how to send out the latest version out for testing, but even that is not sure.

X6B would have been a better choice, and the extra weight is no issue on something with this much power.

Acceptable sure, but the old Wizard was acceptable. This is supposed to be the upgraded version, I'm not asking for much, < $10 (retail) total in changes.

A mere $5.99 retail, far less for them at cost, less the difference of the cost of the stock lens.

Also another $2.79 on these soft mounts for FC:

and $2 a buzzer are all this quad needs:

BG If you're listening, soft mount the FC like you did the motors, put a buzzer like you have all your recent micros and switch out that lens and the new Wizard will be perfect.

170* on an FPV cam isn't for all. I'm good with 135* Any wider, and depth perception is thrown off too much. Also, I bought those exact stand offs for my Wizard. They do not fit. They only thread on maybe 2mm and the stock stand offs are around 5mm. You would have to replace all the FC standoffs with shorter ones too.

Runcam Swift 2 with 2.5mm lens. Best upgrade I could of put on it, aside from RS2205s ! Plus I can see battery voltage now via an OSD. No need for an annoying buzzer.

I too got the Runcam Swift2 with 2.5mm. I have not swapped it in yet - will do this weekend. I want the battery voltage on OSD and I want the microphone. (Swift2 gives me both)

Had a change of heart.. gonna build instead of waiting on the x220s .. Using higher end components and gonna cost about the same as the ARF version with a 4mm frame..
Will keep a eye on the wizard and see how the reviews go and still might pick one up later on when the price drops a bit..
