Collinear craziness

So today's test involved fabricating a single segment collinear transmitter antenna. With collinear receiver and transmitter antennas, the improvement was huge. The trend with collinears is not a clearer picture but a longer distance and more polarized crummy picture.

Undecided about reinstalling a microphone because audio gives you rotor speed but is unintelligable with the interference.

Sadly, every day that passes without the $85 parts shipment reduces the chance that we'll fly the Corona again and increases the chance that we'll switch to a Slow Stick. With this kind of parts turnaround, the Corona is basically useless. They don't have the manufacturing capacity to make enough parts to sustain a useful flying machine.

The Slow Stick is hardly the most versatile, but is the easiest, cheapest, least risky way to get aerial HD. If we were software managers things would be different. Maybe there would be a Trex 600 in the future, or a condominium. Unfortunately only 1 in 1000 become software managers.
