Product Description

These Nimbin magic-mushroom antenna are cool !  a PAIR - Rx and Tx - combination set - For FPV aerial photography5.8Ghz Ops -  these skew planar 4 bladed 5.8Ghz cloverleaf style video Rx antennas give clear video vision (with or without OSD) and good colour with no colour shift inside normal Aerial photography Ops radius of 1050m.  Includes the matching 3 bladed Cloverleaf Tx antenna in this set.  in direct Line-of-sight (LOS) these can be used out to 1.5km if operating at 400 ft alt.  Antenna feature gold plated female connectors and bend-n-stay co-axial cables.  Due to the short wavelength of 5.8Ghz it requires direct LOS - so you cant fly in rain, nor behind buildings etc on 5.8Ghz regardless of what you think you see on youtube.  This ties in with legal requirements to maintain the aircraft in LOS and general comon sense duty of care in any case.  

Whats the difference internally between the Nimbins & the Boofheads here? Boofheads are made with flatten solid copper wires - Nimbins are made with much stronger rounded steel wires - buy one of each and make up your own mind   5.8ghz-fpv-antenna-nimbin-4210.jpg

 

Nimbins Features

  • skew planar 4 bladed 5.8Ghz cloverleaf video Receiver antenna
  • matching matching 3 bladed Cloverleaf Tx antenna
  • Bend-n-stay for multicopter ops
  • Gain = 1.3 db (4 bladed Rx) 1.1 db (3 bladed Tx)
  • omni RHCP, Right Hand Circular Polarization
  • Beam = donut 360 ° degrees
  • Flat, solid copper wires - not plated 
  • if crashed - Note the case may break open in a hard crash and the user will have to Glue it back up - the 2 cases are only held together by 4 small plastic spigots internally
  • This SET - Includes both Tx or Rx - warranty does not cover any type of crash or break from impact etc - We strongly recommend you put a few drops of extra-thin CA superglue on them seam of the grey lid (where the colour band is) before you fly.
  • RP-SMA Plug Female pin internally - gold plated connector - we also nip the antenna on with a spanner/wrench to make sure it does not loosen in flight. if you overtighten these they ill break
  • Rx 4 blade Ant Fits directly to Flytech® Video Googles

  • size = 90x35x35mm each
user note 1 ; CARE : if flying in corrosive salty or humid environments user is advised to coat with clear laquer spray - non conductive acrylic or enamel spray to prevent copper corrosion.
user note 2 : DONT BEND ; The antenna may appear to be slightly out of alignment - leave it alone - it will work fine  - The wires are made from steel - DO NOT try to bend them by hand because you will just end up snapping off the softer solder metal - soldering joints dont bend - they break!   If you do try to muscle these and you break them off - use a temperature control iron set to 340°C  - re-aplly them at the correct angle in the first instance.
user note 3 ; RANGE : Range is dependant on a) direct LOS un-obstructed - b) humidity c)rain d)Tx and Rx frequency accuracy lock e)Transmitter power f)interference devices in proximity to Tx and Rx antenna g) Quality of the Video gear itself h) will not transmit or receive thru a person or a person head H) condition of the solder joint - if damaged or cracked from crash or storage/transport - resolder one side at a time using flux - DONT TRY TO BEND STEEL WIRES!

  1. Highly Reccomend

    Posted by Andrew on 19th Jan 2015

    When flying a mini quad you very quickly realise that you can fly through some very small and tight gaps. Its all part of the proximity fun. Unfortunately this means that your FPV antenna can sometimes get caught on things or if you crash it can get bent or damaged. The Nimbin Antennas are great as firstly they are short and mean you don't have to worry about getting snagged but also being enclosed in the plastic cover it protects the lobes from getting damaged or bent. The reception and picture quality is fantastic and I would highly recommend this antenna for the serious FPV racer or Proximity flyer.
