  1. Fantastic antenna for the price

    Posted by clint ligthart-schenk on 6th Sep 2016

    I have been using this antenna and getting fantastic results. I think it is really amazing for the price. I have other antennas that cost me about $100 that are no better. I also received a free velcro battery strap as a gift so thanks to the guys at Multiwii for that.
    I am very impressed with their service.
    I made a purchase from another company called XtremeHobby in Queensland and am still waiting 5 months later!

    So it has been fantastic to deal with a company LIKE MWC that cares, Thanks guys (0:

  2. great antenna

    Posted by Unknown on 7th Nov 2015

    Thought I'd try a nasa directional antenna
    Compared it to my spironet.
    This nasa directional antenna out performed the spironet.
    I was quite impressed - good price.
    I'm going to get another for sure.

  3. 1KM Long Outback Airstrip Test

    Posted by Paul Waghorn on 12th Jul 2015

    Tried this NASA helical out at an outback 1 km long airstrip on my goggles.
    Flew low level all the way to the end and back no problems. Here is my video http://youtu.be/f8d2cYqtR9Y

  4. High Performance Antenna

    Posted by Andrew on 19th Jan 2015

    If you're looking to get longer range out of your FPV setup don't be fooled by people saying that you need a better vtx, as most of the time you can double your range by changing the Antenna on your ground station. Thats what I have done with this antenna. It gives great quality video reception. It is well made and the flexible adapter allows you to point it in the direction you're flying and it stays there. Highly recommend.

  5. A very cheap way to really increase your range

    Posted by Martin Ward on 29th Dec 2014

    Nice, well made product. Works very well and still gets excellent reception up to 40degrees to the side. I have now tested this out to 630m - with my goggles running this and a 4 bladed cloverleaf the reception was just as good as it is at 50m. I'm sure the range is even further but I'm reluctant to fly further over the neighbours dairy farm even though I have permission.
