    Hoi,
    Is there a difference between a 2.4 and a 5.8 omni 3dbi antenna for my transmitter, or can i use both?

    Beario. How did you attach the antenna to the transmitter? Did it just screw on?

    Thanks

    You have to mod the radio in order to attach an antenna to it. Here is the video from Youtube. I have done 4 of these for all of the radios on my FC40's. I have gone out a little over 2 KM with this antenna without any issues.

    Okay thanks. I have seen this video before. Doesn't look to difficult at all. I see he used the intermediate 5.8 Ghz antennae
