    Hi i have the Flysight TX 5804 400mw on my P2, with the flysight circular polarized antenna pinwheel. with this setup i can only get 500 in line of sight. i want to extend the range changing the antenna. What are the best antennas for this tx?
    thanks

    What kind of area are you flying in? Are you getting static free flight or is it bad? Depending on conditions 500m for pinwheels is about their distance. To extend this you need to get a helical.

    i tested it on the seashore, where i got 500/600 mt and in a park with some trees where i get 200/250 meters.... so it could be the limit of the pinwheels? what are helical antennas and what do you mean with "static free flight"?
    thanks for the suggestion :D
