    I haven't tried both, but I'm very happy with just the Blackhawk 9dBi on my range extender. Even with the Rotorpixel gimbal I get clear wifi out to where I lose 5.8 control signal - over 2300ft so far: see http://www.flytrex.com/mission/quadcopt ... ton-20368/

    Is the idea of the nimrod as well to give some close-in omnidirectional performance, so that you don't have to point the extender at the aircraft and can fly behind you a bit using FPV, etc?

    That's an impressive distance , I was looking though the horizon antenna and originally ordered the wrong type, had a chat with will and thought this one suited my budget and requirements. I think the omni could be useful that situation , bit of a cover all, I will see soon if it's right

    Cheers
