    Is the signal score #'s accurate? am I to assume that if I do the exact same run, and one run has lower #'s and another run has higher #'s is this a way to test signal strengths ?

    Using the same drone, same remote, testing different antenna's could you essentially determine which antenna is better?

    thx

    I test a lot of diff antennas & I've had minor signal issues on a run (bars drop slightly then regain) on one antenna, then on the next run mins later a perfect signal. The HD score showed a 100% for both. So I dont think its more accurate than your own experience and evaluation.

    You have to perform antenna testing in controlled, repeatable, and calibrated conditions.

    Too many variables with just ad-hoc flying around to be meaningful.

    flying every single night, same time, same alt. speed. course (almost exact), 1 antenna config. shows #'s of almost exactly the same. every time.

    Another config shows different #'s
