    Hey Guys, my current set-up is a Phantom 2, H3-3D, GoPro 3, ImmersionRC 600mw 5.8Ghz transmittor, and a 32Ch Black pearl Monitor. Now my question is I'm using the stock antenna's and would like to upgrade to a set of clover leafs or SpiroNet antennas but don't know which connectors I have. I see some sites sell SMA, RP-SMA, etc. I need to know which set to purchase. Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    If you buy from FPVLR.com his antennas show which SMA connector you for that TX. The antenna connector on your TX is female input so take the stock antenna off and look at it.

    @jason, thanks for the quick reply! I just took off the top 2 antennas on the black pearl and they are male... [​IMG]
    Now I took off the antenna that connects to the transmitter and that is female...

    Does that make sense or do I have it the other way around?

    The top picture is gonna need a RP-SMA and the bottom one will need a SMA to hook up according to the pictures on that site .
    RP-SMA=female
    SMA=male
