Anyone heard of this new antenna from Horizon FPV?
Phantom Terminator Linear kit
What are the performance results?
Why can't we make them parabolic?
Yeah I just ran across that this morning. IIRC, they aren't available until April 17?
Patch antennas are already highly directional. That is how they obtain 14dBi.
Parabolas are used for reflectors not active elements.
Yep - here is the link I found this morning - the price is in dollars:
Phantom Terminator Linear kit - Midwest Horizon FPV Antennas
I have tried to study this but I still can't figure out how, like exactly, the linear signal leaves the patch antenna. It would be great if somebody could explain it. I don't just mean this patch antenna, I mean any patch antenna.
Nice but how is this better than the DBS mod?
mount a small satilte dish on your controller
For starters, they're claiming a ten mile range unamped.
Also, a lot of these world class long range pilots are seen holding these large panel antennas with their controller. So that's a clue that they know something most of us don't.
Looks very similar to the antenna used in this video:
Must be good!!
"We have tested this antenna at 10 miles its insaine !"
It is basically that same antenna as Unknown used in his unboosted 9.2 run and is different than the DBS in that its a dual 14 dBs gain antenna that "should work well the way they are spaced apart. Now us real users know that the bat mods that came from Horizon recently were NOT insane as they claimed and were tested by the same flyer, with all due respect! I dont know of this will be available when they say but I should have my hands on one of the first ones in coming days/weeks to test and will let you guys know on this here post since its already started what my "real world results are" unboosted and boosted with p3a/p & standard. Maybe even p2v+ just for kicks
Yeah I'll probably throw in for one of these as well.
But I'll let DB be the guinea pig first.
Edit: I just realized - that guy Keith in the vid is Unknown, isnt he?
I guess he needs a new name.
I'll definitely let you know how goes when I get it and put some numbers behind it. Unknown is a good guy doing some amazing stuff and if that panel puts a signal out there like I think it will I'm looking forward to it.
Great! Definitely keep us in the loop on this one. I, myself, am interested in this and a battery mod...even though, I'm not much of a long-distance flyer. I like the "stronger, unboosted-type" systems to get me through wifi-congested areas that I fly in. And the battery mod...well, I'd love to be able to fly longer without having to swap batteries often.
8 miles with the Terminator and Horizon Power mod ( 16 miles round trip ) , with the booster kit , you will not do this with a stock P4 the RC output is way to low for that.
Solid signals , score was 100 % signals.
Well its here! Its raining today so no flights! I may box this up and send it back before I even test it! They just put on there site this morning a bigger version! Dont you hate when that happens
Looking good there db, you got some cake to go with that.
Lol bigger version interesting, there coming out faster than I can read up about them is this the terminator 2 I vaguely remember coming across something?
I think it maybe 2 19db panels
Thats it, prob gonna need a tripod w/ that one
So I gather from your pic that both panels are 2.4ghz what would you use along side that for the standard?
