    Yes, I have just emailed them, they have been quick to respond so far so I will post if I get a response tomorrow. If not perhaps you will call them Monday.

    Looks like a lot of unsupported weight on the threaded scd connectors? Hate to have that kind of tension and weight, with no added clamp or support to relive stress, Just my take on them?

    You were really moving in that video. I honestly thought it was going to take a plunge ! Good way to get her steady

    It wasn't me who created this video - this is a video of the power of the antennas by someone else that I wanted to share so people can see the power of these antennas. I bought a pair of them and really feel comfortable with them. It will take me sometime to build confidence to do a distance like this guy did.

    Yeah, but that was some trust near that water.

    OK, so I emailed Horizon about the Antenna specs and got the following reply:
    "well the antenna will go a lot further than the UAV can fly , using a lower gain antenna for example the video can go 4km easy .
    so its down to the camera and what it puts out , you can only collect more of the signal with better nets on the Pilot and perhaps a mod on the camera to make it better
    with an external antenna that does not actually move"

    The response i got from Horizon when asking for further details: -

    "Hi there ,

    We developed these antennas in the Blackhawk range these have proved super good .

    So we combined these to work with the typhoon . The weakest part on the typhoon H is the 5.8GHz video link. This has only a small Sp Antenna , the position of these are not set at a good position , the gain being only 1.7 dB on 5.8 GHz, white this new antenna there are two options , 11db and 14dB , this gives a big lift to the video link . So the limit is the camera transmit power and the battery in the UAV itself , you can fit a camera kit to the UAV to improve the link further.


    We will also be producing a linear panel ( Terminator ) version shortly. This will have a lot more gain , but just be bigger. It possible to tripod mound this and have a cable link to the ST16."

    Ive just ordered the 14GHZ for £59.

    Hello, you have any updates on your experience with your antenna? Distance?
