I bought this a while ago to try on my H. Lou Ming (youtube) did some testing a while back and this little puppy
did really well. I had to make my own pigtail with some soldering of connectors and semi rigid coax.

I will try this weekend.

Yes I also saw that video I also was considering going the mini patch route, but I got sidetracked a bit as my TH has gone great distance without alterations from standard, but look forward to seeing your test results as I may still go that route for a bit of added insurance to avoid any prospect of loss of video feed.

The furthest I have been out so far is 1km. Any further and I would have been over a highway. Perfect signal so
I know I haven't maxed out yet.

Ive been contemplating getting that antenna Brent, looking forward to your review. I saw somewhere that you really dont need to put a pigtail on it, just attach as is to the ST16. This way it fits in the case without having to remove it. Can you do a distance test with the tail on and with it off by any chance?

This type of antenna is what the ST16+ has on it now as well.

Thanks sdharris!
How far did you get with video before losing telemetry?
