I’ve nearly finished my setup ready for the spring, (homebuilt using some parts from my Titan Cyclone) 2 X 3 watt boosted 14dbi and a nice bright CS ultra, because an iPad mini 4 just don’t cut it in bright sunlight. The Titan cyclone did me well and got me 5th on the long distance Mavic LB, but at distance HD was poor so I needed more signal. I’ve had a test of this setup and it performs superb.
That is by far, the biggest antenna mod I’ve ever seen!!
Did you mod it yourself?
Is it heavy?
Yep, made by me, it weighs around 2000 grams, will be tripod mounted.
I can’t tell from the photo, is it powered? If so, via the controller? Or it’s own battery?
It has a battery inside, I get about 3hr of flight time before it needs charging
@My-Mavic-My-Rules are you still around mate?
Can you share how you boosted this to 14db gain?
Notifying @Ashmav of this thread too
Sorry for the late reply as I totally forgot about the email notification as I was away from home. I got 2 of these antennas from eBay and removed the outer plastic casing.https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Antenna-Panel-Directional-WiFi-Router-Flat-In-Outdoor-2-4GHz-14dBi-Free-Ship/253334233988?hash=item3afbe5a384:g:jRYAAOSw8gVX2O-r
I used the parts from my Titan Cyclone ie…amps,battery,voltage meter, twist lock & quick fit connectors and made a bigger version of the cyclone and slapped on a CS & tripod mount. The pics show the difference between the tiny 9Dbi Cyclone patches and the bigger 14dbi ones I’ve installed
That’s amazing, I love it!
Thanks for the details mate
Not sure I can butcher my shiny Titan Atlas just yet though… perhaps in time…
Jesus how did I miss this bad boy!!
Nice work chap!
Can’t believe how small the patches are compaired to yours . This is right up my street.
I’m even tempted to get a pair of these and leave them permanently fixed in my back garden and connect them up to my atlas as I have spare female adapters to comect to.
For the price they are well worth experimenting with. I’ve had mine apart for a rebuild today, it’s a bit bigger now lol. Can’t wait to try it out, I need to work out how to get FCC on my CS as well
Don’t suppose you’ve got an RF meter @My-Mavic-My-Rules ?
Some of us are running a custom GO4 app on the CS mate, with FCC, Google Maps (and some other tweaks) enabled - brief details here, shout if you need more info
Nah, I don’t have an RF meter
