I’ve seen a few YouTube videos about these… and they seem to trump parabolic reflectors.
The videos I saw involved an MM. I’ve no idea if/how they’d work with Occusync.
Has anyone tried them?
PS - I won’t be using them, just interested if they really do extend range.
Better ask @scottydog, he has just got some and can give you the low down as to what they are like (i think!).
Over to you Scott.
Damn it! I did search for Yagi before I posted. Sorry
Sorry mate, couldn’t resist
I had a feeling my ears would start burning with this post.
Rather than go deep down geeky all I’ll say is that both the tested antennas are merely inspired by the real things and that’s where the similarities end.
I love reading your geeky stuff… but fair enough. Point made.
I have got some for the mini but have not tested as I’ve now bought a M2p but I cannot see how they would work with anything that changes channels in flight as they are either 2.4 or 5.8 the 2.4 does not work on 5.8 and the 5.8 don’t work on 2.4 , I bought a set of 5.8 ghz ones off Amazon they don’t work at all and the 2.4ghz ones I got off the guy who does the YouTube videos with them on his mini but as yet I’ve not tested.
So today I took the mavic mini out for a flight, I haven’t flown it since my upgrade to M2P so thought I would just give it a spin, I dropped the yagi’ s on I got from Explore with DJI Alex and locked it in 2.4ghz and I have to say they really did work for me anyway , nice solid signal , no drop out at all , so from what I did I would recommend these, I did get the 5.8ghz ones off Amazon and they did nothing but the 2.4ghz from explore with DJI Alex worked for me. It was great fun to get out there with the mini again such a fantastic little thing for the money and although a different beast compared to the M2P I still love it .
Yeah, I’ve seen a few of his videos on YouTube. He was claiming 4.5km in one of them
I guess where he is flying makes a big difference but for me I just wanted the stronger reliable signal as I have lots of trees and radio interference
Plus he must have fantastic eye sight as I can loose the little bugger at a couple of hundred metres if I haven’t got the strobon Cree on lol
I know what you mean. Fantastic eyesight that guy!
OK … So just a quick query.
I’ve checked out the ‘Yagi antennas for the DJI Mini / Mini SE’ but can’t see the answer I’m looking for. Both the DJI Mini and the DJI Mini SE use the same controller which means that the antennas are the same.
I am looking to get a pair of Yagi antennas for my DJI Mini SE. However … the controller has TWO antennas, which I assume to be … 1. for drone control… and 2 for wifi reception of a 5G wifi FPV video feed.
If I were to buy a pair of Yagi antenna add-ons, would I need 2 x 2.4Ghz Yagis? … or 1 x 2.4Ghz Yagi and 1 x 5.8Ghz Yagi ? … and if the latter, which Yagi would go on which of the controller’s antennas ??
There is lots of information on here regarding the Yagi antennas, a lot of conflicting information.
Waste of money pal
I would save your hard earned to pay for the electricity bill charging the batteries.
Being a radio enthusiast and using yagi (Yagi-Uda) antennas to talk around the world, I can safely vouch for them (though I do prefer Quad antennas ). My problem is that I am new to DJI drones and am trying to understand how they transmit both control signal and FPV.
