TBS is a new player in the 5.8 GHz game. Taking the typical TBS approach, we look at the shortcomings of the current offerings and try to find niches for innovation. The TBS 5.8 GHz Patch antenna is one of them. Designed by the godfather of circular polarization (IBCrazy, Video Aerial Systems LLC) and manufactured by Team BlackSheep, this antenna is your cheap entry into circular polarization. The 5dbi gain provides enough beamwidth to comfortably mount this patch antenna directly to your goggle-receiver.
The typical range for this antenna is a very comfortable 1.5km on a 200mW transmitter (which translates to 3-4km if we use the same metrics as our competition). It thus matches or outperforms all existing Cloverleaf / Skew-Planar-Wheel combinations, but it only has a 110 degree coverage. It's more rugged and durable than all of the other receiver antennas too, and lighter.
Use this antenna for your everyday flights at the field in combination with our Fatshark Dominator 5.8 GHz receiver.
5700 - 5900 MHz working frequency

TBS pays a royalty to IBCrazy for each antenna sold!
They are a decent price and do what they are meant to. Build quality looks a little on the cheap side but since they are sitting on your goggles I don't think it will be an issue. if you don't have a patch and not too much money I would recommend this. If you have the extra money though I'd buy the fatshark patch antennas since it's build quality seems much higher (But more than double the price)
