My head got to spinning yesterday when surfing on "multi-polarized" antennas. Man there is too much I don't know about RF. But I am very susceptible to a good sales pitch
and I couldn't find any negative comments about Dr. Jack Nilsson's antennas except for some people who poo-pooed them out-of-hand (i.e. w/o experience) as "snake oil".
Anyway I found a deal on the Trident so grabbed it, and I may get one of those rubber duck attachments too as I think it might fit atop my 9dBi omni.
I've been focussed to-date on Signal Power but then read that Polarity was a major factor also in signal loss, and given our Drones' ants apparently are Horizontally polarized, it seems the couple vertical omnis I have here may not be the best to use. Though I did also yesterday angle my 9dBi omni to a horizontal position and it didn't seem to affect at least the signal strength at all.
Unfortunately it seems the only real data we can glean about the quality of our Drone's signals in-flight, is whether they crash, or they don't crash!!!
Thanks for letting this squat here a while longer anyway.
Oh btw in my surfing a guy from mpantenna was found to post on a RC airplane site that was talking I think about FPV stuff. Anway I may email him and see what he thinks about our unique WiFi challenges.
