Antenna orientation, wear & tear, and non-directionality have been the source of some range issues with our long range and mini quad pilots. We sat down with IBCrazy and he designed this antenna to be as durable as possible. A diamond lasts forever!
With a slight directionality to give you more range when flying in front of you, but still, maintain a solid link when flying behind you. The antenna uses the ground you are standing on to reflect and therefore boost your signal out beyond what traditional antennas can manage.
