3dr 915 mhz antenna?

hey guys... Id imaine many of you are using the 3dr 915 mhz telemetry radio's in your systems? I picked up a pixhawk FC combo and it came with the 915mhz USB ground station radio, and a 915mhz TX for my 550 sized quad. The issue im having is the included antenna's are actually cheap bendable 2.4 ghz wifi type antenna's! The range on these are complete garbage. I am getting mavlink dropouts at 200m at times.

does anyone here know where I can find actual 915mhz antenna's with the proper connector's for these 3dr telemetry modules? Im sure the range would be 5x better with the proper freq. antenna.what are you guys findings with these?

Re: 3dr 915 mhz antenna?

You didn't say what connector, but this outfit makes great antennas.
Most antenna they make will have a N connector. But they have cables and will make cables to order.


Another great place for cables is Infinite Cables
Lots of types/connector combos, and they do custom for good price.

Good luck
This hobby is a Slickness!
