The Cyclone antenna set is the highest performing Omni Directional antenna set at the entry level price point. While these two antennas have Gain of only 0.6-0.71dbic, they both boast a mind blowing Axial Ratio of 0.94 making them the most Circular Omni Directional antennas on the market at any price point.
Originally designed with the Professional Aerial Photographer in mind, the Cyclone’s Axial Ratio makes the Cyclone ideal for the Hobbyist looking to fly in previously “un-flyable” terrain or environments. Indoor, Underground and Urban flying present special circumstances that the Hobbyist must find “work-around” to fly comfortably, the Cyclone excels in these types of environments. We recommend only experienced pilots place the Cyclone on their Race Quads, but anyone flying Fixed Wing or larger AP platforms will love the performance of this antenna and should have this RF marvel in their arsenal.
The Cyclone set was originally sold as a pair of Cyclones and durability was an issue for those newer race pilots who tend to crash a lot. As such we did not recommend its use as a beginner transmit antenna, unless mounted to the vehicle per our instructions. With that in mind we went back to the drawing board. The result was the Rotor Antenna. A 20% smaller form factor, but the ability to take a hit and ask for more. The Rotor has all the great performance of the Cyclone, only now beginners can enjoy the benefit of high axial ratio in an antenna that should stand up to most "hard landings".
