“Universal” Vee Antenna

As a long standing product at VAS, the Vee antenna has performed for many enthusiasts looking for long range and compact size for years. However previously, if the operator decided to change to another frequency (ie. moving from 1.3Ghz to 2.4Ghz) they would have to purchase a new antenna. Not only were the operators incurring extra costs, they were wasting time and risking damaging their aircraft by having to install a new antenna. Enter the "Universal" Vee antenna designed by IBCrazy. Designed to be an single part number capable of meeting the individual's needs across the spectrum of frequencies used by...

5.8GHz ION V2 STUBBY ANTENNA (RHCP)

The V2 sacrifices no performance from the original version of the Ion but is over 1.5g lighter and 20% smaller. The Ion V2 is a true upgrade from its predecessor, with an increased axial ratio allowing for a much better rejection of oppositely polarized signals. We also addressed the large null from the original design, closing it up considerably.  The Ion V2 is a must have for any serious long range pilot. The Ion antenna is a high gain Circularly Polarized omnidirectional antenna with near perfect axial ratio. The Ion’s compact size and light weight make it ideal for those who...

5.8GHz Pepperbox (RHCP)

5.8GHz Pepperbox (RHCP) Designed specifically for the long range wanderer, the Pepperbox offers both high gain (13dbic) as well as wide beam width (180 degrees!). No antenna tracker is necessary for this antenna. Just aim in the general direction you intend to fly and go without worrying about aiming the antenna! Vertical coverage on this antenna is somewhat limited (only 60 degrees) so it is not suitable for high altitude runs. Specifications: Gain: 13dbic Axial ratio: 1.0 Beam width: 160 degrees Beam height: 60 degrees Weight: 38g (1.3oz) Part Number: PB-5800-R Retail: $49.95...
