Video Aerial Systems 5.8GHz BlueBeam Omni Antenna System - The Perfect FPV Upgrade.
Widely recognized as one of the most prolific and knowledgeable antenna makers in the FPV scene, "IBCrazy" via Video Aerial Systems produces some of the best FPV antennas on the market today, bar none. Ranging from all styles, frequency solutions and range capability, Video Aerial Systems antennas are the ultimate FPV solution when it comes to your video down link system.
Designed to replace the stock, low performance dipole style antennas that are included with FPV equipment, these circular polarized antennas increase overall range and video clarity, and are a low cost, easy to install solution to effectively boost your FPV capability.
Built right on top of an SMA Male connector, these BlueBeam Omni style antennas allow the end user maximum flexibility in choosing the extension of choice and optimum length, based upon the system at hand - preferable 2" or greater to be sure the antenna system clears the transmitter and other such objects. However, even direct mount to transmitter and receiver systems will work very well, based upon this optimum design.
Including a designated antenna for the transmitter and receiver, this RHCP (Right Hand Circular Polarized) cloverleaf antenna set not only functions well as a pair, but allows the end user to upgrade to other receiver antenna systems, such as helical based directional antenna systems - more info below. With a helical antenna system, diversity based receiver systems can take advantage of both omni-directional range, and greater directional range by utilizing (2) antenna styles for optimum FPV performance.
For the very best in FPV antenna selection, Video Aerial Systems are the FPV antenna to choose, providing you with the range and flexibility needed for your next FPV flight.

FPV flight offers new realms of possibility, putting you in the pilot's seat with a view like no other. Not only are you able to fly in a whole new way, but new elements of range & altitudes can be obtained, bringing an all new element of RC flight.
It is always the responsibility of the pilot to make sure that the aircraft is being operated safely, and within safe limits. Respect full scale pilots - NEVER exceed altitudes of 400' or greater, and never operate near active airports or runways. Always operate in safe environments, away from people, animals and otherwise.
It is always recommended to have a partner / buddy to keep your aircraft in sight in case of video drop out. Always be sure to practice safety, and always be sure to never exceed the limits of your RC transmitter. Never fly in populated areas where people are present, and always fly in areas that will not be compromised if a crash were to occur.
With higher power FPV systems, there is the complete possibility of flying beyond the range of your RC transmitter - be sure to take all proper precautions to avoid this, as any such situations are not covered under any element of warranty, repair, refund, credit or otherwise. In short, common sense is key - use good judgment, and practice safety with every flight.
HeliDirect LLC, or any company associated with HeliDirect LLC, will not be held liable for damage, personal injury, property damage, or any liability associated with any aspect of FPV flight - the end user accepts ALL risks & responsibilities.
* A Note On Range:
One of the most common questions with FPV flight is "how far will it go" - anyone who provides you with a specific range is either not being truthful, or is simply unaware. The range of your FPV system has an incredible amount of variables that no one can factor - this can be variables such as electronic placement, power output, antenna style, location, line of sight, local bandwidths, and on & on it goes. Simply put, no one can tell you the "true range" of any FPV system, so it is an absolute MUST to take every precaution necessary to avoid any aspect of loss or damage to anything while flying.
When flying FPV, do not depend upon your equipment, as no matter what you are flying, failure is always an option. When safety & common sense are used, you will reap the amazing rewards of FPV flight, all the while brining your aircraft home safe & sound.
Range of your FPV system is not guaranteed - use proper FPV systems & techniques to maximize your range, but please be aware that far too many variables exist to guarantee the effective range of any FPV system.
