    It look awesome, 5.8ghz turbines are real jewels.

    I haven't made the the tutorials for the 3 & 5 lobes units, Alex keep me busy simulating and building his crazy ideas

    I don't have any .6mm wire. what would the measurements to build a Turbine using .6mm wire?

    I am also using silver coated copper wire. does that matter?

    You mean you don't have 0.5mm and need sizes for 0.6mm??

    I would think silver coated copper wire will be a lot more malleable and thus not hold it's shape as well as MIG wire (copper coated steel).
    Don't steal, the government hates competition.

    too true but since I build 5.8ghz antennas they are small anyway.

    edit: them smash up good. Just finished some crazy inbetween trees and rocks flying. The crash smashed it up pretty good. I bent it back but will have to build another one What combo do you think is best for tree flying? 3 leaf and the the turbine?

    Add 1.7% to the dimensions. A heard good thing about a cloverleaf on the Tx and a turbine on the Rx.

    what do we need on the 2.4ghz receiver's end for 15km
    A 12T helical.

    I think I am going to give this another shot. My first attempt had some seriously bad results (4.5swr).

    Can you guys think of a way I can cad and cnc a jig to help me make these? PM if necessary ..i am not attempting to resell them or give out any info.

    I love the design of Turbine antenna, hope to make some 5.8ghz when I get ready with my next ritewing build.

    Is it possible to get a european guide in metric ? Im not used to work with inches
    And I don`t like to recalculate from inch to mm when it`s so precise.

    One question, what is up and down on antennas like this? dose it matter if you mount it sideways or upside down?
    I guess up is when your antenna cable is vertical and the active antenna part is on top
    The reason I ask is than I will have one helical and one Turbine on my tracker ground station and the best way to mount the Turbine antenna will be upside down .

    Upside down will work well too, however the null on top will be bigger because of the coax and others thing that may be over it.
    You can multiply by 25.4, you'll be as precise.
