    Only the tx spironet cloverleaf antenna

    Who stocks and sells only these? i need 2 transmitter Spironet dome antennas for 2 new crafts but i can only find sets of Rx + Tx . is it possible to buy the Tx alone?

    No suggestions? it seems strange that one must buy the 2 antennas if only one is needed :-(
    Every time i build a new craft, i buy a set and now i have 3 Spironet Rx antennas lying as spares.

    Fatshark, can i make a plea that you offer the antennas too as a single option?

    I don't actually sell the antenna, they are sold through ImmersionRC. They just started selling as singles but not sure if any retailers have purchased yet.
    Don't buy anymore, just use your RX antenna on the TX. The work great on a quad because of the longer length allows you to get the bulb out away from the frame.

    You can also build a system with 2 rx antenas or upgrade systems with a patch antenna on the receiver.
    So you can use one spironet rx as trasmitter and a patch on the receiver. Just try it and would be surprising .

    Only the tx spironet cloverleaf antenna

    All cloverleaf antennas work on both RX and TX. IBCrazy started selling 3-lobes as TX and 4-lobes as RX so everyone assumed that's the best when really you can mix them however you want.

    According to sircana (from Circular Wireless), the four lobes actually have a better axial ratio, which is why they don't even make 3-lobes. They claim better performance with two 4-lobes, I only have one 4-lobe so I can't confirm this.

    I would assume so, but they may be tuned to slightly different frequencies. I have not used spironet antennae so I can't say for certain. My guess is they're at least right hand circularly polarized (RHCP) so it should work.

    you can't mix circular polarized antenna with the stock (linear polarized) antenna
