    Custom Pepperboxes and cloverleafs by Mashton1138!

    One thing I have been trying to do for you 900MHz folks is figure out a way to make 910MHz pepperboxes. I can't. Well... I can... but I have many other things on my plate at the moment. Thus, I turned these over to Marc Ashton (Mashton1138). He has been building antennas for me for several years now and his work is exceptional.

    Marc has done a lot of work for me in the past, but family matters forced him to take a full-time job closer to home. Instead of working part-time for me, we decided it would be best for the FPV community for him to make antennas that I don't have the time to make. Below are a few antennas that Marc is offering:

    910MHz:
    Pepperbox

    1040-1200MHz:
    Pepperbox
    Crosshair
    Cloverleaf
    Skew wheel

    I already sent Marc some of my CAD files for the Pepperboxes so he will have the same supports as mine do. He is working on vacuum forming covers as well, so certain frequencies might be available with covers.

    If you need a custom antenna that nobody stocks, send Marc a PM (Mashton1138) with what you need.

    If it is broken, fix it. if it isn't broken, I'll soon fix that.

    Thanks Alex. I was trying to figure out how to go about getting the word out about this agreement.

    My plan is to have covers available for all Crosshairs and Pepperboxes I build eventually. I have successfully formed my first cover for my own 1280 Crosshair. Worked out Great!!! Just have to tweak the mold (don't care for the look) and former itself to ensure everything centers better, I didn't care how mine looked so it got mounted anyway for proof of concept.

    Here are a couple pics of a few antennas I made recently for guys Alex sent my way.

    1010 Pepperbox


    910 Pepperbox


    Back of the 1010 Pepperbox, the 910 looks identical to it.

    Readymade sells the Blubeams in 900MHz flavor. http://www.readymaderc.com/store/ind...roducts_id=801 If you wanted one on a certain length of coax or just don't want it built directly to the connector and would like it on a short piece (3 or 4 inch) of coax I could build one for you. But I don't have any pics of it since I haven't built one custom yet. I did build these,like you see in the link, for Alex for a while.
