    No, we haven't, but as you said, it is light enough (and with the CoG close enough to the tilting axis) to be easily moved by any antenna tracker.

    Wow very nice this is definitely on my buy list as soon as RMRC get some in.The size is amazing for 1.3 . I just cut a piece of paper to those dimensions to visualize this better and it is the same saize as the 2.4 crosshair I have.

    Aeryck this should work fine on the Skylark tarcker as it is rated to one kg on the antenna.My AAT 4 with the dual servos handles the Circular wireless 1.2 Helical easily which is a beast compared to this.
    Most of the money I made this year I spent on FPV,the rest I just wasted.

    Yep, this is going to breathe new live into my antenna tracker that I built for 5.8GHz and mothballed when I went to 1.3GHz.

    It wasn't so much the weight I was concerned with. =) The way the antenna mounts on the tracker, plus the fact that on initialization the tracker points straight up, I was more worried that the video rx on the back of the antenna would get jammed against the tracker body when it goes full vertical tilt.

    In any case I will probably try it out; it appears light enough that if I used a standoff for clearance for the video rx it wouldnt offset the weight too badly and the tracker could still move it.
    Far better is it to dare mighty things, even though checkered by failure; than to take rank with those who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

    Congrats! That looks like a piece of art, are you sure it also works as an antenna?
