    Do you have a product to upgrade the antennas on the aircraft side too? Putting a high gain on the transmitter is nice... but to get max benefit you need to match polarization on the aircraft too.
    When nothing else out there will suit your needs... design and build it yourself.

    It's the sole responsibility of the customer who flew there...

    BTW another 8.5 miles flight and back.

    Adding antennas to the copter to match polarization is even better but do you have battery to go more than 8.5 miles?

    Just curious.

    it it were my flight then it would be a concern to me, but since it's not, then it isn't.
    This is merely a customer's screen shot. I just have used it to show the antennas' performance, everything else is irrelevant to me.

    doesn't look like it from the level of orders of long range antennas and antennas to allow to fly from inside the house, doing FPV on people's TVs, straight on their couch!

    57% of our sales are international, it's not domestic at all!

    The more legislation forces people to fly from their homes....so more antennas for us to build!

    Seriously?
    That's like blaming the car company if someone uses a car to run someone over. It's not kondor's job to police what people do with his antennas. Leave him alone, don't do the FAA's job for them.

    There is nothing we could have done to stop this. If you want to complain to someone, go find the guy who actually made the flight and stop blaming kondor. He didn't do anything wrong, he just makes good antennas. If there were regs coming down regarding antennas themselves then you might have a case here, but there aren't, so you don't. I'm not saying I think this was the best location for a flight but for cryin' out loud, kondor is not the one to blame here.
