    I have enjoyed my x-hair all summer long and thought I would add my own Kudos to the thread. The beam width is sufficiently wide that I am going to try it with my head tracker goggles. I realize I will need to reset center on the goggles from time to time, but from my experience with it so far I am expecting this to work.


    On my wishlist: goggles with built-in diversity. With an Omni and x-hair of course!

    I tested this antenna yesterday and had picture 8.5 km on my AIO googles! 1W vtx on a FPV raptor.
    Very happy with it

    The crosshair 5.8!

    Just wanted to post a note about my antenna SWR tests with my IRC Powermeter. Out of all my antennae, the two TRC 5.8 Crosshairs tested better than all the others I have. Considering the complexity of building the Crosshairs in this size, Hugo is a remarkable craftsman with incredible skill. (Lower is better)

    3.482 Circular Wireless 4-lobe

    2.215 Bluebeam Mad Mushroom

    2.097 TrueRC Horizon

    1.666 Bluebeam SPW 4-lobe

    1.567 IRC 4-lobe Spironet

    1.368 IRC 3-lobe Spironet

    1.367 TrueRC Crosshair 1

    1.312 Fatshark whip

    1.248 TrueRC Crosshair 2

    I picked up one of these for use with goggles in March of 2014 from RMRC. Worked really well and liked it a lot. However recently it just quit working. When I shake it I can clearly hear something loose and rattling around inside the plastic shield.

    So my question is, is there any chance of me opening up the plastic and resoldering whatever came loose? Or is the tuning on these so critical that I should just toss it and get a new one?

    Sorry for that. Around sept. 14 I switched from wire elements to PCB. Heat the back until the glue melt and remove the cover, take a pic and send to hugochamb@hotmail.com along with your shipping address

    I have no doubt that the quads RC rx will be much affected because it uses FHSS.

    the messed up channels.
    I think I just have to test this in the field when its the time to do so.
    At the moment I am building the carrier plane and have to get this all working first.
    And its time now to start my own thread about this, as I dont want to get too offtopic here

    regards Julian
    I gotta see this love the concept
