    Hi Hugo,
    I am still very interested in purchasing this antenna and, and with the recent sale of some nitro gear I have the funds that are now burning a hole in my pocket. J
    Depending on flight, currently choose between the 1.3ghz IBC pepperbox or 1.3ghz TRC horizon stacked fan antennas but really like the increased penetration factor the Gatling has to offer (I enjoy more low altitude flying with my quad around and through trees/landscaping). My concern however is that the advertised beam width on the Gatling is 62 degree verses the Pepperbox at 145 degrees. Knowing that, would the Gatling antenna be something I am continually aiming during flight (manually) if I generally fly out in front of myself (within peripheral view) in closer proximity (50-200 yards).
    Also, would the Gatling and Pepperbox or Gatling and Stacked fan combo play nice together if on an Eagle Tree diversity? I read that CP antennas make it difficult for the diversity controller to select the preferred signal but seeing as the Gatling and Pepperbox appear to be more forward signal projected, would this still be a problem?
    Also always, your expertise and knowledge are greatly appreciated.

    50-200 yards? I use a 200mw 1258mhz transmitter and a crosshair for flying behind trees, buildings, small hills... the gatling is better for medium range proximity (flying out a mile and dropping in) or just long range in general...

    and no... Eagle Tree does not like CP's in diversity... I have a mad mushroom and a Crosshair and eagle eyes is constantly switching... Just get the pepperbox or crosshair and you are set. The gatling is an epic antenna, just will give you too narrow of a beam for close proximity. It should work but you will be flying out of the beam a lot.

    The Gatling is meant to be used with tracker, unless your flight consist of a "target" like reaching a mountain, an island, an asteroid...
    I had no problem with ET diversity, but been a while I haven't used it.

    Nowhere, if you back-order one on my website, it should take 3 weeks to ship at most.

    Is this the deal with all out of stock things on your website? I see you sell the matching network for 2 and 4 antennas, will this work with any 2 or 4 identical antennas?

    Oh snap, forgot the price tag on that beast! So what antenna should I install on my plane for best results? Somehow I don't think the lawmate rubber duck will play well anymore with the Gatlin.
