Works best at 868mhz. Also works fine at 916mhz
Designed by : Michael Anderson
Made by TBS, the same place that manufactures the Crossfire and all TBS antennas. This specific variation is only made for FPVCycle and designed to be small, light, and easy to use. You CANNOT expect full range from this antenna. In fact, you cannot even expect half range with this antenna. That is NOT its purpose. It’s intended for Toothpicks, micros and super Whoops. Many 5" racers would likely prefer this as well as it is very light and easier to use than some other options.
The quality of this antenna is supreme. The active elements are made of the same thick and super durable wire as the Immortal T. It’s simply fantastic. You will appreciate it when you feel it.
- Designed for 915mhz but works fine on 868mhz too
- Weight: 0.9g
- NOT designed by TBS
- MADE by TBS
- ~40mm stem
- ~55mm wide top segment (not RF elements)
- Works great with the TBS Crossfire Nano Rx
More about this antenna:
This antenna is made by TBS but they will deny making it because their engineers do not recognize it’s existence.
Crossfire is a beautiful protocol that is robust and reliable. They have spent endless dollars and hours refining this amazing protocol. This particular antenna design poops on all of that. BUT, We typically do not need to go 40km away. This antenna will NOT give you full range. In fact, on the 100mw baby Crossfire, we would not even recommend beyond 2km (even though we’ve gone FAR beyond that ourselves on 100mw).
The point of this antenna is to be light and easy to use. There is a PCB or sticker antenna product out there too but that is actually a little bigger and has specific requirements for how it should be used. The reason TBS went from the typical whip antenna to the Immortal T in the first place is because people were folding up and stringing the whip along the carbon arms of their frames. The Immortal T is great because it’s hard to screw up using it. Wherever you place it, you’ll at least get good performance. This antenna is like that. It’s got a short stem, low weight and wherever you put it, you’ll get at least acceptable performance. Give it just a little thought and effort to get it out of the path of radio obstructive bits and the performance is hard to tell apart from the full size Immortal T in 'short' range use.
The Mini T is what you want on something smaller than 5". Being smaller, makes it much easier to mount and better protects the antenna from damage. The only downside is range. You won't get the 10km range of the fullsize T antenna, but I've flown mine 300m away and maintained high LQ/RSSI. Using this antenna is no worries for 99% of us.
Appropriately sized antenna for more confidence when flying further away on a TP3 build
Love using these for lightweight builds. Obviously the range isn’t going to match a full size immortal-t but it’s perfectly adequate for how far I’m comfortable flying any micro.
awesome for my tp3/babytooth.. have had to put more durable heat shrink but overall really happy that this product exists.
