The popularity of this product could not be overstated. This new V2 has been tuned by TBS engineers for improved signal and uses thinner aircraft steel cable for reduced weight. You will NOT find the V2 antenna anywhere but at FPVCycle. If seen elsewhere, it is a fake copy.
This antenna is manufactured by TBS and this specific variation is only made for FPVCycle. It is designed to be small, light, and easy to use however you cannot expect full range from this antenna. You cannot even expect quarter range with this antenna. Extreme range is not what this antenna is intended for. It’s intended for close range applications such as racing, Toothpicks, super Whoops and other small crafts. This is still Crossfire however so even with this tiny antenna, ‘short’ range is not very short. We've gone a few kilometers but the intended range is generally within a kilometer.
The quality of this antenna is supreme. The active elements are made of the same durable wire as the actual Immortal T but just a bit thinner to save weight. The rubber center of the Immortal T has been removed to save weight and the center is wrapped in two pieces of heat shrink. Yes there is a small gap between the two pieces of shrink. Take care not to have this riding up against a carbon frame.

Perfect for the babytooth and the build which it was designed for.
Might not have as much range as immortal T or crossfire whip antenna, but its great for my 3" Tadpole. I really only fly proximity though so its perfect for me.
Little antenna works just like it should ,perfect
They're the perfect size and weight for whoops through toothpicks. I haven't range tested them but I've had no problems going as far as I'm willing to take something so small, around a few hundred yards. They're just what CRSF needed.
Works great.. The heatshrink at the t junction comes off real easy. I now add a coating of liquid electrical tape to the antenna before mounting
