Omni-Directional 5.8GHz Articulated SMA "Rubber Ducky" Antenna - Linear
Used to be everyone had a pile of these laying around. If you're flying a linear dipole on your whoop and wondering where your old rubber ducky flew off to, we've got you covered! NewBeeDrone explains it simply in their Honey Patch listing:
"If you are using a linear whip antenna on your micro quad and using a circular antenna to receive you would be experiencing a 3db loss due to the mixed polarization signals, for each 3db drop in signal that is a half in power so effectively your 25mW vtx will only be seen as transmitting 12.5mW."
Just a simple linear omni antenna, these work great when paired with a linear patch like the NewbeeDrone Honey Patch or the Menace Bandicoot on your diversity module.
The downside of linear polarization is its susceptibility to multi-path interference. Locations with lots of metal and hard surfaces will tend to reflect lots of RF causing a noisy FPV feed. The ImmersionRC Rapidfire module is terrific at handling this type of interference.
