First of all I want to apologize if any of my terminology is off or if I ask obvious questions, I'm only a beginner at this and am just trying to learn as much as possible on the hobby!
I am planning on building my own ground station. One of my main goals is to have the longest connection range with my drone possible. I have been looking at the different types of antennas that I could possibly use and have concluded that most people are using patch, yagi, or grid antennas.
Now for my questions...
1. What type of antennas have you found to work best for your long range journeys, and why?
2. What model antenna was it and have you experienced any problems with it?
3. Are there any other important components that you would recommend for my ground station in order to increase my range of communication with my drone?
Any information would be greatly appreciated, even if it is not that relevant to the topic! I'm just trying to expand my knowledge!
Thank you in advance!
