DIY Drones part number:

Antenna 900MHz RP-SMA 2dBi

 

Antenna 433MHz RP-SMA 2dBi

 

I ordered two of each, I just received them today, and there's no label on the packages, and they look absolutely identical.

 

There is a blue dot on two of them, and there's not a blue dot on two of them.

 

Anybody know which is which?

 

Anybody know what would happen if you use the 900 antenna on a 433 mghz 3dr?

 

Thanks,

 

Dan Gray

  • Hi,

    I ordered two 3DR modules 433 Mhz with antennas from RCT and due to bad performance I changed this antennas to a 2.4 Ghz one.

    In 3DR Config Tool I noticed no difference in RSSI and noise value.

    So for further investigatin I made a X-Ray from both 433 Mhz antennas and the 2,4 Ghz one.

    I was surprised, that I could not see any difference between this antennas.

    Looking at the dimensins of all three antennas, they should be all lambda/4 Dipols for 2,4 Ghz.

    Maybe anybody can comment this...

     

    Regards,

    Andreas.

  • Hi Dan, the 433MHz antennas have a blue dot on them, 915MHz antennas do not.

  • My 433 antennas both have a blue dot on them, so that may be the identifier. I don't not have a set of 900 to compare to however, so I am not positive, just seem likely to me.

"Wow, Ning2 looks really great on mobile. I had sort of drifted away as my browse-time went more on my phone, so this is great."
