Description

Incorporating some revolutionary concepts in antenna design, the Tomahawk Backfire antenna is a high gain, wide angle antenna draws from radar technology to optimise its performance. In doing so the Tomahawk backfire squeezes maximum performance into a unit less than half the size of similar antenna whilst maintaining an incredible 175° horizontal and 60° vertical fields.

Lightweight and headset-mountable, the Tomahawk backfire can breathe new life into your 5.8GHz FPV gear, giving it a huge boost in range. 

Note: This antenna will work with both left hand and right hand circular polarised antennas.

It works... but a few caveats. It works equally well with LHCP and RHCP vtx antennas. However I can see some noise in the video. Not enough to prevent you from flying. I immediately switched to my old 3dbi TBS RHCP rx antenna and the noise went away. I didn't do a range test so not sure if this antenna lets me go farther, but for close in 250 racing if you can put up with the noise the good thing is it doesn't matter if the vtx is LH or RH.

It's nice with the thicker antenna wire (rg402?). I can feel the weight on my goggles vs the tbs patch.

The beam width is good, didn't have to move my head. Overall decent but with some noise.
