Now you can take advantage of the rapidfire magic when flying long range. Use this mounting kit to install 2x patch or crosshair antennas for the maximum range capability of the best rx module on the market. Suggested to use 2x IRC LZR 13dbi patches or 2x TrueRC X/X2-Air crosshair antennas with this mounting kit. Antennas sold separately.
No ghosts to catch here, overlapping beams ensure that a quad at long range is easy to track, without a complex antenna tracker.
rapidFIRE’s twin RSSI display makes it trivial to locate a distant quad/plane. When the RSSI bars are equal, the antenna array is aligned exactly with the model. Much easier than trying to peak the RSSI measurement with a single antenna solution.
The wide 70 degree horizontal beam-width ensures that even when the array is not perfectly aligned with the model, reception is guaranteed.
A milled carbon-fiber plate is mounted under the Dominator fan-plate cover. Two tool-free thumbscrews attach the formed aluminium mount to the goggles. Four M3 screws mount the twin LZR 13dBi antennas to the aluminium mount, and hook up the two supplied semi-rigid high-frequency cables.
The twin RSSI bars (especially the full-width version) may be used to aim the antenna.
An upcoming firmware update (v1.3.0) will augment this with a unique audible feedback, allowing a long-range pilot to keep eyes on the target, and not the OSD.
Pointing two identical antennas using rapidFIREs RSSI bars is trivial, but a new rapidFIRE feature (available in release v1.2.7) provides audible feedback to help with antenna aiming. When pointing at the model the feedback is silent. As the antenna array drifts to the left/right, rapidFIRE will provide a gentle guidance tone to allow simple head positioning without the need to constantly monitor the OSD.
To mount the array on a set of Dominator goggles (HDO highly recommended) a milled carbon-fiber fan mount is supplied, and can be left installed, letting the antenna array be installed using two tool-free thumb-screws.
The kit includes the following parts:
2x High quality (8GHz) Coaxial cables
1x Milled carbon fiber Dominator fan mount
2x Thumb Screws
4x Fan mount screws (extended)
4x Antenna screws
1x Stamped Aluminium antenna mount
