Possibly we could still gain some extra range, if we implement directly on the PCB of the antenna a decent low noise amplifier stage and maybe small 5.8ghz BPF behind.

I assume based on the low price of our RX modules, the input stages probably not very decent lna....The first stages of RX is most important.

Will make the antenna more expensive and need little bit of power, but like to try it...

It will definitely shift the center frequency LOL since when determined PLA or ABS the center frequency Maarten Baert I would like gladly times a field strength test of ABS or PLA from you see which you can send me gladly to info@FPV-BRAIN.net then you may not synonymous PCB More paint. :-)

Hello Maarten, and congratulations for the great software! I installed it via the AUR (ArchLinux) and it automatically uses the Greek language, which I'd like to change. Is there any config file I could edit, or any other ways of changing the language to English? many thanks for your time.

I'm not to good at understanding the graphs. What is the radiation pattern? When pointing the antenna straight ahead is it basically 55° verticle and horizontal? What makes them better than say a crosshair? I am asking not to bust your chops. I love the Pagodas and are the only antenna I use. I picked this up and want to know what it would be ideal to use for... Thanks

I have the same problem on F24 and I found out what it is. I have a banner at the top and bottom of my Screen. If I go to 'tweak-tool' and turn off the bottom taskbar (banner) I see the Continue etc and can run the program. If I do not do this I cannot even get it started. Maybe if some empty lines followed the Continue line so the banner would not cover the Actionable Buttons, it would solve this problem. I guess it is a Gnome issue but I think it could be overcome by adding a few 'Blank Lines' to the Applications Windows. I want desperately to use this app, as I have seen great comments on Youtube from users, but I do not want to turn these banners off every time. i see on your Screen Shot and you do not have a bottom Banner but I think if you, temporarily, turn off your top one you will be able to see the Continue line. YMMV.

Hi Maarten,
When you mention using the surface mount SMC connectors for performance reasons, what kind of performance degradation would you expect if you used the PCB mount connectors with longer legs?

Hi! I'd like buy this great designed antenna. But have a question: can I use a cheap 50 ohm SMA dummy load from ebay or aliexpress. My biggest problem is this dummy loads specified only 3 GHz.

Where do you put the heat shrink though? The banggood pagodas are shipped with a protective rubber on the 3 rings, that might be enough to shift the frequency down a bit?

Hi Marten,
I saw that you can eliminate one of the pcb's and have the performance of a regular coverleaf my question is which pcb? is it the small one?

Thanks

Hi, when using triple feed patch antenna, do I still have to use diversity module?
Or if I'll use diversity module, which can I pair with triple feed patch antenna?
Thanks

I have the application but I can't use it due to windows size. Take a look at print screen:

I can't change the windows size, my screen resolution is on maximum, I try different size but same issue.
This is my configurations:
Fedora 26 64bit

Hi! Among the other things Windows 10 doesn't like about Model Creator (I've found Windows XP Service Pack 3 works best for compatibility mode), I've been having an issue where I can't open or save any model files thanks to a "make sure you have read access to the folder" error. Any idea what to do about this?

Hi Maarten, I want to create a DVD from a file made with Simple Screen Recorder. Which DVD burning software would you suggest and what would the Simple Screen Recorder codec settings need to be I want to play the DVD on a Windows PC. This Windows PC will probably not have VLC or any after market software installed.

Thanks ! I've been using your software for several years now and am very glad to have it installed on my Ubuntu system.

Best Regards,
RDL

Hello Maarten, do you think a PCB with 0.8mm with 0.5 oz of cooper will be a problem?

Yes. This design is made for 1mm FR4 and will not work properly with anything else.

Quote: Rodyparker

other question, the top pcb has to be 2 layers also?

Not strictly required, but for physical strength it helps a lot to have solder pads on both sides.

Thank you very musch for the answer, I'm doing a prototype in home with the right board and I also ask to elecrow some pieces.

Thanks again Maarten!

Far Vew finally got their version up and on!
They include an extension with either SMA or RP-SMA and also include a 50ohm dummy load.

Hello! Tried to record my desktop on Gnome manjaro 17 or solus budgie and keep non seeing the menus open ( whatever the program is) I only see the desktop and the cursor moving : as soon as i open a window I can't see it even if open!!

Its works correctly on Mint but not on manjaro 17 or solus Budgie

Have you got a solution?

Tks a lot

Are you using the Wayland version of Gnome? In that case it won't work, Wayland doesn't support screen capturing. It could also be a problem with the window manager - this seems to happen with Gnome for some people, but not everyone. Sadly it is not something I can fix.

SimpleScreenRecorder is by far the best screen recorder I have used including those on Windows. I am running it on Linux Mint and it just works wonderfully and it is so fast. It is a pleasure to use,
Thank you for creating SimpleScreenRecorder. I know it was a great deal of work and often you hear more about the problems. Just wanted to send a message of encouragement and appreciation for making the world (and Linux) a better place !

That's nice to hear :). I'm glad you like it.
