FrSky X8R/L9R Antenna Spacer
3D Printed Horizontal FrSky Antenna Holder
This mount fits both the X8R and L9R receivers
This antenna spacer does a couple of things.
It holds the antenna at 45 degree to each other and it also holds the antenna at 90 degree to each other for maximum diversity.
The reason the RX is not inside the case is that it allows you to position your RX slightly inside your frame for protection.
Simply used a good quality double sided foam tape (not supplied) to stick the antenna holder in position. Ensure that you roughen up the underside of the antenna mount and the surface you are sticking it too, the surface must also be free from all grease, dirt and dust. Once it is stuck on test the security of the mount.
The Mount also has 2No. 3mm holes in the base so that you can bolt it down onto your frame. This was a feature asked for by the long range flyers to ensure that the antenna mount stays permanently fixed to the frame. (fixing bots not supplied with the mount)
The mount has thing slot down the length of both arm for the antenna wire to be located.
Should any of the PCB antenna not fit tightly use use a piece of electrical tape or similar down the side of the PCB antenna.
The O rings are used to hold the antenna in securely, you are supplied with 3 in the kit. (yes you get a spare one)
The unit weighs 8g with the O rings
This is a 3D printed part and as such the surfaces are not totally flat or without very slight imperfection (though the quality is very good). It is printed in ColorFab XT which is a cross between PLA and ABS
The RX is not supplied in this kit its for demonstration purposes only
