FrSky X8R/L9R Antenna Long Spacer
3D Printed Vertical FrSky Antenna Spacer
Vertical – Long Arms – Maximum Diversity
This mount fits both the X8R and L9R receivers
This mount allows the RX to sit right behind this mount. The overall length of the mount is 115mm and 80mm high. With the antenna’s installed the arms are 130mm long and 100mm high.
The mount allows you to easily connect to the front “Smart Port”
If you require you Rx to be slightly behind this mount look at this mount it has sorter arms to allow the RX to be postioned away from the mount.
The mount is supplied with two sections of heat stink to secure the PCB antenna into their pockets and not the O rings as shown
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.
This spacer is stuck to your craft and the antenna with go up (or down) vertically from the surface it is stuck upon.
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 two 3mm screw holes in its base, so that you can also screw it down for added security.
The mount has thin slot down the length of both arm for the antenna wire to be located.
The unit weighs 10.5g
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).
The RX is not supplied in this kit its for demonstration purposes only.
