Sounds like my camera op in training.. He's new to this stuff but this is one of the hardest thing to drill into him.. oh well he is great on the sticks.My Camera Op keep complaining about poor signal and I keep looking at him and stating the same thing over and over, fix your antennas so they are straight up and down and parallel to each other as well as the flat side pointing at the copter. And he keeps saying, oh ya, that fixed the issue
I believe it's straight "up" not "out". Flat part pointing out towards quad.Soooo, just to be sure I understand, you guys are saying that the antenna should be unfolded completely, so that they are pointing straight out with no bend in them and basically the flat sides are then pointing straight up? Is this correct?
You just need them vertical. So straight up and in the 45° detent that is conveniently built in to compensate for the angle you'll likely be holding the radio at (and it clears them from the tablet).Jeez somebody just post a photo of how the antennas should be oriented.
Ummmmm...bit of a necro thread this one - 15 months old.Checkout the Inspire 1 Quick Start Guide (page 7, item 5), it shows how to use them for maximum signal strength. Please read all manuals before flying. http://download.dji-innovations.com/downloads/inspire_1/en/Inspire_1_Quick_Start_Guide_en.pdf

However,can't argue with telling people to RTFM before doing anything.
Will people listen though?.........
