Attention: RC-CAM.com will be closing down August 2021.

The RC-Cam.com forum was the very first online community dedicated to the advancement of wireless video cameras on radio controlled (R/C) models. This is now called "FPV" (First Person View). We are proud of the contributions that our members have made to the FPV hobby.

We've seen significant changes over the last twenty years. Initially there were a lot of eager R/C hobbyist that built their own video systems. Allowing these creative individuals to share their work was the purpose of this site. Now the FPV market is flooded with low cost systems; Sadly DiY FPV video projects are now rarely discussed.

RC-CAM.com (main site and forum) will be closing down August 2021. This is being announced now (March 2021) so that everyone has time to download any information that is important to them. After the site is shutdown the information will no longer be available here.

We appreciate every member's involvement with advancing the FPV hobby. It is indeed sad to say goodbye to all our online friends. Be safe and stay healthy.

Hi there,

I recently bought a 2.4GHz booster (amplifier) for my Flysky FS-T6 which has one antenna.  Looking now at the newer Flysky transmitters like the Flysky FS-T6 & Flysky FS-T6S I notice they have two antennas.  Will a single booster work with a dual antenna transmitter?  Can I attach it to just one antenna, leaving the other un-amplified?

Booster (amplifier) link:

If not, will this also work as a second booster?

Thanks very much in advance

It does not seem likely that both radio (handheld controller) antennas are used for transmitting. I would expect that the dual aerials are for diversity receive of the model's telemetry data, while only one is used to transmit R/C servo data.

You could prove this by shielding (or removing) one antenna and checking R/C range. Then shield the other antenna and repeat the test. If only one antenna is affected then that's the only one that is used for transmit.
