I’ve repositioned my FPV (first person view) antenna on my hexacopter. Previously the antenna was located to the under-back of the bird and whenever the copter was facing me the video signal would be lost. After some consideration, I decided to try one of the side arms of the copter.

New FPV Antenna Placement

You can see the antenna on the right, hanging from the arm.

This has been a much better solution and my FPV video signal drops have been greatly reduced, if not eliminated. When turning around I can make sure to turn counter-clockwise and I’ll never lose the signal due to parts of the copter blocking it.
