    It's technical specs of the antenna. I posted it for the other tech gurus on here to analyze and come up with a game plan. For instance, by knowing the specs of the antenna, we know where and how the waves aim, how strong the waves are, and how sensitive it is to certain ranges of interference.

    Like by analyzing another team's games, we can plan our defense.

    I periodically search "karma drone", then filter under condition for "parts-not working". I then click on the item, scroll down to the seller and click "seller's other items" *not* "items for sale". Once the screen shows the "seller's other items" I search for "gopro" beside the seller's name.

    This is the only way I have found additional items. I believe they purposely list the item in a way the company won't easily find things from their development department. LOL
    This one has two Hero5 with two buttons on the side! Obviously a mutant, never seen the light of day. Haha.

    I'm not sure what's being said here.

    One one hand, the antennae pictured are in the controller and appear to relate to the controller-drone communications. The next set of links relate to GPS antennae for positioning.

    Are they related? They seem to be discussing different parts (and therefore different problems).

    Basically, finally seeing what antennas they give us in the controller (and the spec sheet), we can now formulate an understanding of how our drone communicates and maybe find some workarounds.

    For instance, if you have a directional antenna for a drone, you need to be facing the drone at all times -- otherwise you may lose signal.

    Knowing an antenna's pitfalls will hopefully help us not have as many problems.
