That's a really cool quad. I never thought about using those double axii antennas for DJI. If you want them to be most effective, make sure you bend them at 90 degrees from each other and roughly 45 degrees from the horizon, depending on average forward flight angle. Based on the photos, you'll have a null zone directly behind the quad, so you'll minimize signal strength as you fly away from yourself. Nice work.

Unless you fly REALLY fast you should bend those antenna up a bit Otherwhise, you are kind of wasting those expensive antennas xD

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
