The Ion antenna is a high gain Circularly Polarized omnidirectional antenna with near perfect axial ratio. The Ion’s compact size and light weight make it ideal for those who want a small antenna without sacrificing performance. The Ion is the highest gain, non-phased/stacked, omnidirectional 5.8GHz antenna on the market today. Whether used as a transmit or receiver antenna, the Ion will provide excellent video.
VAS went to great lengths to design the next great antenna for FPV operators the world over. The Patent Pending technology utilized in the Ion is a result of 6 months of design and development that allows VAS to provide the user a durable, high performance antenna at an affordable price. Assembled in the Video Aerial Systems manufacturing facility located in Virginia, USA from parts acquired in the US and abroad, the Ion antenna is put through the most rigorous testing of any antenna on the market. Each antenna is tested no less than 4 times during the manufacturing process, for both Axial ratio and VSWR to ensure the antenna leaves the production floor at its peak performance level. The Ion is then subjected to our strict Quality Control team’s scrutiny.
Part Number: ION-5G8-R
I’ve flown AXII’s and TBS Triumphs for the last year+. This past spring I was given a chance to fly a prototype of the Ion, and what a difference! I’ve since started using it on my goggles as a RX antenna. Hands down the best omni I’ve used so far. Alex nailed this one!
Awesome RX Antenna!
All I can say is wow compared to the AXII for a RX antenna! This baby goes far. I tried it as a TX antenna and had some fade where my AXII and TBS weren't fine!
I've flow aomway, dipole and pagoda antennas. I got to fly a pre production ion. The difference was huge! Spots where my old antennas would be static, the ion is perfectly clear. Worth the hype. Clear signal has made flying fun again.
