Hi Rf gurus, I am about to make a VTX antenna for my Tricopter and was wondering if stainless steel is ok to use instead of copper coated steel. I have s/s but I would have to go to an engineering firm to get some mig wire. I will silver solder/easy flow the joins apart from the coax to the s/s join which I will solder.
Good or bad?, welcome any comments
Thought I would take your advice X-jet on my tri video but as you will have noticed I was flying next to a steel shed which is ideal for multipath interference. I have used a 6 turn helical for a long time but never went circular on the VTX because of the size on 1010mhz but I think it is time to play around with them now. I used 1/4" copper tube for the helical
