An AXII 5.8GHz antenna with a flexible coax that neatly exit the side of the case, terminated by a mmcx connector.
The TrueRC AXII 5.8GHz Antenna makes a giant leap forward in FPV antenna technology. TrueRC Canada brings you one of the smallest, lightest and best performing FPV antennas in the world. The AXII antenna is an original design that features a new RF pathway technology (unique hybrid network) allowing it to be incredibly light weight and less than half the size of most other 5.8GHz CP antennas.
Even though the AXII is both small and light weight, it does not sacrifice any performance. In fact it out performs most other antennas in all categories. Precision engineering has given this antenna a near perfect 1.0 Axial ratio resulting in a true circularity. On top of that the AXII has a high max gain of 1.6dBic enabling better range and penetration. It has a wide bandwidth covering the popular FPV 5GHz band from 5.5GHz-6.0GHz, ensuring you have a clear and strong signal no matter which frequency you’re on.
- Gain: 1.6dbic
- Axial ratio: 1.0 (near perfect)
- Bandwidth: 5.5GHz-6.0GHz
- Weight: 2.0g
- Size: 80mm x 16mm
- Cable: Flexible RG178
- Connector: MMCX90 (Fit DJI’s air unit)

Please disregard my review above. Apparently NBD was having trouble receiving email from me. I contacted them through their FB page and got things straightened out.
As a customer, be sure that you understand what you are buying. I saw the product photo of this side feed antenna on their website that showed a straight MMCX connector, but after my initial review, I realized that the spec text listed it as a 90° connector. I made the purchase based on the photo, but what arrived was a 90° connector. Always double check all information provided, and if in doubt, contact the vendor.
As for NBD’s customer service, once I was able to communicate with them, they offered to make things right. Thank you NBD!
And lastly, I ran out of decent flying weather over the intervening two weeks, and haven’t had a chance to actually test the antenna in the air.
Disappointed not with the product, but with NBD customer service. They picked the wrong part and sent one that I cannot use. After three emails to their support email address over the past two weeks, I haven’t received any response from them. I’ll edit this rating if they ever get back to me, correct their mistake and replace the part with one that I can actually use.
