Designed with the FPV racer in mind, these antennas combine small form and high durability with top-notch performance for the ultimate competitive advantage. These antennas have strengthened cables with a special low profile choke to ensure the highest axial ratio and video clarity. While they do run exposed, the antennas have a large reinforced nylon hub at the feed which will allow a racer to repeatedly bend them back to shape and fly again after many crashes.

overall happy with purchase review by William on 11/27/2016
The antenna is great as far as reception and clarity, on par with the other high end antennas i have tried in the past. I am running 3 of these on my quads. I only have one left . One fell off during flight ( make sure to check youre sma's) and the second broke off at the sma after an impact with a tree.
I only wish that these were cheaper so i could justify the cost of replacement
Good antenna, but not so strong... review by Mr.FPV Racing on 2/10/2016
I got the Airscrew because I had heard good things and 'Video Aerial Systems' have been known for good quality antennas.
My very first impression is I like the look. The antenna feels really nice with its rubbery coating. It feels like a very solid antenna.
On my first tests video quality is on the higher end of antennas I've tested. Less video interference then many I've tried.
On the first testing I landed about 5ft off the ground on a tree branch in a playground. Shaking the branch the quad fell to the wood chips below only to completely snap the antenna at the connector. I figured it would be stronger with the videos I've seen of IBCrazy with his hammer. They do provide a tutorial video for repairing them which is helpful.

All together its a pretty good antenna, just not happy mine broke on the first tests and it wasn't even from a sweet wreck...
Broke Easily review by Vikas on 1/14/2016
I was flying down on some tall grass with a slow decent and upon landing the antenna broke in half. I believe the reason why it broke was because the antenna is very stiff near the SMA connector. I wish it was more durable as I just got these in a few days ago and broke them already.
