Another amazing creation is built by Alex Greve (IBCrazy). The new Mad Mushroom antenna design surpasses the other antenna designs for FPV flying performance. This 5.8GHz antenna is right hand circular polarized, and can be used with linearly polarized antennas (with some loss) or a more perfect match is another right hand circularly polarized antenna. Not to be used with left hand circular polarized antennas.
Includes RHCP cloverleaf antenna mounted to a 2″ (5cm) cable with integrated balun and a straight SMA male plug.
- Gain: 1.5dbic
- Axial ratio: 0.73
- Bandwidth: XX-XXMHz (It is really wide band!)
- Can be used as both transmit and receive antenna.
Some generic brands of equipment will require an RP-SMA male to SMA female adapter.

excellent for goggles review by d on 12/13/2016
This antenna is the best I have so far on my fat shark goggles for receiving from my race spec airscrew (ibxcazy) antenna.
The shell seems a bit bulky, and some people crack the shell off to make it lighter/smaller, but honestly if you throw the antenna in your bad and don't want to worry about bending it, you can leave the big shell on and not have any issues.
so far this has been performing better than the 5dbi patch antenna that I ordered, which was dissapointing for the patch antenna but I was at least glad I had this one as well. if you have fat shark goggles with the stock fat shark antenna there is no comparison, this antenna's received signal strength blows those out of the water. A must buy.
BEST ANTENNA YOU WILL EVER BUY!!! review by John on 11/30/2016
I purchased this antenna a couple of weeks ago to go along with my HD2's and the Laforge receiver module. I will tell you what, this is the best antenna ever! It receives quality a lot better than my other antennas (TBS Triumph). I did a test to see which was better. So I planned a flight around a tree to visually measure the break up in the video quality. I did get a tiny bit of fuzziness with the Triumph, but with this Mad Mushroom, it was crystal clear the entire way. I will probably never use anything other than this antenna for the rest of my life (until they come out with a v2 of the mad mushroom). This antenna is actually the best. You better get a couple as soon as you can because if you don't, you will be missing out.
Great receiver antenna. review by Carlos on 11/21/2016
My subjective experience compared to a Spironet on the goggles, is that the receive quality is a bit better (less breakup) regardless of the environment. It the best receive Omni I've used on my FatSharks and the only Omni I use on my two goggles.
