    Does anyonw know what is the polarization for the Walkera circular polarized antennas? I have been searching on the web and it seems that Walkera uses left hand polarization. I have the Devo F12E transmitter which has a circular antenna and an iLook camera and they seem to have LHCP. I also have circular RX and TX antennas from walkera for the X350 Pro drone. I am just wondering if they are all compatible and if they are LHCP or RHCP?

    Walkera exclusively use LHCP.

    Thanks for that info. I figured they used LHCP since at least some of the antennas where designated as LHCP. It's a bit annoying that most CP antennas are not labeled in any way. I hate to take apart a working antenna just to check the polarization.

    As a general "rule of thumb". No label = RHCP.

    Cheers

    So can you simply replace the stock Video TX antenna (LHCP) with something else (like TBS Triumph, Foxeer, etc..) and use RHCP? As long as both transmitting and receiving antennas are both the same you're good, right? Please advise... Thanks in advance.

    Yes that’s correct. As long as the VTX and VRX are the same circularisation you are fine.
