Hi
I need your technical expertise. I am a newbie to quad racing and I use my DJI RE (racing edition) goggles' analog mode to fly my tiny whoops. A friend recommended the Video Aerial Systems VAS Mad Mushroom V2 5.8GHz SMA Antenna - RHCP or LHCP to put on these goggles. Alas, the antenna could not fit the goggles. So I ordered a RF RP-SMA Male to SMA Female Adapter but this is not the correct adapter. I emailed GetFPV for advice and this is what they (very kindly) replied:

This is the first time I've looked into this - I'm pretty surprised by this.
They've made this intentionally difficult by going against the standard of threads inside for antennas, and threads outside for the device.
You'll need an adapter we don't stock - basically externally threaded at both ends, and with a pin on one side, and a hole on the other.
This may exist, but we don't stock it. You may find it mentioned in a DJI forum online, or in the thread going for these goggles on RCGroups.com.


Could you help me locate the correct adapter?
Thanks a lot!

can you post pictures of the two ends you want to connect?
I am not finding the mentioned adapter either.
yes, of course.

here they are:

1) this is the antenna slot for the DJI RE goggles:

9832

the DJI manual says that this is a "SMA Antenna Port".

Here are my antennas:

9833

On the left is the "Pagoda" antenna shipped by DJI which matches the SMA antenna port
On the left is the antenna I need to place on my goggles: a Video Aerial Systems VAS Mad Mushroom V2 5.8GHz SMAAntenna - RHCP or LHCP × 1

Any help to connect my antenna to my DJI googles would be most appreciated!

Kind regards and many thanks!

Your link did not resolve, but I think this is the one you had in mind, right?


There is also this one: RP-SMA Female Plug Male Pin to SMA Female RF Straight Coaxial Connector Adapter | eBay

So I ordered them both today, thank you so much!!

This stinks.
I cannot see anything from any of those links for some reason.
Takes me to the front page.
But the title matches the one I posted.
So long as the pictures show outside threads on both sides, pin on one side and hole on the other that is the correct part.
