The Triple Feed Patch Array antenna is a directional circularly polarized antenna based on the original Triple Feed Patch antenna. It uses an array of seven coupled patches to achieve significantly higher gain. Since the beam width is quite narrow, this antenna is not recommended for general FPV, but it performs very well for long-range flights.

* Good Radiation efficiency. Most FR4-based patches are very efficient because FR4 is very lossy at 5.8 GHz. In addition, most array antennas have higher losses in the feed network. This design uses coupled patches to keep the feed network simple and reduce these losses.
* Good shaft ratio, not only perpendicular to the patch but also eccentric.
