Considering a build as follows:
Two (2) A5c with four (4) RF Elements Carrier Class Horns (30 Degree)
The idea is to have each Access Point with it’s two horns cover two different directions (East and West for the sake of illustration). I am considering this for the redundancy, no two horns facing the same direction will be connected to the same radio.
Dustin mentioned in this video however that not using the same direction for both antennas, you miss out on 3dB that comes with beam forming.

I’m thinking the value added with redundancy is better than 3dB with beam-forming… however I’ve never seen beam-forming in action.
