Why not a cheap Ubiquiti AC mesh or AC mesh pro?

Is the Ubiquiti UniFi UAP-AC-M 802.11ac Mesh a good option?  It looks like a good candidate for pole/mic stand mounting, whereas the Ubiquiti "flying saucer" WAPs look like they would be harder to deploy for portable use.

Depending on the expected area of coverage, I'd say yes. Ticks all the marks: cheap, good range/coverage, looks nice, etc.

I have that exact model sitting here and it will not run instant alone mode, as far as I can tell. It requires one of the flying saucer WAPs to mesh with.

I was not impressed.

That's odd; I just deployed one as the only WAP on an audio network and it's been flawless. Setup using the UniFi software was exactly the same as the flying saucers from what I recall.

Yeah, that's really strange.

You actually have to force it to run in mesh mode. It defaults to standard AP mode.

I'll try again but I could not figure out how to get it out of mesh mode and into AP mode. It's been a while but I want to say bunt wouldn't support me on this.

Nathan, I think the opposite is true and I can't figure out how to make the AC mesh run in AP mode.

Should help a bit. ~14:50 mark

Now the AirMax stuff isn't designed for AP's only for bridging networks. I have a nanostation that confused me for a while. Old firmware allows for AP usage,  but the unifi stuff should work just fine.

Thanks.

Is it wrong that driven to distraction by the audio in that video?

 ;D no?

Though I'm not noticing anything, maybe due to the tiny speakers on my laptop?

I have one also in AP mode up 12 on a tripod.

I had to turn off a parameter something like uplink monitor to make it work. I read that here somewhere. It fixed my problem.
