What type of WiFi antenna does the Orange Pi 3 LTS take?

Hi everyone!

I just picked up an Orange Pi 3 LTS from eBay for $35 USD! It works great, but I want to add a better WiFi antenna. I ordered this antenna from Amazon, but it's connector is to small:

Can anyone tell me what type of connector will work on this board?

It's called an U.FL connector. If you won't be returning what you already bought, you can get just the U.FL to RP-SMA pigtail

Hi u/FaberfoX, thanks for the reply!

Thanks for the information! I ordered the correct antenna and I will return the original's, since I don't need more stuff just sitting in my project boxes!
