I'm planning to extend our WLAN for outdoor environment. due to the limited budget, I considering use some 2600e AP (mesh IOS) to achieve this goal.

As we know, MESH using 5G for backhaul and 2.4G for client access. 

So it is possible to using a direction antenna for 5G backhaul and omni antenna for client access?  Somebody had been try this configuration ?

No, as per the scenario this is not feasible using a direction antenna for 5G backhaul and omni antenna for client access.
