    I'm planning on getting a black pearl monitor and I wanted to put a helical antenna on it along with another decent antenna (I'm thinking the RC Immersion/FatShark antennas for normal RX/TX.)

    The helicals I am interested in is Ibcrazy 5 turn $49 or Circular Wireless 8 Turn normally $80+

    I'm not planning on flying miles and I probably will get nervous if it's beyond line of sight anyway. Should I stick with the Ibcrazy 5 turn or should I really spend the extra money for the 8 Turn Helical?

    As you know when building out these things every dollar can add up.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    for the price it is better ibcrazy 5 turn antenna, It is much cheaper and you can achieve 3.8 km with blue beam ultras , thats it my setup, with a boscam ts832 600mw

    Thanks for the tip. Yeah mine is on the way already from another vendor. It did seem that a few weeks ago almost everyone was sold out of them.
