    Very nice pictures. She did a good job.

    I notice your 5.8 dipole antenna's are pointing inward on both sides. Is this something you did on purpose to try to keep them perpendicular to your controller to gain range?

    To be quite honest, that's how the antenna has been since I bought it. I just assumed it as supposed to be that way!

    I would go with the fact you have done scientific testing and you can get 3.82 miles distance by doing that.

    Next thing you know every user on the forum will have them setup the same way.
