    I have on the way a Boscam T351 along with the Boscam 5802 receiver. I don't need to fly super far, have no need to go 1 km or anything. From reading here it seems I may get around 200m. If I want to upgrade the antenna a bit any advice? I am real confused on all different antenna lingo. I see cloverleaf, helical, spironet, patch.... What is the difference? If I want to upgrade the antenna without a huge cost is there something that makes sense?
    Also, I believe the Boscam will need RHCP. Anything else I need to check for?
    Thank you.

    I saw a youtube video of a guy fly 2km away with just the regular stick antennas that comes stock on these things. Had me wondering when the aftermarket antennas are really needed. I might go find out this weekend. :?
