    Hi

    What is the difference between these two setup? Can someone provide some comparison / analysis? Both of these are pilot end changes only.

    Linear vs circular polarized
    I'd suggest fpvlr
    Just my preference
    Linear will not work as well as circular but they will work it all depends on how far you want to fly
    And how dependable you want that signal to be
    THe tp link are high gain onmi antenna and the signal comes off like a flat donut so a lot of area is not covered

    Do you have the link to the 2.4 and the 5.8 Ghz antenna that you recommend?

    So many of these antenna choices, I am a bit confused.

    I like that I don't have to aim very accurately, however, some of the comments for these LHCP type seems to suggest you still have to "aim". What gives?

    I have not really thought about it. I guess I am just getting some info so when I do run into situation where signals are getting cut out, I would know what can be done.

    Truth be told, I have not work up enough courage to really fly the P2V out too far. SO far I've manage to get it up 500 feet straight up and maybe 300 feet out on the far end?

    Yeah the Horizon antennas seem to work well for people, they just don't have a higher end fit and finish to them like an antenna from Circular Wireless, or FPVLR.
