    It looks like the "Bluebeam" antenna is just a brand name. Basically it is a spironet, or clover leaf antenna. not much
    chance it would be any better, just more expensive.

    Maybe it comes with "Ginzu Knives" :D

    If you remove the dome cover off the Spironet, then you will see something exactly like the BlueBeam. ;)

    I don't think it will improve the range, especially if it gets bent out of the shape it is in.

    Plastic will not interfere with the transmitting wave or receiving strength and that's why our Phantom has plastic shell covered the GPS. The plastic dome is there for protection from damages by accidents.
    The orientation of the RX antenna in corresponding with the TX's is the key for best reception.
    In general they should be in parallel.
