    Hi everyone,

    I ordered from Helipal with my Phantom 2 their FPV kit Deluxe. The transmitter is the TS-352 and the receptor is integrated in the display, a BOSCAM RX-LCD5802.

    Helipal suggest for that kit to upgrade to clover leaf antennas, but they have many models and it not clear which one is really the best.

    I was wondering if someone can recommend me what to choose between clover leaf, mushroom, cloud spirit or flat panel antennas. Is the flat panel only for long range reception and all the others just for blind spot prevention?

    Since my monitor have two antennas, should I put 2 same class antennas or could I mix a clover leaf and a flat panel antenna?

    Thanks.

    Hi, what you need is a cobo set 5.8, that has 2 pinwheels + a 4.25 turns helix, you install the 4.25 turns and 1 pinwheel on the monitor, and one pinwheel on the copter.
    you can get them @ http://fpvlr.com..pricey but worth it the long run
