    ??? Pro/con powered by phantom vs 450mAh battery? Where would you mount the battery?

    ??? Will this antenna work with above kit. Seems less susceptible to damage.

    that's sort of what I have but I imagine you'll need to get better aerials than those whips. (immersion do some - I got mine from first person view)
