    It is not good unless you also have a similar one on the receive end.

    You will see several dB loss due to polarization differences.

    IIRC there's two on the Phantom 2. They are located in the vertical sections of the gear diagonally separated.

    I have not done any mods to a P2 so hopefully someone else will chime in for you.

    I would not use that antenna on my controller.

    There are some wonderful threads discussing controller mods in this forum: Phantom 2 Vision + Mods
