    All should perform the same. This one is nice too since it can be folded when not in use.

    I have the skyreat copper ones, prices vary dramatically even for the same design but they're all the same so find the cheapest, I found mine on amazon for £4.99, best bang for buck mod you can buy, nearly tripled my distance

    I bought an identical one on eBay for around $4.US inc shipping from China. Should get here in about 4-5wks.

    It's a battle between cost and patience. Everyone loses :)

    Personally I prefer the non fordable and I never removed it from the antennas. It goes in the RC to the back pack and I feel it protect the antennas.

    Silver or copper, they work the same. The copper just looks cooler. I prefer the folding version too, it stores easy and when installed it keeps the antenna's parallel, which helps communications efficiency.

    That's interesting. If they are physically identical they should work the same, aluminum or copper. Both of mine do. Some manufactures position the dish too close to the antenna, this is less efficient.

    The copper ones are the 2 separate ones, the Ali are the folding clamshell type, certainly for me the copper works better
