    Personally, I'd go with the patch because it's more directional than the others. But it kinda depends on how you fly and what kind of aiming you're willing to do...

    And btw what patch are you talking about? There's not a lot of 5.8 patch antennas out there ...

    I think you did great. Experiment with it and see if it fits your needs. It depends on the kind of flying you do. Range wise, you will need to aim it very carefully, both horizontally and vertically, if you really want to max the range. If you need more range, then an amp would help, of course.

    Good luck and have fun!
