    What vTx do you have? Make sure you get the correct connector. Fatshark / Immersion use SMA. Boscam / DJI use RP-SMA.
    No opinion on those really. I made my own but any of those look fine.

    Sorry. Getting all Boscam. And the connections look like they will work. LCD5802 Monitor with built-in diversity receiver and Boscam 400mw tx.

    Another question: Is it necessary to replace both antennas on the rx? If so should I get different types? Thx

    Ideally you will use a cloverleaf / skew-planar and a patch on your diversity at the same time. This enables you to cover all the bases with the diverse receiving qualities of the cloverleaf and high-gain but directional nature of the patch.

    Would love a review of those if you get a chance.
