I take it a Patch Antenna will also benefit being higher up, for a greater opportunity to have LOS of the plane with no ground obstructions? Hence why you see them mounted at the top of masts - however, contradicting info people have posted here, where its best close to the ground!
It's good close to the ground when flying close in.
Mounting the patch close to the ground helps to avoid multipath reception.
