Why bother building your own?

Why bother building my own antenna?

There are a few reasons for doing this:
1. You can build an antenna to suit your application better
2. You can build a better matched antenna for better efficiency
3. General satisfaction
4. Better fit to the airplane
5. Lighter and more durable antennas are possible.
6. Less servo jitter
7. Faster GPS lock (if using GPS system)
8. Longer range
9. Cooler VTX unit
