Setting up the antenna

Adjusting the antenna:

While many of these usually have the radiator 90 degrees from the ground plane, in many cases a slightly greater angle is desirable. As the angle opens up, the gain drops and directs the pattern more outward. I find that 100-120 degrees is most desirable. This allows me to have the antenna mounted on a not flat surface as well as gives me a bit better low altitude resolution.

If you have a Quadcopter, this antenna will do very well if mounted upsidedown with a 120 degree angle on the elements.
