This is the reason it was recommended in teh past by Schrerrer (and probably others) to use a CP antenna as Vrx and linear one the plane (for convenience and since CP Vtx are rare) unless going for maximum distance, since in hard banking you do nt approach a huge dbi loss, just 3.
No, I'll search for that though...thanks.

Found the thread. Thanks, I'll take a read through it.
