How did you go about working out the correct curve. My math has gone down hill over the years and ... I am not that smart anymore.
I did the drawing in CorelDraw, I have an utility that tells me the length of a line, so I modified a circle arc sector until it had the precise length; the shape goes by the looks-about-right formula.
I haven't tested the antennas yet because I haven't even finished them, I just put the bent wires aside and I'll wait for a new video Tx to test them on, I don't want to tear apart my FPV plane to try them just yet.
I did check the math to calculate the length of an ellipse arc sector but it required more brain power that I can muster on a Sunday afternoon.
