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.
My current antennas are made for the 5705 band. Since I am pushing the distance I can really feel that they are not near channel 8. I am thinking of making some at for that channel.
