Not sure if its good or not, but with the dipoles i was able to get about 300 feet. Now I can get 500 feet.

I attached a map to show my environment.

The camera/TX is mounted on a 1/10th scale car. So I am hoping once the TX is on a plane, I will get out a bit farther. Am I correct to think range will increase in the air?
I use these on my 5.8ghz 200mw system and easily get 1km with a clear picture. I have flown them out to 3km (9000 feet). If you can build these you can also build yourself a 4 turn helical for extra range.
