I only had 1 coax cable so .. I tested with it mounted on the Rx.. then on the Tx.. with stock at other end..
Test only indoors... image goes in and out every now and again..
I was going to make a second but I've have to destroy one of the coax antennas to get the part..
So I guess my main question was should there be a benefit with only 1..
so far dont see it..but maybe a second attempt may show better results..
What you did is a skew planar wheel, not a clover leaf. The clover leaf is the same but with only three lobes. The antenna - from what I can see - looks nice.
Using one alone does not help. Make a cloverleaf (the one with three lobes) and use that one on the transmitter, the one you made on the reciver and you will experience a quantum leap in your video link quality.
