1.2gHz Diversity antenna choices - low/med distance/alt

I am building my first FPV dedicated multicopter and have a question for "the best" receiver antenna setup for this mission. Looking for a low level close in setup (<50ft inside 1/2 mile) and low/medium alt within 1 to 1.5 miles.

I am running the RMRC 300mW 1.2gHz tx w/ a low pass filter on the quad

Currently for the ground station I have a RMRC rx w/ saw filter upgrade and a RMRC Optimized 8dbi Patch antenna.

I want to buy a second receiver and the Eagle Eyes diversity set-up, but what other antennas should I upgrade? For the quad, I currently have a inverted V and the stock whip. I thought about an Ibcrazy cloverleaf on the second receiver. Will that work with the stock whip or inverted V antenna or would I have to go to the bluebeam antenna set on both? Is there something better?

Thanks in advance!
