Also, would there be any downside to having the stock video antenna on the plane and the cloverleaf on the receiver on the ground?
Your question is a bit off topic here as it puerly centers around your video antennas, but having the CL hanging below the plane is probably the best mounting method, alas ok. Regarding mixing a linear with a circular antenna, that's a bad idea as you loos 3dB by principle AND also loose the advantage of circular polarisation. Either work linerarly polarized - a good idea for a test to see if your issues might be related to the CP antennas - or consequently circular polarized antennas.
