And to answer this question,
If you were flying above 1.5km yes it would matter. Max effective range on a stock Frysky is near 1.5km. Far to high for you to be without an FPV platform. Now if your talking patch antennas, you can reach out to as far as 3-5km as long as you keep the patch pointed at the aircraft. This again is what I have only researched.
I'm new to FPV, therefore haven't yet explored the maximum range with my Frysky system. I'm getting there slowly though
