Guys! I've been glued to this thread ever since the modules came out. I received my set last week and I was finally able to plug stuff in and test out last night (on my new 9XR). I also ordered a CP2102 (based on info found on this thread) so I can experiment around with different firmwares. This is what I ordered, by the way, $6. http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from...2&LH_PrefLoc=1

It was stated before that people have flown out to 1.5 km with the stock firmware and antennas, which seems perfectly fine for me initially, but I will eventually want to fly further out. So, this leaves me with a couple of questions (after reading every post on this thread):

1. What type of antenna is best for the RX? I've read stuff about 1/2 dipole, etc, but I have no idea what these are exactly. Can someone point me to the right direction?

2. For the RX, it seems like a nagoya type would be best. Something like a Nagoya NA-771? Again, can someone point me in the right direction, please?

Thanks!
