Quick question, I made a new cloverleaf for my mini quad with RG402. When I screw it down to my tx, the antenna above still turns free. I was under the impression the antenna above would lock in place once it was tightened. Is this correct or did I do something wrong?

I really like Dande's method for getting a nice smooth arc on 5.8GHz antenna lobes. Does anyone else have any suggestions for those of us lacking in PVC? Obviously there is much improvement to be made in my work.

I should be locked down in place when you screw the antenna onto your vTx... Maybe a faulty SMA connector?

Rg402 isn't crimped, it's soldered to the sma connector. It my first time trying these.
