The hardest thing in FPV......

The hardest thing in FPV for me is ......

After six months I'm still unable to identify if my cloverleaf or SPW antenna is RHCP or LHCP ?
Photos of antenna sellers are often not matched to the product description.
Images are so compressed they look like one of those optical illusions the longer I stare at them.

Could some one please describe in simple- moron-proof- English how I can tell ?

Thanks in advance

Look at it from the side, and imagine if each of the elements was initially vertical and then bent over to the side.

If the top of the element CLOSEST to you is bent over to the right, it's RHCP.

Good photos !

Thank you so much, all clear now.
I was quite frustrated that connecting everything, soldering, programming OSD etc etc didn't cause me a headache, but this did.
Now I can start making a matching helical.

thanks again!
