Let me have a noob question:

how much rejection or any other penalty expected when I put my CL ant upside down on the heli (due to the lack of space atm)?
Would it be significant/very bad idea?

same CL situated normally on my ground station, I guess cant rotate it also by 180 deg to be sync with the other one

It's probably better to mount it up side down.

No loss. just a very good idea for installation.

I have a pair of ibcrazys 5.8 blue beams from getfv and just dont know the answer to this, but does it matter if I have the 4 leaf on the vtx and the 3 leaf on the vrx? Or is it better to have the 4 leaf on the vrx and the 3 leaf on the vtx?

It will work in both ways. Usually 4leaf is used on VRX. You can try by yourself and find your own best configuration.

I just built my first 5.8 CL following Alex's directions. I've built a number of linear antennas previously. Making a linear is a piece of cake compared to these. And making a good CL is clearly beyond my first attempt. I still like to play around but I'm not sure this will survive a landing let alone a crash. LOL My hat is off to IBCrazy and his guys.
