Bent blue beam?

not really sure what happened but when i looked at the 3 lobe tx antenna it was a little bent out of shape. got it looking pretty good but there is a little kink want to know if you guys think it will affect the signal much. haven't gotten the rest of my fpv stuff in so i can't test it out.

here is the kink

this one is just for reference

the resonant frequency of the antenna is determined by the length of the lobes. A slight bend it one really doesn't effect the length much.

it might have a small impact on your axial ratio, but it's really not anything to be concerned about IMHO. Go fly it
