5.8 Diversity antenna setup?
I cannot decide what antennas to get for my FR632 Receiver.
I am thinking this Circular Wireless - 5.8 GHz Long Range Antenna Combo setup with:
Skew Planar Wheel Antenna
Helical Antenna 12dBi
Circular Wireless - 5.8 GHz Long Range Antenna Combo
Circular wireless Skew Planar Wheel Antenna and a
Not sure what to get. I don't know what all I might use this setup for. I am trying to make something that is good for whatever I might want to fly. Right now I am just solving the problem of my Nano QX FPV not putting out the right frequency for my goggles. However I do have planes and I also want to build a bigger multirotor if I ever get any free time.
Suggestions? I am finding conflicting and little info on the helical vs crosshair. Or...is something else better.

diversity for 5.8 is highly overrrated. well diversity in general is highly overrated
However you could put two good directionals side by side to get like 180 degree coverage. especially if your receiver in fixed and not on the goggles.
I own many 5.8 antennas, have had 3 helicals on 5.8. My current most loved favourite is the www.fpvlr.com 'parasitic disc helical.' I run it on goggles. It works amazingly well. really compact, light, stays in place. just great. Better than my 7 turn TrueRC and my 5 turn VAS antennas. The one I like on the plane/quad is either a mad mushroom or a Immersion RC omni. But I also have many True RC and one circular wireless colverleaf. Mad mushroom is the best of those omnis.
(I know my 7 turn helical will reach a lot further - like 5km or so. but it is narrow beam, fussy, floppy and awkward)
