Now which way was home.....
Features:
- Compatible with our 1.3GHz receivers
- Significantly increases transmission range
- SMA male connector

That would be a "yes". Its compatible. But why not get an IBCrazy patch instead?

So kit price means that its a DIY kit that I have to make myself?

Exactly and they cost really less. But it's only assembly, the parts are already cut to the right dimensions

All you have to do is glue the wooden blocks to the plates and solder the included wire through the pre drilled holes. It takes longer for the 5min epoxy to set up then it takes for any of the rest of it.

Anyone want to answer a dumb question? What's the difference between right hand circular polarization (RHCP) and left hand circular polarization when used in the context of IBCrazy's new cloverleaf?

No difference, except that Tx and Rx handedness must match, or they won't work at all together. Or are you asking how to determine the handedness for this type of
antenna? If the latter, that's described in his antenna building threads.

I know that he had talked about how to make a RHCP or LHCP antenna, and how to turn one into the other, etc. I just didnt know what RHCP was. Is it the way the radio ways travel? Would the be different than LHCP?

There's no difference in their ability to propagate. One handedness doesn't work
better than the other, unless it happens to be paired with the opposite polarization
antenna in which case the pair doesn't work together at all. There are many ways
to describe and/or visualize what CP itself represents.
I'd refer you here, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circular_polarization

Bit of trivia. RealD 3D glasses that you use in a regular movie theater
use circularly polarized light. The movie projector projects images for both left and right eyes
onto the screen simultaneously, each side left and right circularly polarized.
The 3D glasses have left and right circularly polarized filters (unlike conventional
sunglasses which have vertical polarization). The left hand polarized light is
blocked by the right hand polarized lens, and vise versa, so each eye only
sees its own side's image. Because it's circularly polarized you can tilt
your head without a change in what each eye sees, same as CP antennas
can tilt with respect to each other and the magnitude of the signal received
doesn't change.

Thats very interesting! Thank you for the article, I read the interesting tidbits and left out the other stuff.

BTW, whether light or Rf, when a CP wave is reflected, it reverses polarization.
LHCP turns into RHCP after the reflection. This is why a pair of CP antennas
are resistant to multi-path interference. The strongest multi-pathing comes
from the first order reflections off various big objects, and because
those reflections have opposite polarization, they are basically not seen at all
by the receiving antenna on the original polarization, much like how the 3d glasses
don't see the image for the other eye because it has opposite polarization.

The light in my brain just flicked on Wow, thats a heck of a concept! Someone must have been really smart to realize that and utilize it in an antenna. It took my this long to catch on.

Could you please help me about a confusing situation I'm experiencing. I have got two identical fox 800 tx units from bev rc and their receivers. I connect my vee antenna to one tx power it and no image on the googles until I touch the antenna once then the image comes. I connect the vee to the other tx power the system and I have the image without touching the antenna. With stock antennas everything is normal. I tried it with two receivers same thing happens with that tx and vee combination.
