small antenna for LR 1.2ghz video

Hello guys,

i would like to know which antenna is the smallest one for 1.2ghz long range 800mw Tx - for mounting inside a radum (sp? - i mean a fiberglass ball) on my UAV FPV model.

It can be linear polirization or CP.

I do have a SPW from IBcrazy (home built) but it is very big to be fitted inside a cover.

An "inverted vee" antenna is pretty small as it's only two-dimensional. A dipole is actually one-dimensional, only height, but since it's taller than the vee it might be harder to fit. It all depends on where you want to mount it. Many mount either of these flush to the outside of the airframe. If your goal is to protect the antenna, that's mostly an issue with CP antennas. Linear ones are more sturdy.
