Wake up! Time to fly!
Out of curiosity, have you tried the TBS cloverleaf antennas? Curious as to how those Axii antennae stack up. I've been running the TBS for over a year and a half, maybe 2 years now, and I like the reception; I think the Axii came out after I bought into the TBS ones so I haven't looked at them.
Yes they were one of the first ones I tried. Too heavy to bulky and got caught on gates too easy. Broke several of them and decided the cost was not worth the name. Switched to the aomway 2 for 20 dollar antennas and they worked about the same as the TBS ones but again kept getting caught on gates. Tried the axii dum dums (stubby but with the longer shielded leads) and saw a big performance gain in certain frequencies and swapped all my quads to them. Once the stubbies came I never hooked or broke another antenna and haven't looked back since.
