    Has anybody ever seen these so called antenna holders that hold your antennas at a perfect angle to increase max range. I laughed hard when I saw these but now I'm wondering does anybody use these things? I'm still somewhat new to the RC drone world so I don't want to dismiss it just yet although I feel that it's completely unnecessary.

    yea I saw this earlier today and messaged the seller. Since I somewhat deal with wifi for work (though am no expert), I do know angle and distance for MIMO antennas is important. However, I doubt a slight bend of one to right/left will have a significant effect, say another 100meters. I think the value in this is it keeps the antennas stable in case you bump something.
