Hi

I'm looking to buy antennas from TrueRC but I'm worried that I'll get might orientation.

I want to use this plane side (and ground side, when not using helical) (5.8ghz "TrueWired" omnis package): http://www.truerc.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=45&products_id=408

And this ground side (CP Directional 5.8ghz 3 turns helical): http://www.truerc.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=45&products_id=403

Many thanks

All our antennas are right hand, and I believe all others sold by other vendors.

^^what he said, all the "antenna vendors" are RHCP unless you ask for a custom job. Personally I made my own left handed antennas. My thought was that if someone else is flying nearby on the same channel with circular polarization, most likely they will be right handed. So I made mine left to attempt to avoid picking up their signal over my own.

unless you want some from a guy in Germany who does left hand. hos antennas aren't as well tuned though.

Or he'll pick up my right handed multipath :)
