Ultra Light 5.8Ghz U.FL Antenna
FuriousFPV 37mm 5.8Ghz U.FL RHCP Circular Antenna (Green)
SMA/RPSMA screw in connectors are big and bulky - especially if you're building a tiny quad. FuriousFPV decided to use U.FL connectors instead, making it less than a quarter the weight of "standard" antennas! Enjoy great video clarity without the weight penalty!
It does not have a protective housing though - so make sure your mounting system is well thought out. If you do happen to break one, they're inexpensive and quick to replace!

Used this to replace the CP on my FX798T Camera since the original one got busted 5 min in the air. I soldered this one directly to the board and used a small plastic tube to take the brunt of an inverted crash with the pigtail providing space for the antenna to flex out of harms way. Wish I could upload a Pic to clearly show but all in all very happy with this.
I was able to drop 14-16 grams off of my 5 inch hyperfloss build with this antenna.
Now instead of a pigtail (u.fl - sma) + antenna (far view pagoda) I have this antenna only with a direct connection to my vtxs.
The obvious problem is durability! They are more durable than I was expecting, as they hold up well in minor crashes. However, they were unable to take the weight of your quad being dropped on them.
Great product and will save weight on any build, but if you crash like I do, HARD, they could break the bank.
The color is a plus as well.
