What are the dimensions from the standoffs.

Curious as to the performance of the antennas when pointing downward? Any issues? Also, does the antenna "snug" into the socket or do you need to hot glue it? Love this idea!

Well, you have to consider that the antenna is on a drone that flies at an angle most of the time and in a race could be at any number of angles, even upside down. Yes it fits snug and does not need hot glue. I used this for a while and never had any issues. I have broken so many antennas I could not even come up with a number, I was trying to find a good balance of protection, performance and weight. You will get better performance if you can get the antenna further from the frame, but in a race that might mean loosing your antenna which will make performance a lot worse ;P I never had any issues, it would stay in there and my video was just as good as most anything else I tried.

Which version of the AXII do you use here ? The stubby or the MMCX ?

UFL version, but MMCX would also work. You could probably get away with Stubby, I made the hold large enough to fit an SMA connector
