Default is 12% range loss critical?

hi, i have found a compact and very light loaded antenna (see link) that i would like to install in my next plane (patriot)

http://rchover.com/inc/pdetail?v=1&pid=539

the thing is that i will lose 12% of the radio range, and since planes travel further than helis i was wondering if there will be a problem.... what is a typical 72 mhz range anyway? (i have a JR XP 622)

thanks for the info,
vasek

way more than enough minus 12% is still enough

but why not use one of the little stiff wire base loaded whips?

Right now, your transmitter can transmit a signal farther than you can see the plane in the air. So 12% will not be a problem.
