Why Use a 45 Degree SMA Connector?
This SMA 45 Degree Connector is useful for pointing antennas on both your quad and goggles upwards.
Omnidirectional antennas actually have a dead zone in the vertical axis, so it is best to keep them vertically oriented during flight and on your goggles. Using a 45 degree connector is perfect, since most quads fly forwards at an angle of 30-45 degrees.
Directional antennas on goggles work best when they are pointed straight forwards and by using a 45 degree connector, you can adjust the upwards angle of your directional antenna by rotating the connector. This way, you can add between 0 and 45 degrees of up tilt on your goggle antenna.
Increase the Lifespan of your Goggles and Vtx Connector
SMA and RPSMA connectors have a limited lifespan and using an additional connector between your antenna and goggles or Vtx increase their lifespan.
RP-SMA (Male) to SMA (Female)
Use this connector to adapt your male (non-DJI) antennas to your DJI Goggles

It's great quality but not just for goggles, I'm using it for my 5 in her vtx's antenna connector
