A quick perusal of the specs for the HP3 series leads me to believe these are equivalent to the HP2 series except for cosmetics. The challenge to using them is more mechanical than electronic. I mounted them in Altoids cans using some female header strips. Many of the pins are grounded so I soldered these to the tin for support. My antennas are connected via about six inch lengths of RG174 which was done for prototyping. My plan is to solder the four ground plane elements to the tins and to mount the driven element through a hole drilled in the box securing the element with a blob of 5 minute clear epoxy.
There is a caution in the data sheets about how close to a conductive plane the modules can be mounted but mine work fine approximately centered which puts them about 1/4 inch from the box surfaces.
This type of construction might be a challenge considering your sight but you could probably adopt another approach. I do recommend using a socket or header strip and plug them in rather than soldering them.
