Default RE: Using a Deans Antenna on RX


ORIGINAL: Rcpilot

I've got several little 40-size planes, and the darn antenna wire is always too long. I'm always racking my brain trying to figure out a way to route the long antenna lead and secure it to the plane without letting it get damaged.

I am NOT willing to just let it flap around in the breeze behind the plane. They get ripped up and damaged that wayand I don't like replacing amtennas.

Anyone ever used one of these:

I could cut off the existing antenna and mount this little antenna on the top of the turtledeck on most of my planes.

Any problems using these? Hows the reception?

Thanks
With all that money you have laying around Chris, you could just convert to 2.4 and be done with it!
