Default 2.4GHz receiver antenna and battery

Just picked up an Aurora 9. Installing a receiver in an EDF, and directions say to mount the receiver antenna away from the battery. Does anyone know just how far away it has to be, and if it's OK for the antenna to cross itself in at any point?

WRXDave,

The antenna does not have to be a specific distance away fom the beattery or batteries.
It can be any distance more than 3 inches and preferably above so that in most normal maneuvers the antenna can see 360 degrees all around.

If you have a satellite receiver place the satellite antenna at least 2 inhces away from the primary antenna and at 90 degrees (orno more than 30 degrees off from 90) from the primary.

I wish I would understand what you mean in the green text above. You have the word "antenna" to the singular (only one antenna) and I cannot see how a single antenna can cross itself in at any point.

We are trying to help.

Best as far as possible but in my Twinjet, thetip whiskeris inside the model,within 18 mm of the battery, no ill effects noticed to date.
