Default 27MHZ Antennae Legnth

Hello

I've broken the wire antennae on my Aerobird Xtreme too many times to know what the original legnth should be. I've been noticing that my range is rather limited and I just about lost it last night with all of my night gear! Can somebody please comment on what the proper legnth of wire antennae a Hobbyzone Aerobird Xtreme operating on 27.255 (Ch6) should have?

Cheers, Brett

I'm not familiar with that specific receiver but; most receivers are set up to use approximately a 1 meter length (39 to 41 inches) so that may be a good goal to start with. Just do a range check after soldering on the new antenna. Gauge is not real important, anything about 22 to 20 gauge stranded copper wire will work okay and be resonably strong and flexable. Of course you can go to larger or smaller gauge and still be electrically okay.
