I have flipped my Earthquake 8e so much it has pulled the antenna tube out and destroyed the antenna so like a newb I cut maybe 1cm off the tip(my buddies where like what did you do???!!!!) It was so mashed up the tube wouldn't slip over now it slips over but my distance has been cut in half.............. so I bought a new antenna not for a 2.4ghzt Redcat and soldered it on and it seems okay going to try it again today. Anyone else have this prob or have a good fix?? the new antenna is maybe 3-4times longer then the stock one was which was prob about 5-6 in long
Antennas should NEVER EVER be cut. If your antenna on the transmitter or the receiver is broken or cut you need to either make it longer or replace it. The longer you make it the farther it should (in theory) Reach. Of course the distance is also limited to the power available, I.e. the batteries.
