in that way, that you have the most "visible surface"

before I had it wound around one of the landing gears. but this gives you a "visible surface" of around 10cm.
I had multiple glitches, specially when being in the blind spot of the TX (straight line for TX antenna).

then I connected it from the landing gear to the rear end of the heli. this gives you around 30cm - and I never hand a single glitch until now.
