Relocate Antena
I have an Ohio rc Ultimate 66in. It has 3 servos in the tail. I would like to run the (Hitec RCD 3800) receiver ant. inside the fuse in an ant. tube. Would the servos cause inference with the receiver or should I run the antena outside. It would look better inside.

RE: Relocate Antena
Routing the antenna internally will work, especially since the fuselage does not severely narrow in the Ultimate. Make sure you position the antenna tube as far away from the servo leads/servos as possible. The servo leads should also be secured to avoid sliding towards/onto the antenna tube while doing aerobatics. Obviously, perform a thorough range check before you fly with the engine running.

G'day Mate,
Make sure you keep the RX antenna away from the servos in the tail, the wiring to them is bad, but the servos produce RF noise, which will interfere with the RX signal.

RE: Relocate Antena

I have a Funtana 90, the older yellow one. I have 3 digital servos in the tail with 18" extensions to the RX. The antena runs parellel to the servos, and are no more than 1" away from them in the fuse. I have never had a problem. Would I design a plane to have the antena in this position.....NO.

But Hanger9 has, and thousands of people fly em every week............ Greg

ps: G'Day Alan :D How ya been mate? How was the 4th?
