Default RE: Antenna dimensions

a di-pole antenna with each leg being 40.5mm is optimum for 2.4ghz

i'm not sure why you're concerned though
the radio/receiver will come with the antenna that the manufacturer has tested and determined to be the best for their equipment
just run what it comes with and extend the antenna as far as you can/ per manufacturer instructions

if you just want to make your own

I search a little bit and find that some receivers have VERY short antennas. Question. If the antenna is too short and can't get out of the receiver box, what i must do? Sorry for i'm such a pain, i must confuse you, right? I'm just trying to get my knowledge rising all the time PLUS that i want to buy this car
