Default Proper Antenna Placement

Ive seen alot of pics of flyers putting their antenna wire into the flut on the horizontal stab. Will this decrease your range from being inside the coro?

I've been doing it for 6 years no problems. In fact, on my Spa3d's, the entire antenna is inside the wing flutes, no problems

it will do just fine. the plastic dont block the radio waves. in fact it is better because the flute will protect the antenna in case of crash.

im using it like that on my qhor and never had problems
