Can you guys post ideas or photos of your unmodified antenna attatchments? I have a Electron 6 on mine. I'm still figuring out where to route the antenna. I coiled up my antenna on a pushrod but I ended up losing range about 200 feet. I'm not going to use the base loaded antennas because they seem to not work with my setup. I get loads of glitches.

Hopefully you guys will have some ideas. I don't want to crash again!

Okay, I see you're using the Bobbin that came with the RX to shorten it. I think I lost mine. I have RCHover's aluminum landing skid so I'm going to have to find another way to mount it..

here you can see the antenna coming out of the reciever and looping under the skid, it then goes forward and into the antenna tube.

here you can see that the antenna tube is pushed forward as much as possible and then the antenna comes out of the tube near the rear skid. It then goes up and back into the little hole in the boom brace (just above the tail pushrod) then it goes down and farther back to a small hole i drilled in the bottom of the vertical fin. Then i just made a small knot in the antenna wire to keep it in. ( there is plenty of room between the spinning blades and the antenna)

This allows it to be stretched out the whole length of the copter (from in front of the body to the tail fin). This helped allot with glitches.

CPPM is sweet. Well I won't know until I fly ..hehe

Thanks for the photos. I might just use the bobbin, shorten the antenna a tad bit, and then run it through the rod that came with the align skids..

It flies GREAT, and it's light. Plus it cost nothing to do the eCCPM upgrade.

I also like the way the control linkages are almost always 90degrees to what they are controling and are very close to parrallel to the main shaft, makes everything behave very linearly.

It was a little harder to program the Eclipse 7 for 90degreCCPM but i got it dialed in.
