as i have experienced some problems with going in fail safe, i would like to know where you guys put your receiver antenne

i used before the 'classic' way, a tube on the skids horizontal with the tail boom, but when nose in or inverted nose in i have had some problems

i saw some electric helis where the antenne end was at the front of the heli, others go to the tail fin

i don't know what is best for 3D flying, inverted, very high flying for death spirals or autos

let me know

thx

Deans Antenna

I mount mine in the front and above the servos.

I just tried a Deans on my Intrepid. Now I can't get more than 50 feet with the antenna down before the servos go crazy. I could go 3 times farther than that before. I followed the directions and left 7 inches of wire, even direct soldered it instead of the connector. I tried numerous locations, still NG. It is in the trash now.

stock raptor 50, just the stock place for the antenna parallel to the boom. Not attached to the boom, tube is stiff enough for such short length. Maybe you have a bad bearing in engine or start shaft? Or a bad gyro?
