Is there a down side to spiral wraping it down the boom? What placement do you use?

DO NOT wrap the antenna around carbon fiber. Will really mess things up. Stock position actually seems to work as good as any unless you change to an after-market micro ant. Happy flying, Tom

Can you elaborate on problems and a aftermarket antenna?

Carbon fiber is semi-conductive and absorbs the signal your ant. should be seeing. I put a Micro Z 72mh ant on mine. liteflyrc.com, I think. Have it suspended below the boom, parallel to but not touching the boom. Hope this helps. Tom

Grant it that I wasn't flying it more then 10' away..... but it seemed to work just fine on the boom. I am still only bunny hopping though.

So what does it do? I take it, that this is a pic what not to do.

I did fly it like this and did not notice any problems, but I was never farther then 10'.

It really is a good example of what not to do. Simply not a good practice because it comprimises your antenna's reception. It also may make no practical difference at short range. One thing is for sure though, a boom strike is going to be very hard on your antenna. Happy flying, Tom
