Hello !

What would be the best solution to fit the antenna on my Vario Cobra with HP5. It could just hang underneath, but this is not quite scale like !

Any suggestions !

Best regards

Hi Peter,

I do not have any specific suggestions for your setup but it does remind me of a question I've had about antenna routing on jet aircraft in general. I've noticed on almost all jet airplanes I've seen that they share the same kind of wire 'whip' antenna that extends vertically right out of the fuselage. Many aircraft have two of them (maybe using dual receiver setups?) They all appear to be longer and much more flexible then the "Deans whip" and other off-the-shelf whip antennas I have seen here in the USA. I've looked for these antennas online at jet related hobby shops and can not seem to find them. Perhaps they are all custom made? I'm curious if they are superior compared to other whips or even the stock antenna wire. Those jet planes regularly travel so far from the transmitter that it seems those antennas work very well whatever they are.

Antennas and antenna placement have been discussed many times here on runryder but few true answers have immerged.

Seattle_helo you can get a whip antenna from Dreamworks Model Products Graupner also makes whip antennas. they are not base loaded and are about 20 inches long.


Bang68 you can mount a deans baseloaded antenna internal and have a small portion go through the fuse and bend it to look scale.
