how do i attach my antenna?
I would like to attach the end of the antenna to one of the boom supports. Could someone please tell me a good method to do it?

Thanks,
Jim

1 inch piece of fuel tubing and a zip tie. Zip tie the tubing against the boom supports and the run the antenna through the tubing it isolates it from the aluminum, preventing any interference. I personally would buy an whip antenna though, Revolution and Deans makes them.

there's a post on here where someone cuts the antenna shorter and uses the boom support as the actual antenna, so i would not be concerned about the antenna touching the aluminum, if anything, it should help with the range.

lenginthing the antenna beyond the factory length will NOT increase range. The length of the antenna wire is designed to be a length which is harmonic with the wavelength of the signal it is receiving.

Well actually Tazzy, you did! By saying that the antenna touching the aluminum will increase the range, you are indicating that additional antenna area will increase it's effeciency, when in actuality it will reduce it. I am not trying to start a flame, just commenting on what I read.

Actually, you can achieve SIGNIFICANT range increases by making the antenna longer.
