What is the wing span of the small L-39 and the giant scale Cessna 182?
I always point the transmitter antenna up. The signal radiates in a doughnut shaped pattern from the sides of the antenna, not the top. Pointing your antenna at your aircraft is a good way to lose contact cause you're flying 'in the doughnut hole" where there is very little signal.
The small L-39 was the great planes park foamie, the Cessna was a Top-Flite at 81"
