I have just upgraded at long last to 2.4 ghz and all is going well. Glitches that I was getting have now vanished and I'm really pleased with my new system.
I would greatly appreciate some advice/suggestions to any who currently use the Futaba R2006GS....although the situation may well exist on other systems RX's.
I currently have my 2 new RX's in fairly large wingspan planes, thus the fuselages are quite roomy. I am intending to add some more RX's to replace the ones in my other aircraft some of which are quite tight on the interior space.......onto the problem.....
The manual states, and I quote..."the 2 antennas must me kept as straight as possible" and "the 2 antennas should be placed a 90 degrees to each other"
Now each antenna is about 140mm long, and whilst other things can be inbetween the 2 antennas, getting the above 2 criteria into a smaller fuselage has been quite challenging.
Do any of you seasoned users have any tips/tricks that you use in your aircraft?
Is it OK to place the antennas into thin drinking straws to keep them straight? I'm thinking I could then thread the antenna/straw into a normally inaccessable place.
Hope there are some suggestions out there.
Many thanks in advance.
