Default Aerial positioning

Hi guys

Nearing the completion of my heli now. Just trying to decide which is the neatest and best way to run the aerial.

Is there any guidlines I must stick to or something?

Had a look at the Deans micro antenna which looks pretty cool only problem is it seems to only be for 75mhz radios and mine is running on 35mhz! Oh and whats the difference between the one piece and the two piece?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here's micro antennas for 35Mhz (scroll down):

I've used Azarr antennas (72Mhz for me) on Micro Helis and really like them.

Rick-

I get so sick of looking at your perfect bird!!!! LOL. It belongs on a pedestal in a gallery. Wow...I said it before and will say it again....you are an artist. :!:

Question on the first picture. Did you notch your frame to get he Deans antenna to sit flush with the bottomplate? Secondly, what is in the black heat shrink right behind the Deans antenna. I know it is the antenna but how do you have it ran?

Thanks Rick!!

Travis
