Default Spektrum DX6i Antenna Replacement

Hey all,

I did a google search and wasn't able to find anything, surly I'm not the first one to think of this...

But My DX6i Antenna broke, at the hinge, it won't stay on the hinge. So I need to replace it. But I hate that hinge anyway and much prefer my DX6 antenna that's all 1 piece..

Could I not just replace the DX6i Antenna with the DX6 antenna?


Thanks!

You're in central Illinois, just send it over to Horizon Hobby in Champaign. If they charge you any money at all to fix it, it won't be much.

I could just order the part and fix it myself and I guarantee it would be cheaper than sending it to them.

But that's not my question... I don't like the folding antenna... I would rather change it out for the fixed antenna on the DX6, I'm asking if anyone has tried it or knows if it works..

OK sorry I didn't understand. I don't know the answer to that but HH will. They're easy to get on the phone but if their answer is yes they're probably going to want you to send it in to put it on so that doesn't help much either. Doesn't hurt to ask 'em.

The best fix is to get a DX9. Great radio. Still doesn't answer your question, sorry. That's the best I've got.
