by reducing your range to a micron...



snapped my TX's antenna about halfway. gets horrible range now, not sure if it's cuz of the shortened antenna or i shorted something by mistake at the same time as i was testing this 180 motor from a colgate motion toothbrush.

man, RS just HAD to make their antennas 1mm thinner at the base thus any typical antenna that, although looks identical at teh base to the xmod tx antenna, it'll never fit into the opening on teh controller unless i take it apart and expand that thing a tiny bit

btw...if anyone has an extra tx antenna, (must not be damaged in any way) or even an extra xmod controller (again, must not be damaged in any way) let me know cuz RS is like backordered on just about every replacement part.
