Long of the antenna 35mhz rx

Recommended Posts

Hello:

I´m Jesús from Spain. And I want to increase my Dbi of my 35 mhz rx of my Futaba. It´s correct 80inches? I think is correct but I want more opinions.

Thanks

Happy new year.

Jesus

I saw some tests MR RC-CAM did, not sure where.

The results showed that the length is not critical as the RX is made to work with a high impedance aerial and not a tuned aerial. 80" sounds fine to me.

I recommend that you retune the antenna matching coil after the length is changed. That, along with the longer aerial, should result in much more range.

You must have a very large model to handle a 80" length! FWIW, if you fold, coil, or wrap the longer element, then you will be back to where you started.
