Spectrum DX4e- HELP!

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Reference to other post:

Had signal problems, decided to take transmitter apart and saw what i think are two problems.

1st Problem -i see is the antena wire is severely pinched (circled top right corner) - is it safe to cut and rewire? or what should i do?
2nd problem -is the antena wire supposed to be sitting inside the arial housing like that (shown in picture)

Any help would be really appreciated.

Thanks Chris

Re: Spectrum DX4e- HELP!

Those 2.4Ghz antenna's are not meant to be modified, soldered, etc in any way. Trying to repair it is a bad idea and may result in damage to the RF deck in the radio. The only way to properly fix it is to replace the entire antenna assembly with a new one.

Call Horizon Hobby support and explain your problem. They will likely send you a new transmitter.
