EURGLE RX Antenna Problem

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I had been getting a 6 channel, DSM2 compatable RX from EURGLE that had a simple foldup plastic box cover. They then tried to make the RX better by covering it with epoxy and a heatshrink cover. They Failed to bring the antennas out at 90 to eachother at the corners of the case. This caused a 25-30 % reduction in range of signal receiption, form the older RX. The problem can be fixed by cutting back the heatshrink and glue, and pulling the antenna wires out to 90 as shown in the pictures. Some hot glue can be used to reseal the end and help hold antenna in place.

not a signal reduction but a reduction in diversity, it only uses one antenna at a time and switches to the better signal
