i think if you follow the instructions that come with it (like lengths of wire) you wshould be good to go...ive got two of them i noticed a reduction in range, but i dont think the person who did them made them correctly

I've used three of them over the years and they've all been really good. I didn't find they decreased the range at all. (then again i've never flown an airplane out of range before). They're great setups if you need something along that line. Just make sure you follow the installation instructions and cut your wire to the correct length.

Do it right and you will be fine.

The range of you model will be reduced but it should already be much longer than you can use. you won't notice a difference. If you perform the ground check with the Tx antenna collapsed you will see the difference.

These antennas have been around for many years. They are not a gimmick.

I used it wherever the stock antenna would not fit or detracts from the scale appearance of a model.
