6ch24gradiomanualen.pdfI just purchased this low cost 2.4 G Computer Trasmitter/Dual Receiver that is cheap because it does not have the LCD, etc. adjustments built in, but uses your computer to set up and change the settings. It's seems similar to the FASST or Spektrum. (Here is another place to get it from)Of course I promptly broke off the small (about 2 inches) antenna wire on the receiver. My question, before I solder it back: can I add a longer length antenna to replace the broken one (since I will need to take it apart anyway) so I can potentially increase range? If yes, it would increase range, how long of an antenna should I make (between 5-12 inches)?Thank you,Tom

I couldn't let go this option for this price and a chance to upgrade my gear while also gaining some more features. If I would have had to pay $200+ for this setup, would have waited until I had more invested. At this point, this was the best bang for the buck vs time available.
This site also has some excellent reviews / articles on other RC stuff - servos for example.
What happened to the Futaba Tx conversion Tom?
I just went 2.4 GHZ. Not really for the frequency, but for the price vs features this system above offers. It seems that Hobby King has the same set up as above for $30 instead of $60.
Thanks for the tip on HobbyKing. Seems to have some great deals.
I assumed that the dual receivers would help eliminate singal loss or noise interference. Did yhou experience these problems wiht this set up?
