I'm not sure that the antenna ground is the same as the other grounds.
I remember Alex (IBCrazy) was recommending creating a dipole for a 72mhz RX by sending the RX antenna down one wing, and the a ground down the other wing. I asked him if I could just use a black servo wire for the antenna ground wire, and he said its not the same. I would have to find the antenna ground pin on one of the chips and harvest it from there. I didn't know how to find this, so abandoned the project. I find myself in a nearly identical predicament now.
