Thanks mmatrix00,

The stock antenna is stranded, Evidently using a solid wire is beneficial for increasing the range. Going from 4' to 130' is quite a improvement. The 54" antenna that I put on mine is stranded wire. I think I've got a roll of solid wire around the shop, So I'll try that on the S033G.

I've got a new pcb and motors coming for the S033G, They are supposed to be here Monday.

What's weird to me is the fact that the Heli flew fine for the first 5 or 6 flights, Then started having signal fades. That progressed into full signal loss and that's when I quit flying it.

I've got some Heli's on 2.4Ghz, That's what I'm flying at the present. I really would like to get the S033G to where I could trust it again. Maybe the new pcb and long antenna wire will cure the signal loss problem. I've got my fingers crossed.
