Curious how/where people are routing the antenna whiskers on the all carbon fuse?

Not sure how JR recommends but I run one out the top of the glass canopy and one out the most convenient side as far forward as possible for my Futaba gear. This is for the Carbon Team plane. I try to get a couple inches out the top and side. I've had this plane nearly 7/8ths of a mile down range (slant distance) and 2400 ft AGL. (Ain't doin dat agin)

On my glass 4.0 they are internal.

Drill holes to fuselge sides and let them hang out. Is there another way?

For DLG's I like to drill the holes just above the servo tray as to not weaken the fuse/nose. Normally the middle of the servo tray is the strongest area in the nose. So I lean the drill bit almost against the tray and drill the hole. YMMV.... Cheers!

Doug,

I put my antennas through each side of the canopy at a 45 degree upward angle. This way they form a 90 degree angle to each other and don't poke holes in the fuse.

Thanks Tom. That's what I'll do.

Antenna Placement

Doug: I have no problems with carbon fuse by routing antenna out the bottom past the wing trailing edge. That's where my carbon Spektrum remote will go with my new X and the new X F 5J. Bring that out tomorrow at Encinitas so we can have a look.....
