Topsky 1

Hello,
New to dlg, bought a whipit, great fun. So moved on to a Topsky 1 from Atlanta RC. Starting to build, but have questions. What is optimum boom length, wing te to stab le? Also can I extend rx antenna out of pod for best reception?
Need to decide boom length before I move on... Thanks....

17 to 19 inches works. My Snipe is 18" and some have shortened them by 1 to 2". I took 3" off my Topsky 2 boom but I do not know if there are any differences between the two.

Build it stock. Follow the instructions. Not much to be gained from doing anything else, but just my opinion.

Also if it's a ts1 the fuse will be glass so no need to run the antenna outside
