TattleTale Location

I am having trouble finding a location for mounting the TattleTale in the super skinny fuselage of my new sailplane. The only place I can mount the TattleTale and still see the led from the hatch is closer than I like to the receiver antenna. Is there any recommended minimum separation between the TattleTale and the Nano? I would hate to get to the field and have a range check problem.

The recommend separation between the antenna and any metal or wires is 2". A range test is the only way to know if the installation is correct. You should also be doing range tests periodically anyways. Most clubs require one before every day of flying.

Since the TattleTale has wires, looks like I will have to not install it in the new sailplane. This will be my only model without a TattleTale. Since my sailplanes often fly at extreme range, I feel a lot more comfortable with a TattleTale to monitor my receiver. I even have a TattleTale in my electric sailplane to monitor the Lipo voltage at the end of the 30 second climb.

Just range test it. You will likely find it has no affect at all on the range. I would say that 95% of our customers do not follow the rules for the antenna separation.
