Help!
My dog ate my RX!

Hi posting this here because it looks like the best place… I hope.
I just received a new Orange RX610 a couple of days ago. When I got home this evening I discovered the new puppy had her way with it… the antenna wire has been chewed off!

So if you have one of these could you possibly measure the length of wire protruding from the case.
I think I will try replacing the wire with one a little longer and trimming it down to get the best performance.
How critical is the antenna wire length? Are there alternatives to improve the range?
Thanks in advance.
Rob.

I have no information to help you but I totally feel for you. My dog has been trying to eat my quad stuff since the day I got it. So far I've taken away from him my multimeter, a bottle of gorilla glue (thankfully he didn't puncture it), my screwdriver, any rubberband or velcro strap I put down, and also one of my gopro batteries...this he did puncture and I had to get it out of the house fast because it was heating up fast. Damn dogs.

I feel better, thanks for sharing the pain...

I just noticed your in Nashua, I was down there for dinner this evening, that's when the dirty deed happened.

PS, if I get this thing together it's going on a Tri.

Holy crap! Henniker! That's where my dog is from. You're the 2nd person I've realized is in NH today.

40mm, looks to me to be just a simple piece of silicone wire... the solder joint is single point.

shultz,

That's the stuff! Thanks!!!

Looks like I can tack on a 22AWG wire and trim to 40mm.

I am a happy camper,
