I think he means that since you are carrying the Tx upsidedown, it rests on the antenna? Instead of on the bottom of the Tx.

Because when you are carrying the case by the handle, the radio is upside-down. It's probably held up by the corners, but I would still take the whole thing and turn it around because there's switches on the shoulders of the radio, and you don't want carrying pressure and vibrations on those switches. You're going to have that radio for many years, and you'd be surprised how that abuse builds up.

As I said, it's just a suggestion. I can see stress on the top of your antenna even when the case is closed. It will probably be fine but is just something I wouldn't do. Hope it works well for you.

Oh right now I understand. Antenna pointing to the handle. I thought switches pointing to the bottom of the case

I was thinking around the wrong axis
Thx for the tip.

Yeah you got it. You should be able to take all the foam out and just turn it around. I glue my foam to the bottom of the case, but if you didn't do that, just turn it around 180 degrees.

aaarrrgghhh... One tip for those who fly in a flat... NEVER fly in a room with open windows :s
I just forgot about it and my nano "crashed" into the open window. The window was not much open. Just enough for the nano to seek freedom but it couldn't handle the open world and I shutdown throttle in a reflex. Result was a crash from 3 high...

After close inspection I have to admit... The nano is a strong chopper Just some damage on the swash plate which I have to change...



Oh yeah... The canopy is also history.

Not even a bent feathering shaft or main shaft...

So, tomorrow no flying and Wednesday surgery time... Meanwhile I have time to prepare for this delicate operation. Any tips?
