Hobby King 2.4Ghz 4Ch Tx & Rx V2 (Mode 2)


Hi,

I just bought a "Hobby King 2.4Ghz 4Ch Tx & Rx V2 (Mode 2)". Both the receiver and Transmitter antennae are pretty short. Do I have to increase their length? I am planning to use them for the boat I am building and expecting the range to be around 500mtrs.

Regards

I would not try to extend the antennas, They should work fine the length that they are. You might try to make sure the Rx antenna is outside the boat for best reception. You never alter the antennas on your equipment.

Am using this radio in a club project and have no real problem with range. But just to be safe mount the receiver in cabin above the deck, this unit needs less than 1/4" bulkheads to see thru(only will penetrate that much). But your 500 meters will be a long distance to see the boat unless it is very large.

@radialarm, thanks a lot for your input. I was worried about changing the length too.

@CaptLee, I am trying to make a boat similar to AQUACAT for surf fishing hence I need that range.

The Aquacat also has a long antenna which will help in reception when the boat is behind the surf, that is why I was wondering about increasing the length.
