i have a turnigy 9x with orangerx module and i seem to be loosing range easy due to my hands and lipo in transmitter
i want to know if this little invention cooperates with my orangerx and help me by getting a bit more range by moving the eariel to natural position

Could anyone tell diameter of plastic part, which fits into transmitter hole?
In other words - diameter of spinning part inside transmitter case? Or maybe anyone knows another product with such part? Mine broke (on MX-20), searching for replacement.
OK, got it and used on Graupner MX-20 (with some tweeaking). Adaptation: drill 3.5mm hole (to fit Graupner antenna plug, strip heatshrink), add little duct tape (diameter is ~0.5mm less than Graupner. Now works OK...
I'm using this antenna with my TH9X and it fits just like the factory antenna did. I soldered an SMA connector I bought from Radio Shack onto the module and it works great! If you have soldering skills and a small drill for the SMA connector attachment to the module, it'll work great and give you the flexibility to use other modules. I highly recommend the antenna/module mod!
The difference between SMA and RP-SMA (reverse-SMA) is the inner (center) pin. Look at your transmitter antenna, RP-SMA has the pin inside the jack, SMA has the pin inside the antenna. There are jack adapters available on E-Bay.
Well, generally a well adaptet transmitter antenna is also a good receiver antenna and vice verse. I'm using this as an extended "out-of-canopy" antenna for my big gasser (2,2m YAK54 DL50 powered). No range issue. Hint* I have removed/trimmed down the rubber protecting real antenna inside - so I have the antenna wired exposed (like the extended antenna of the X8r receiver - just be careful so you don't cut the real antenna wire..
Adrenalin, Look at the center of connector on your Corona module. If the center terminal is a pin (male) this antenna will not work. If the center terminal is a female terminal this antenna will work. Assan module uses SMA connectors. JR $pektrum module uses SMA-R. Difference is the center pin in the connector. SMA-Module connector: center terminal is female. SMAR-Module connector: center terminal is male pin. Adapters are available at local electronics store. SMA connectors are typically used for 2.4ghz WiFi and high freq. computer networks. Search the internet for SMA CONNECTOR for more information.
5 thumbs up!
Mine looks just like the foto. However, the shaft does not fit the Hitec Eclipse. The stock ant hole is about 2mm greater in diameter. So it is not a drop/slide in fit.
The connector is cheap flashed with gold. It protrudes so much that lying down the TX causes it to rest on the right angle connector. There is no difference from the stock ASSAN module ant in terms of protection.
Let me know how you mount your outboard ant on an Eclipse
Predlzovacia antenka pre Optica sadne skvele po vysrubovani povodnej anteny. Je potrebne si vyrobit adapter pre tuto antenu ak ju chcete mat na povodnom mieste. Vadila mi antena z modulu. Skvela cena Hobbycity!!!
