    Should have no problem's but, fit it and see what you get, if it stuck to the outside of the model it will be easy to remove and put some where else.

    I think out the back and bent down has had mixed results. I think the gimbal tends to interfere when returning home. I try to get the antenna as low as possible, and I have it offset to one side. I have had solid video out to 2000 meters, and had to turn back because Im a weenie...

    After doing several flight tests, I found the best Tx antenna position is out to the side and not the back.


    We all have your phone number now Tawd77. :p Might want to blur that out.

    I personally think that's the best position. Try it out and see how you like it.
