    Any suggestions on how to mount 5.8Ghz cloverleaf antennas on the bird side? I thought I had seen a post previously about this but I can't seem to find my way back to it.

    Thanks in advance. :)

    Hi,

    IMHO it's better to mount the antennas in the legs that do not hold the gyroscope. Alternate the 2.4 and the 5.8 antennas vertical and horizontal on both legs. In other words, don't place both 2.4 antennas on the same leg. Here is a picture of my phantom.

    Cheers,

    Charlie

    Thanks Charlie for the advice. Is that mount piece something you made yourself? (The bit the antennas are screwed into)
