    Howdy...

    Sorry if this has been discussed before. I have a P2V+, and while installing the foil-shield mod today (awesome!) I noticed several extra wires that are run down the inside of the landing gear.

    Can anyone shed light on what these are for? Is it documented anywhere?

    Thanks!

    Best,

    Ben

    They are two antenna wires. These are for the control receiver, not WiFi. They are the ones that go nowhere.
    There's also a ribbon cable running down the right rear leg to the compass module.

    Edit: Note, the WiFi antennas are square patch antennas inside on the unit and are visible on the left and right of the battery compartment with arrows pointing forward.
