    On the remote someone said the left antenna is RC control (transmitter) and the right antenna is data from the craft (receiver) so I have to ask why when a booster (RF amp) is used why is it installed on both antennas. How does the RF amp help the receiver side . Please let the know

    Likely enables it to receive a stronger signal, from a greater distance away, from the RC. Makes sense to me.

    This question comes up often. If you're hard of hearing, why wear a hearing aid? Same reason.
