    So was reading on the forum about antennas for the wireless and I see the huge square thing that Uncle Fester is using and may order one but I also thought what about the antenna for the controller perhaps get a bigger antenna and thus better signal

    was looking at this

    http://www.ebay.ca/itm/New-Dual-Band-2- ... 7c6&_uhb=1

    Can the Antenna in the controller be changed.. is it just a screw on type?
    I have not looked inside my controller yet (just got my vision) so I have to update it but want to do everything at one time including a USB extension etc so I don't have to crack open the controller again...




    was also thinking of using a longer antenna for the wireless just to see if there is a difference between

    High Gain 2.4 14dbl straight antenna
    http://www.ebay.ca/itm/151150266158?ssP ... 1497.l2649

    and
    the TP Link 2.4 14dbl antenna
    http://www.ebay.ca/itm/190687163783?ssP ... 1423.l2649


    will see what happens with that... the first one is just a straight antenna which would be much easier to transport... :)




    so can the antenna on the main controller be changed easily?

    I just opened mine to see how to get to the USB port and it is not a screw in type, a wire would have to be spliced for a different antenna

    No expert here, but antenna length may be specific to wave length????? Just a thought!
