    Hi , I have recently fitted retracable landing skids on my phantom 1, I have had to remove the original landing gear which housed the compass and the two aerials, I have cut and shortened one leg to re fit the compass,
    Is there any reason why the aerials need to be fixed to anything or can I leave them loose hanging from the quad or will this cause loss of signal if they are not fixed to the Quad ? ? any help or advice please guy's :)

    mine have been hanging loose for a few flights now & not noticed any issues, but i don't fly that far away anyway (upto 500metres)
