My bolt-on (removable) horizontal stab


** No range problems using my gear.  I am using a Hitec 555 rx, Hitec Flash 5X tx.  I have flown it so high in a thermal it was barely more than a speck in the sky with no problems.  Folding antenna back on itself is bad, as is coiling it (or so I've been told), but this meandering approach has worked well for me.  I marked the path with a pen, then melted a shallow groove with a soldering iron.
