Quote from: Phil_G on January 17, 2011, 18:53:18 pm I cant see a way of ensuring that at least one of the two aerials will always be line-of-sight to the transmitter when the airframe has no transparency at all to RF. Surely in some attitudes its bound to shadow both aerials, regardless of where you locate them. How could it not?
Quote from: danishpasty on January 17, 2011, 20:00:41 pmCan't help on the RX side I'm afraid but I have used the MR metal foil. Sticks like you know what to a hairy blanket. Tricky to aply. Does not seem to have the stretch which flite metal claims to have (though I have not used FM) so is not easy to work around compound curves and is very easily marked/dented thogh to be fair I am somewhat of a clusterf#ck.Cheers, RobThanks Rob, I have trialed the MR foil and found it to be workable with patience. You are right in the fact that it easily marks/dents, but it can be made to look superb with a few various finishing methods.
Quote from: frankfearn on January 17, 2011, 20:06:01 pmAs i said, I have already purchased the new 2.4 gear and Futaba do an optional set of antennas to extend the exsisting rx aerials to the outside of the airframe. Maybe I need to talk to Futaba.
Quote from: Phil_G on January 17, 2011, 22:03:47 pmDoes the 14ch rx have the option of satellites? If so Yoyo has the right approach. But Futaba have always ridiculed Spekky's use of satellite receivers - have they changed their stance ?
Quote from: Phil_G on January 18, 2011, 17:59:44 pmTwo Frsky TFR8S FASST receivers can be cascaded to give 14 channels and 4-antenna, twin-rx diversity... just a thoughthttp://www.frsky-rc.com/ShowProducts.asp?id=51Phil
Quote from: Phil_G on January 18, 2011, 19:56:22 pmExactly right Yoyo - they're not connected, dont even need to share a battery. But on this type of model dont you normally split surfaces with two servos, one on each rx? I dont know, I dont possess anything big or expensive just suggesting it as another option...CheersPhil
Quote from: frankfearn on January 19, 2011, 18:53:20 pmYou may well be right, , shame cause Flite metal was the way I wanted to go Hows the BVM Metal Cote, Is there any interference problems with it?? Thanks
