    Hello group.

    I purchased some landing gear spacers on eBay to get the phantom up a bit off the ground to give a bit more clearance for my GoPro.

    Seems the two receiver antennas are a bit short and there's no extra length inside of the hull. If I install the spacers the antennas will be a bit further up into the leg assembly. Could this pose a problem with anything?

    The compass cable seems to have adequate slack available to permit the spacers so at least that should be OK.

    Thanks for any info.

    I bought what you're talking about and it has had no effect on mine...the antennae seem to work perfectly. I just moved the compass up the leg about 1/2 inch.

    Should have no effect at all. I fly 2.4 in planes and helis with the antenna completely inside the fuselage.
