Possible to Move Antenna's Past 180*?

I've only been flying my P3P a couple weeks but one of the first things I noticed is during longer distance flights when trying to keep the antenna's in the optimal position in relation to the AC I have to tilt the remote towards me at times to keep the video feed. The antennas are at 90* at this point. I cannot move the antenna's any further towards me with a tablet in the holder.

It seems that you could get optimal antenna position easier if the antennas could be moved down past 180*. That would really help when adding windsurfers. Is there a way to unscrew the antennas, and spin them around so they "bend" the other direction? They would then move from 180* - 270*. Has anyone tried this?

I don't understand what you mean.

If you crook the antennas so they're standing upright and parallel, you can then move the entire controller with your hands and thereby point it at the drone perfectly.

It's not comfortable or natural for me to hold the controller tilted toward me. Would rather have the antennas do the work.

Any thoughts on how to remove the antenna without breaking anything?
