Simple Antenna Retainer
Simple Antenna Retainer


Simple Antenna Retainer
Description: Secure your receiver’s antenna wire simply and attractively at the fuselage exit point and at the tail. A piece of a plastic control rod’s outer tubing serves nicely for the antenna’s exit. Reinforce the exit area if necessary with a piece of scrap balsa and secure with CA or glue. The antenna wire is threaded out the control rod tube. To secure the wire, drill a tiny hole in the tail. Apply a little CA to the threads of an “L-HOOK” (available at any hardware) and then screw it into the hole. Next, cut a “retainer” from a piece of rubber gasket material and make three holes. Use one hole to place on the “L-HOOK” and the other two holes to thread your wire through. Simpler yet, you can use the little double (two-holed) rubber vibration reduction grommet that is packaged with Futaba servos (as shown in the photo). In a crash, the exit tube will flex and the rubber grommet will allow the antenna to slip. Thus, at least, your receiver’s antenna will survive.
