I got into RC about 5 years ago with a second hand Multiplex / FM receiver that used crystals. Then I discovered the Novak Xxtra Synthesized 75mhz Receiver. Upgraded to a 3pk a few years later and have been using them both since. Got envious of the 2.4ghz guys with their receivers with a little antenna and decided to try to go with a super compact antenna layout and it worked. I have 15 of these receivers and use them in all my cars this way from onroad and even offroad compacted in the battery compartment of the RC8T with no problem! I Ďrarelyí glitch but I think that most likely comes from wires too close together in the car. Iíve run tekin, speedpassion, LRP speedos with no problems and even SAVOX receivers with no problem where some people with their fancy 2.4ghz do.
I picked up an extra long antenna for the radio that was in the clearout bin at the LHS thatís about a foot longer than the regular black replacement antenna but since I threw the package away, I donít know the part number to this. Anyone?
I am last of a few that run FM at our local onroad/offroad clubs and still get ridicule regularly. Oh well.
