Default Reciver Question

Hey guys i have reciently baught a ko propo with there new micro reciver. But i noticed that the aetana has like a heat shrink around the fiber wire, But the fiber wire is about 1 inch longer then what the heat shrink is, So is it safe to trim abit of the fiber wire away?
thanks chad

DO NOT shorten the wire. just leave everything in antenna tube.

All the new 2.4 receivers that I have seen have the same thing on them, do not trim the inner wire as it will lessen your receiver signal. I simply run mine through the antenna tube and then gently fold over the exposed piece and put the antenna cap on it. If you bend,kink, or cut the wire it will affect your receiver signal strength.

Chad,

All the different frequencies generate different wave lengths. 75Mhz, 27Mhz, 72Mhz, 2.4 Ghz (2400Mhz). The length of the transmitting and receiving antennas must be "tuned" to the frequency. An antenna is tuned through its length. Cut the antenna, and you change the frequency your antenna will operate at.
