Default Transponder

I have just bought an AMB transponder and i am not sure were to mount it i have two ideas on the cf in front of the batteries like on a tc5 or on the servo and i was wanting to know if any one has lost a lap due to either postion? (in the little manual it says that it is not recomended to do either)

I run a TA-05 with the version two 3racing cf chassis

Thanks in advance

Matt

I have a tc5, I have had it mounted in front of the battery, and currently sideways on the bottom of the servo (futaba low profile 9550), no issues, I wouldn't worry about it.

you could take a peice of lexan and servo tape that on top of the servo so it sticks out about and inch over the edge of the chassis and servo tape the transponder to that

i had it like that all summer and no issues at all

With any car that has little space, I have mounted them on the servo. No problems with scoring.

I put mine by the beside front belt b/h the front shock tower. there is a screw hole for the upper deck (i think) and have no problem.
