Antenna íV (1) Receiver - RX --

The flexible wire on the receiver that 'captures' signals broadcast by the transmitter. The length of AM and FM antennas is calibrated to the frequency and channel of the radio system, so don't cut or shorten it. Always route the RX antenna as far away from other electronics or batteries as possible to prevent glitching (also try to avoid direct contact with graphite or carbon fiber parts), avoid moving parts that can damage the antenna (such as linkages and gears), and mount the end as high as possible to increase reception. Also, try not to bundle or cross the antenna over itself, as this can also reduce reception. The RX antenna on 2.4 GHz systems is usually stiffer than other systems - this is also known as a 'coaxial antenna'. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions, but coaxial antenna can usually be shortened to within 3 or 4 inches of the receiver.
