Hello,

i'm wondering if there is an optimal position for the Spark RC antennas ?
would they give better performance on horizontal / vertical / slant position ?

regards

According to the Spark Manual:

thanks not answering RTFM :-) i've been looking in the RC manuel but not in the aircraft one...

This sketch is still missing the value of the actual openning angle of the optimal area.

Long side of the Antenne towards the aircraft = Maximum range.

Just drop a doughnut over your antenna.  That's your radiation pattern.
