Hi, one of my landing gear is broken. I managed to change it. I bought the spare part N°14.
It is very easy to dismount the landing gear (screw and fork).
BUT I need to disconnect the antenna before removing the landing gear.
I don't understand how to disconnect the antenna. need to unscrew ? need to pull ? need to ???
Is anyone able to explain how to proceed ?

Looks like a standard connector to me, push in the sleeve/collar thats been knurled in and the connector should pop out.

Dear Hyper ... Perhaps good intention, but the entire Hell is full of wrong advisors ... The plug must be simply pulled off, preferably holding the socket soldered to antenna board with small pliers. Knurled surface is where you clamp your fingers on.

Pull, not push! Maybe rotate the plug gently first to loose the grip, holding the socket firmly.
