I would crack the case on that rx and make sure the board end of the wire is happy. Shrink tube hurts nothing.

Will do, just funny it happened in the exact same spot and I have flown over there hundreds of times.

Maybe a portal to an alternate dimension is opening up there?

Any day above ground is a GOOD day.

I better get a good FPV system with a super long range.

I know it's an older thread and I have had success repairing the antennas where they have got cut or broken in a crash. I can't find the discussion that was just on the forum that lead to the very specifics of length depending on frequency and so on, I had just shortened them and soldered them back in. Today came some new antennas for really cheap out of Bangood and I have that rx that crashed my Avro Arrow not long ago, range was 20 feet or so. . So we will solder a new one in and do some range tests.

If you do a range test, try to do it right, specifically choose a place you can make a circle around your plane, not just a simple walk away.
Now I suppose you understand why I consider " antenna less" receivers a great idea.

Cheers.

The ideal length for the exposed part of the antenna is 29mm for 2.4ghz, trim as required.

These are about 32mm and total length if that matters about 150mm

Trim the 32mm to 29mm for best possible performance.
