    Is this mod possible??

    i was wondering out of curiousness if its possible to mod the 2.4 receiver with the 2.4 antenna.
    Something like this
    Traxxas Antenna: 2.4 GHZ TQ Transmitter TRA2237


    if so that'll be cool.

    I think it may be... but you would have to be able to solder it to some very small areas on a circuit board.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    i thought that i would but if you open the rx it looks like they made it to be diy fixed. im pretty sure you know what the inside of a 2.4Ghz looks like and how the wire is. idk ill try it and let you guys know. still if someone has done it i hope they see this post lol

    Most RC'rs are not comfortable with soldering something that small.

    Interesting about the range. Try running it without an antenna installed, and see if there is any difference. I'm worried that perhaps the antenna isn't soldered on correctly.

    I have some IPX connectors that I've ordered, and I was planning on soldering them to the rx board, and then connecting some 2.35-2.45ghz antennas to them. Technically it should work just fine, that's why I'm concerned you may have a faulty solder to the rx board.

    Again, try running it without any antenna, and see if the range decreases - if it doesn't it's clear that the antenna wasn't soldered correctly, however if it DOES go shorter (as in 15-20 feet) than there's something more to this story.

    Good luck!=)
