Michael,There should be no reason if installed correctly that the radio would not work. ...One of the biggest problems with gyrocopters is the installation, you can have the best radio in the world but it will not work with a crappy aerial, this is the biggest downfall in all gyrocopters..... many people use this aerial in gyrocopters because it does not need a groundplane and in some installations it works okay, if you are only transmitting at 124 MHz it will provide you with great performance.... There is no excuse to install a bad aerial into aircraft, there are so many good choices out there Many thanks Michael
What would be most helpful here is a short list of what you consider the "good ones" and what you (as the radio manufacturer) would recommend for a Gyroplane installation (using your radio). I suspect most of us on this forum have a much more limited understanding of antennas than you do, so at the risk of offending some antenna manufacturers that don't make your short list, go ahead and give us some specific recommendations and tell us what makes them work better. Any direction you can give us would be much appreciated and may just drive a bunch of new business your way.
Another thing that would be very helpful is a short list of the biggest mistakes you see experimental builders make when installing your radios. It may help some of the rest of us from making the same mistakes and or give us some areas to focus on when installing our radios to make sure the installation is done right.
Thanks for your help,
