v2 had the antenna sticking out at an angle to allow the battery to sit flush. Lesson learned...dont put anything you value hanging over a prop. Upon impact the antenna got pushed into the prop....the prop ripped out the antenna along with the ufl connector on the vtx.
I used the same tore up vtx, but hardwired the antenna to it. I put some washers under the back top so the battery can float above the antenna this time.
There is a mm or two between the props and the antenna, so i've slowly been shaving off the plasting on the sides of the antenna for added space.
these new tmotor 1103s seem a bit smoother and quieter. But that could be because this time i have 4 of the same motors :)
