Be sure to check out our web site and YouTube channel at http://Video-Drone.DIY3DTech.com for more information on this and other builds! As this transmitter modification allows a lager 2.4 Gig-Hz antenna (see below) to mounted to the back of the Syma X8 series (and possibly the X5 too) transmitter. There are two version, the large is designed for the "larger" 2.4gig mounts (~12mmx~12mm) and the small is for the smaller (~7mmx~7mm) version. Below are links to suggested antennas as well as the Syma X8C Quadcopter!
Also for more on this build, check out the two-part YouTube series we put together for you as in episode 1 (https://youtu.be/XnO2CfRscGs) we look at the design. Then in episode 2 (https://youtu.be/-raWYPqWJoE) we print the design out on our Monoprice Mini 3D Printer (http://amzn.to/2alpYKU) and install it!

Support is required from "touching bed" perspective for the top. Other than that it is a pretty simple. Also for durability you can pain the interior of the print with some quick drying epoxy (very light coat) to add extra durability especially if you plan on using a larger antenna!
