    Is this fixable 1.3 Bluebeam Ultra

    I bought a second set of these awesome antennas from a user on rcgroups for a great deal. When they arrived this was so loose it fell out. I assume it happened in shipping or from traveling to AZ where it's 115 degrees currently. If I slip it back in I can get it tight but I'm able to easily pop it back off. Do I have any options?

    Mine was loose as well after a while. I just put it back together, made sure it was working properly, and put a little solder on the joint to hold it in place. Works perfect

    ive had this happen to 2 out of 10. Solder drop will make it ugly, but will work just fine.

    Btw this antenna rocks iBCrazy!! Mine has taken a beating and still performs great. I recently crashed and the antenna took all of the impact straight on. I bent it back and works awesome still

    It is just a right-angle adapter. The solder trick works great. I tried using my oven at 450 degrees Farenheit once. Leaving the adapters in there for 10 minutes all I had to do was touch the solder to the joint and it wicked right in. The stove works great as well when no soldering iron is handy

    If it is broken, fix it. if it isn't broken, I'll soon fix that.
