    Thank you PK,
    Looking at the photos has made it easer, and yes i too would definitely use magnets in this case.

    If it looks right it probably is.

    Hi Zooma.
    Totally agree.
    Have used the elastic band from boyhood years and it works well.
    Magnets are the modern alternative,and never go ping and are more secure.Also never need to replace them.

    "works well as long as the elastic band is strong enough for the particular application and is replaced before it has time to perish"
    ... and it doesn't 'PING' off into the lake ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜

    Ground testing radios with longer aerials such as the 27meg, and 40/41 meg radio systems should be done with the aerials fully retracted to reduce the effective range before walking way from the model to perform the test.
    Some 2.4 gig systems (such as Spectrum) have a range reduction button that can be depressed to give the same range reducing effect.
    Pre-arranged hand signals with a "helper" are essential to establish what is going on when the model is too far away to observe the response by eye.

    The elastic band and hook idea has been used for many decades and works well as long as the elastic band is strong enough for the particular application and is replaced before it has time to perish.
