    Hi
    I'm flying radio controled aircraft models .
    I thought to increase the transmited power from the transmiter
    can anyone tell me how to do that?????

    Hi, I too, do RC planes.

    Transmitter mods are not too complex, but unless you have equipment to check it
    for output waveform and spurious signals, it isn'tt a good idea to do them.
    There's too much potential for killing a plane on a nearby channel.

    It would cost less to get a new TX anyhow. The GWS four-channel for example.
    What are you using now?

    Also, if range is a problem you should invest in a better receiver before you
    think you need a better transmitter.

    I can't fathom why you need more power.
    I used to fly a 10 foot RC glider to over 12,000 feet without any power
    problems. Only problem I had was keeping an eye on it. At that
    distance it is only a speck and usually require binoculars to see.

    Just hold the transmitter sideways so that the axis of the
    antenna is perpendicular to line-of-sight. Maybe look up
    "radiation pattern" or "cone of silence".

    Good Luck!
