Depends on your build, what VESC do you have? Also because you do live in New York, you may want to consider the antenna for better a connection in high interference areas. < (Someone correct me if I’m wrong). You could have the antenna on the inside or outside of your enclosure, whatever suits you.
I’ll definitely have it in the inside. (I don’t live In the city though, it’ll still be good to have). I am using a maytech vesc (see link above). The problem is that I don’t know if the hard antena will fit in my enclosures. I am using the eBoosted 10s4p loaded vanguard enclosures.
Edit: Their website says this: “The ESC enclosure can hold 2 v4.12 ESCs (Enertion, Torqueboards or Maytech), Y XT60 or X90 spliters, remote receiver and an optional Bluetooth module.”
