I was comming in the door from a short hover/ test flight, and snapped my antenna off where it bends, over the door. It just flew all to peices. springs, pins, parts was whizzing buy my head, It's still hanging on buy the wire, and part of the joint. No not the 420 one.

Any ideas on a fix?

I use mine Bent to the left, 45 degrees.

I have shrink wrap, but not big enough to go over the antenna, and I have zip ties, and super glue, find parts and glue, or not?

Why not just replace it yourself for $13? Not worth the "Did my radio failed?" risk.

This sucks, I'd hate to spend $13.00 for a a new one, I just need it to stay 45. Guess I'll glue it, the wires is fin but will make sure it's still connected to pcb board.

Thanks for the link I added it to my fav, for latter maybe I'll get a new one someday, just now any time soon.

Yeah, and I'm going to be saveing for a Jr 9303 2.4

I took the back off to make sure the wire was still attavhed, and it was just fine.

So I put this splint on it, shows it's war wounds.

Should work just fine.
