I was putting shrink tubing on the full length of the antenna's of my AR7000 receiver to help hold them straight. When I was shrinking them down part of the grey insulation pulled back and exposed the end of the antenna on the main receiver. About 2mm is showing without any insulation on the end. Is the receiver still usable or should i replace it? Also will the shrink wrap affect the antennas ability to receive a signal since it is the full length of the antenna?

Thanks

Heat shrink will not affect the antenna performance, nor will the exposed wire (although the wire could eventually fray, making it more likely to suffer real damage).

Why not just remove the bit of heat shrink you installed, put on a bit longer piece to cover the bare end and go fly?

Just be careful with the heat gun next time. You only want to shrink the tubing, not fuse it to the plastic RX case.
