Futaba FASST Aerial damaged
I accidentally cut the end off one of the aerial wires on a Futaba FASST RX. I carefully trimmed back the coax covering to expose exactly the same length of unsheilded aerial as the undamaged aerial. Will this work satisfactorially or is the overall length of the aerial including coax critical?

I intend to buy another aerial if necessary.

I would welcome your comments on this.

I would replace it. But for a good test perform a range test on each aerial. cover one side in foil to block the signal and this way you test one side at a time. Let us know how it works.

You can get the antenna from a variety of sources and it is rather easy to replace. There have been some guys that have gotten a much longer version of the antenna for use in scale models.

Yup
Just buy a new antenna.
They are fairly cheap and they plug into the RX, so it is super easy install.
Get a spare or 2, it is quite common to lop them off with an xacto.
