Mast screws firmly down into the Aurora.
As mentioned previously, the "O" ring device is a simple locking device for multiple fittings. Allows mast to be used in other TX with different size/threaded bolts,(Futaba use two different size threads) the ring grabbing onto the antenna holding bolt in a similar manner to many hose fittings. Provides rapid easy change of antenna/module for the many who will continue to use old rx for some time.
The mast used as provided, with just the "O" ring engaged, is well braced within TX and has no effect on actual transmission, is secure and will not fall out.
Antenna Mount - suggested alternative fitting.

Post Script:
Spectra Pro 2.4Ghz is also compatible with other Module Type Transmitters that use the same Futaba/Hitec module shape/size/pin slots. e.g.:
5UAF, 5UAP
7UAF,7UAFS, 7UAP,7UAPS, 7UHF,7UHFS, 7UHP,7UHPS
8UAF, 8UAFS, 8UAP, 8UAPS, 8UHF,8UHFS,8UHP, 8UHPS
(8FGA, 8FGH as non-module radios can not be accomodated).
9CA, 9CH, 9CAPS, 9CAFS, 9CHPS, 9CHFS
10CH, 10CA
(10CAG or 10CHG as non-module radios can not be accomodated).
