When I ordered my 6255's I knew the antennas were shorter than I needed. So, I asked the guys at JR/Horizon to extend them for me, and they did. I am think they would do that for you too if you asked. Dan's post shows how long the portion in the wing needs to be, but you also need 1.5" to 2" within the fuse so things aren't pulled to tightly.

Make sure when you do this install that the antenna ends are not swinging forward back to the D-box. My tubes rotated a bit, and I need to fix them so I get best possible reception for this configuration.

It should also be noted that this is not, repeat NOT the way the radio manufactures recommend that the antenni be installed. It is always best for reception to have the antenna sticking outside if the possibility exists for Carbon to shield the antenna. But, I like living on the edge I guess.

Fly hard boys!
