No, you didn't fry the receiver, what you did was probably reduce your range to less than half. Any time you fold the antenna over itself you are reducing the range of the receiver. If your trying to hide the ant. then run it down the inside of the fuselage and let it exit out the rear of the model. You can secure it with a piece of scotch tape at the rear. Oh, don't forget a strain relief as this will help to prevent the ant. from being jerked out of the receiver if you happen to have a misfortune.
