cut half of one receiver antenna


Accidentally cut 1 of the antennas of the receiver in half (not sure how).
It is a Futaba RS617FS receiver.
I went to try the quad and it lift off and about 40cm from the air, it does a yaw move to the right and then accelerates like hell. .
It's hard to buy parts in Costa Rica, so I wonder if you know of a DIY method to replace these coax antennas?
Any suggestion on where to buy them if there is no DIY fix method?

I just built this quad, it works perfect, not like the old one and this happened. So sad. :P

I'm faily new with RC. Not this kind of spare parts yet.
I see that a DIY antenna will not be easy.
So I found this ones on ebay:

And bought a bunch of them just in case.
