Spectrum AR500 Help!


I have an AR500 with a broken antenna the good one is your common snap on wire,the broken side is solder'd on to the board on only one spot, this wire appears to be a short plain wire with no shield.I thought all 2.4 antennas were coax cable?where i'm required to solder the shield and the center antenna to two different spots.I'm pretty good at soldering and need some advise.The other option i have several long Fry Sky antennas with plugs and thinking to just change out the existing one mount external and disregard the broken one HiTec run several Rx models on one antenna? Thanks in advance

Send it in. It'll probably only cost you $3 in postage.

Thank you sir,i'll be airborne shortly.Sinse you seem to be in the know ,am i correct in thinking this is only the antenna and sinse not longer than 31mm does not require a shield and only needed if extending it's length,i see the wisker on the other long one is 29mm,i had'nt really thought about that.Again thanks i owe you a beer Peter
