I have a 2.4 GHz receiver that suffered damage to one of the two antennas - THE CAT NIBBLED THE EXPOSED WIRE OFF. This is a 2-antenna R617FS Futaba receiver and a replacement antenna has just been ordered.
So in the meantime can I still fly if one antenna is unharmed and the other has been slightly shortened right up to the gray insulation? From that, I'm guessing the coax shield MAY be touching the inner antenna wire.
Problem, or not? Will something fry if one of the two antennas is messed up on the end?
Thanks for any experiences, advice, or comments.
