Default Micro Antenna ?

I have a Hitech Electron 6 receiver that I have installed in a Fliton Prodigy powered with a Hacker A-30-16M. Due to the size of the plane, I have a microantenna installed (Lightenna) and I have had flawless operation.

I am now moving this receiver into a Fliton Extra 330S powered by a Axi 4130/16 motor, Jeti 77A ESC and two TP 3S2P 4200 packs in series. Its a bigger plane and hence have room in the fuselage for the full length antenna and thought this would be a good idea to maximize the range/signal reception considering the larger size and hence larger pattern of this plane.

Any thoughts on this?

In other words, can I remove the Lightenna re-solder the original antenna (I still have it) back to the receiver without issue?

Sure, you can put the regular antenna back on...should be fine. If you want to become an expert on antenna's read this: http://www.rc-cam.com/ant_exp.htm It's worth reading.
