The industry has pretty much standardized on a 1 meter long antenna. Anything from 37 to 41 inches should work well. All these receivers are base loaded to give optimum performance with that antenna length regardless of the frequency you are operating on.

After you install them and route the antenna around the other stuff, they are completely out of tune anyway. 40 inches will work fine. Tower sells antenna wire for Futaba's. Any 19 strand wire 24 to 26 gauge is OK.
