Default Hitec Feather Antenna ...Help....

My antenna wire broke off of my Feather receiver. Even under a magnifying light I still can't find where it goes. In the attached picture, I know i goes in the bottom left hand corner. Any ideas on proper solder joint??????? Thanks

Default There it is!

It welds to the spot marked on the pic!
But be fery careful with the welding! The temperature should be somewhat almost excact to the melting point. And dont weld anything else to it. On the pic, the joinin spot is in good shape, try not to mess it up!
Go look for some expert if you arent too good at welding!
The welding goes to the black spot! Its small but find it almost in the bottom middle.
I really hope that you find the spot!

Just pulled the sleeve back on mine.
The wire is soldered at coordinate 153,133
Put a dab glue on the wires insulation after resoldering for strain
relief.

Default Missing?

The wire-holding-glue on your receiver is missing
Bad manufacturing?
