That´s an easy one. Simply put an inner nyrod trough the ribs from the receiver area to the wing tip and put the antena in it.
Dont have pictures but is a simple task. to make the holes for the nyrod I use a sharpened brass tube rolled between my fingers.
Hope this helps.

Tanks Match, but I´m only trying to pass some of the wisdom gained from all of you Brothers.

but thats not long enough for the entire antenna.
Do you just run it back towards the center of the aircraft in another tube ?

would this be bad?

A trick I've used on my combat planes is to wrap the excess antenna length around a piece of balsa 1x2x1/8 near the receiver. The key is to not let it overlap. Flying close in the reduction in range has been minimal. Looks like a base loaded antenna when your done. Got this tip from a guy who flys pylon.

all Ive ever done is poke two holes at end of wing about 3 inches apart run it out one hole and into another. The wire that is showing place tape over it to keep it from coming out.

Clear tape it to the bottom of the wing. Go slow, and it will look fine. Otherwise, small patches of matching covering material can "tape" it down too.

Just don't do any of this if your covering is metallic at all. Metallic covering can really screw with a receiver, and if you have it, the antenna should be well clear of it.
