Default JR R-135 antenna question

I was running my RC10GT around the other day and I noticed that the 3 or so inches of antenna that was sticking out of the top of the tube is gone. It somehow got sliced off right at the top of my antenna tube. Is this a problem or can I leave it be and be fine????

I think that the only problem you have is reduced range - but besides that you should be fine.

It *might* not create a problem, but i would get that antenna replaced (with the proper replacement part) as soon as possible. An improper antenna length can reduce range, and increase your susceptability to interference. You are putting your vehicle and everyone around you at risk by running with a cut antenna.
