    Hello everyone,

    I'm building my very first kit (SCX10 2) and I'm just noticing the receiver box appears to have no hole for the antenna. I've looked at images of the kit and RTR versions online and none of them show the antenna. I will be running Axial's rigid light bar and a winch through the receiver so I suspect the receiver box will get crowded with wires. I'm worried if the antenna is left in the box it will get damaged.

    Any assistance for my "mystery" is greatly appreciated and I thank you in advance.

    The antenna just folds up in the receiver box.

    P.S. the tactic receiver on the rtr does not have an external antenna.

    Thanks Little Rascle for the quick reply. I'm guessing a short bit of antenna tube wouldn't hurt to protect it while in the receiver box?

    Probably not.

    If you're running a 2.4Ghz setup then no, no drama in having the reviewer aerial coiled up.

    However if you're using an older crystal based setup you will need to drill a hole in the receiver box for the aerial to go through and up and out.

    I'm running mine coiled up and have no problems with reception. Plus with a crawler you aren't that far away from it.
