Default 8B 2.0 RTR - antenna tube installation?

Can't find a reference to this in the manual, and even though it's 2.4Ghz I'd still like to have the antenna upright outside of the body.

There is a hole meant for the short antenna wire to come up out of the rx box but the supplied antenna tub does not fit.

Is that grub screw next to the hole supposed to come out, then insert the tube and re-insert the grub screw?

Thanks,
Evvy

So are you trying to stick the antenna tube into the receiver? Because it does not work that way. There is a small hole next to the receiver box where the tube goes in.

That's what I'm referring to.

Pull out the set screw next to hole then insert tube. Then reinstall the set screw.
