I've only got a cheap standard 27mhz receiver with 400mm wire, can i wrap it up and only use short rod instead?
The higher the frequency the shorter the antenna.
To compute for a full wavelength of the antenna in meters is -
The speed of light 299,793,077 meters per second divide it by the frequency [per second] in megahertz is equal to 1 full wavelength of antenna.
A 27 MHz frequency antenna is longer than the 75 MHz frequency antenna.
So using a spektrum 2.4 GHz frequency antenna is shorter than the 27 MHz and 75MHz frequency antennas.
And that's a FACT.
