Default Reciever Wire Length

Those of you guys have JR R135 Recievers. What is the wire length? Is it possible to trim it down any further?

Thanks

I don't have it on me right now but I know its probably around 14-16 inches. From all my experience, shortening or lengthening a receiver's antenna can cause glitching and loss of range. The length of the antenna is focused on picking up the wavelength of the broadcast, hence why a spectrum, at 2.4ghz, has only about a 4 inch antenna.

It is never a good idea to change the length of your wires.
