How did you you pay for it? If by Pay Pal you will have an invoice in your account for it.

The antenna assembly wire and all is removed as a unit so for horizon not to sell seperately is absurd. I had recently called to purchase a new antenna for mine which is loose not broken. Send it in for service 50$ hour plus parts The guy on the phone said i was sol buy a new module. GFY to him. I also tried to purchase a receiver case same stuff wont sell seperately. Futaba on the way see ya spektrum.

I assume you mean hole. Take the cover off. Grind the case (around the hole) flat with a dremol. Clean and put a sticker over the hole. Then apply a piece of masking tape over the sticker to help stiffen the sticker. Then mix epoxy and fill the hole from the inside of the cover. when epoxy has dried remove the tape to see the cover flat and concealed with a sticker that you previously put on cover. Hope this helps.

Yes, and got the directions from here at RCTech, you may have to search for EX-10 or Z1 they are same radio.... It works great no issues with it. I just hate not having the second antenna (FM or AM), so you can pull it out and wack a fellow driver when they bend over the driver stand and you can not see.

Here are some links:
