Default Broken aerial on Futaba 2.5ghz receiver

Can anyone tell me if a Futaba 2.4ghz receiver will still work correctly if the aerial has been cut?

I'm in a rush to get ready for racing in an hour and have managed to cut the aerial so now it's only about 2 inches long.

I've tested it with the radio next to it and it seems ok but I'm not sure if I will have range issues.

Mine is broken at like 2 inches from the case and I've been using it with no problem for months.
