if you have an old ps2 ball mouse lying around, the stands of wire inside the cable could work too! they are as small or smaller than the reciever wire

I like Futaba's antenna wire...
My XXL antenna was so flimsy I had to get the more insulated/beefier futaba antenna.

Most hobby shops should sell them by the meter!

Go to the LHS and give them either og these 2 part numbers for antenna wire. Sig SH-328 It has 8 colors and 3 foot wires in the package. Or use Ace R/C #520 It has 8 diff colors at 30 inchecs each. I have used these both over the past 14 yrs to replace damaged wires. P.S. They are also the right size for spark plug wires for 1/24 scale plastic models as well. Hope this helps
