Default Antenna Length for a Futaba R123F?

I have just noticed that my antenna wire seems to be cut...it was used when i purchased it.

I have never had an issue with signal or glitching issue.

Can someone tell me how long there antenna is on this RX?

Can i resolder a new one, same length as you say yours is?

Thank you

Default Antenna Length for a Futaba R123F?

atlrcracer;

I have a Futaba 133F on 75mhz and just measured the wire.

The total length OUTSIDE the case is exactly 19". I would add another 1/4-3/8" to that for whatever is needed inside the case and soldering.

Hope that helps,
Steven
