Default Antenna issue

I,m going to the track tomorrow and the antenna holder that holds the antenna broke on the side. The antenna usually gets tightened with a screw but since the antenna holder broke I can't tighten the antenna. The antenna can still go in the hole but it is loose and can fall out so are there any ideas to keep the antenna in as I can't order a new part because I'm going to the track tomorrow.

I use a spektrum 2.4ghz transmitter with a spektrum 2.4ghz reciever if that helps.

probably it can, but if you're going racing i doubt you'll be at a track that big to cause any issues, never happened to me.

i have tested that i'm fine for more than 100 meters (300 ft)of range
