Default Futaba r304sb rx coiling antenna?

Has anyone tried coiling the antenna and leaving it in their battery box for the r304sb? I have the e version with the internal antenna in another car but want to use the regular 304sb on an ebuggy and prefer not to have the antenna tube. Thanks in advance for your insights.

The real antenna is the stripped 3cm end tip, the rest can be seen as simple coax cable to the antenna,so that part can be coiled.

All of my 603fs and 603ff have their antennas coiled on a piece of industrial Velcro on top of the receiver.

Bundled using heat shrink tubing running with a r304sb and 4px on a tekno .4 buggy with no issues. Been running them this way for years. Indoors and out.

Try to avoid any 90 degree bends, but otherwise shouldn't be a problem at all.
