Make sure you have fresh batteries in the transmitter.
The antenna wire comes off the Electronic control board (ECS) and wraps around the plastic main frame.
unfortunetly it sounds like you have a ECS issue. They run $59 plus shipping , in most cases it makes more sense to buy a new MCX2 BNF for $89

i see that the antenna wire is still attached its a copper looking wire about an inch long but it was all up in the chassis so i pulled it out and straitened it a little but it is definitely still attached to the circuit board, i will try the fresh batteries and let you know thanks
