Default Remote Receiver Question

I have two Spektrum satellites that I am getting ready to install in a Goblin 380. The satellites that I got new for this project have the antenna wire coming out one side that is covered for the first 1.25 inches and then the bare antenna wire goes out another 1.25 inches from there so it is somewhat long. My question is this. Can I take the end of the bare antenna wire and put a small piece of scotch or electrical tape on it to stabilize it without causing interference?

Another option is to insert the antenna into a plastic antenna tube and tape the tube to the heli. This allows you to both protect the fragile antenna and direct the antenna active element away from the helicopter frame.
