JR 11X antenna replacement?

I have an older JR 11X 2.4G transmitter. Unfortunately the main piece at the top of the antenna broke where is meets the square shaped rotating swivel.
I looked a JR Americas and they gave a lot of gobbly goop about the charge 65 per hour and may not work on my transmitter if it was not bought a JR americas, etc. Obviously they don't want to deal with fixing it.
That being said:
1. Where can I get a replacement antenna for this transmitter?
2. How hard is it to replace?
3. Are there alternatives to buying JR?

thanks for your help

I ordered one at DeeForce a couple a months ago and replace it in my JRDSMX 11x, it has a lot of screws because the antenna is connected directly to the module, but not a big deal you can fix it by your own!!

I never knew there was more than one! So I guess there’s a long one and a short one?

Images. Right from the deeforce.net site. Had to use the search bar for the long version. And the long's are about 2 weeks out. I reached out to Dee Force and got a reply from them.

Ok, so now I’m curious which one I need for the 11x? I haven’t taken mine apart yet, just I’ll start there.

I got the short one from a field rep several years ago, and it was too short, from what I can remember.

You need the long one, bacause the anntena is connected directly to the back module, so it has to be routed along the radio case
