I installed the Lemon Rx LM0034 DSMX-Compatible 6ch Diversity Receiver on my Multiplex ParkMaster Pro with the antennas in plastic tubing in the foam, both above and below the receiver. The tubing is from a can of automative spray brake cleaner or similar. The inside diameter of the tubing is slightly larger than the antennas and works perfectly.
To install the tubing in the foam, I used a piece of steel servo control rod and sheath with an overall outside diameter slightly smaller than the clear plastic tubing. Using a rotary tool and thin cutoff disk, I cut a slit in the end of the control rod to create a cutting surface. With the control rod in its sheath, I rotated the rod by hand while pushing up from the bottom of the fuselage until I got to the length of the antenna on top of the cavity. I marked the control rod prior. The tubing is press-fit, no glue needed.
Once installed, I cut the clear plastic tubing at the top of the cavity and then pulled it down, leaving a length in the bottom section of the fuseage. Then I trimmed the tubing at the bottom of the fuselage and pulled it inside the foam a few millimeters so the antenna on the bottom can be taped down at 90-degrees without having too tight of a turn.
In the photo above you will notice that I installed clear Polyolefin heatshrink tubing on the Lemon Rx receiver. This helps keep the antennas connected to the receiver and gives a nice flat surface for attaching 3M double-sided foam tape.
