    You'll need to remove rear cover plate , unattach ribbon from that point ( opposite end from picture ), then FIRST attach ribbon to RC mainboard, feed other end through Rx rear plate, then attach ribbon there replace cover plate!

    Wanted to add if you have never done this, the plug the ribbon goes into has a small black tab you must flip up, put cable in, then lock it down ( flip it back down )

    Be aware though, that if it was pulled out of the connector without flipping up the latch, there could be damage to the connector

    Maxxuav.com has a good video on how to install new antenna cables in a rc, the video will show you how they are placed and Jake explains in detail how to secure the ribbon in the connectors. Be very gentle, take your time makanice.
