dont wrap around a metal tube frame - just loop in a circle and small zip tie and attach to plastic or lexan - metal causes odd things to happen from time to time

another thing ive seen guys do is crack the case open and coil the antenna inside the case

The RX antenna is so short in 2.4 Ghz that you just need to fasten it somewhere.. I am not sure about bending the RX antenna, it is just a wire I don't see an issue. What I have seen is the warning not to bend the antenna on the TX, are you getting these mixed up?
