X8R Antenna Modification Help

#1
I recently built the UAVFutures $99 dollar quad. I am using an X8R receiver, but it is annoying that the antennas don't fit through any of the small holes on the frame. There is a black rectangle on the tip of each antenna, but I don't know what they are. Could I desolder them so I have a more standard whisker antenna?

That bit at the end is actually the entire antenna, everything else is just extension wire. TBH you're probably better off with just about any other FrSky receiver in terms of size and weight. IF you're looking to save some $$ the XSR is reduced pretty much everywhere.
