Default Spectrum FPV parkflyer system issues

Hi guys, Im an RC tanker and I bought the fatshark parkflyer FPV system from Spectrum. It has a little camera that plugs into the receiver for power and a stand alone video receiving TV.

I mounted it on my tank and when I drive from half to full throttle the screen gets very distorted all the way to loosing the signal.

My RC gear boxes have 400 motors in them with resistors soldered across from polarity to case. The camera is several inches away from the motors, its on top of the turret.

Any idea why the distortion is happing at the high end of the throttle? It basically isn't useable to drive the tank, just aquire targets and shoot.

Does the RF interference happen on all the VTxr's channels? Sounds like the motors are emitting RF. Maybe have to add a capacitor on the motor to eliminate the RF.

The motors have small caps on them. Unless they are resistors, not sure there.
some times i get a clear screen but more often it destorts completly while driving.
