I would do everything I could to prevent it; at least put heat shrink on one of them. CF is conductive just like music wire. Jim

What is your reasoning for that?

By themselves they won't cause a problem, but any time you have two conductive materials rubbing against each other you have a chance to generate interference. CF is certainly conductive, so yes it is possible to generate interference with them.

I have personally witnessed this many times on my micro heli. if one of the landing gear legs is able to move around it will almost always generate some interference. (cf frame and cf rod for landing gear leg)
