Default Carbon fiber body and 2.4ghz

I would like to know if anybody has test and tried out, 2.4ghz receivers in a air frame that has carbon fiber in it? Will this cause any problems?

Well the directions say to keep the antenia wires at least two inches way from anything metal or carbon fiber. I have a CF wing tube and haven't had any problems yet.

Do a search because there have been all manner of posts on this subject. For a long time.

In many Pattern planes there is considerable success------many have lots of carbon fiber.

In some Sloap Soarers, Sail Planes etc. there have been problems noted due to the carbon fiber usage and the inability (narrow Fuselages) to properly locate antennas.

You wont see any difference based upon wing tube usage as aluminum (the normal wing tube material) is also a conductor------that = no difference.

The summary is simple-----each installation has to be checked and tested on its own merits.
