Respectfully, many here talk based upon assumptions without Facts....Real airplanes have tons of aluminum, steel, magnetic components, lots of very thick hardware surrounding those diminutive antennas which ARE CRITICAL for their navigational equipment .
This being said, I have many years of experience building all aluminum large scale airplanes and radio signals ARE NOT affected if you use the proper radio set up
. I HAVE Lost airplanes due to dump thumb but NEVER for radio reasons. Before radios were reliable, we built a 45% scale Cessna flown with a EK FM radio and a go-kart engine which we flew very successfully for years.
With 2.4 , You will better off if you use a radio based on receivers with remotes to insure flawless performance..
