Default RE: PCM??

I'd reccomend finding the source of the noise and fixing it. The rings are called Ferrite.

PCM isn't going to fix the noise, just hide it. Instead of glitching PCM just ignores a bad frame, too many bad frames and you get lockout. If the interference is bad enough when the plane gets farther away ppm will glitch, pcm will lockout, the end result is a crash, usually the only difference is if someone took the time to setup failsafe, then the pcm will have the throttle at idle but PCM isn't a cure for a faulty radio installation or metal to metal noise somewhere.
