Default Blade CP glitches after brushless upgrade

A friend and I upgraded our Blades to brushless main motors (Himax 2015 4100kV, 20 amp E-flight ESC). Great power but we get random, frequent glitches. I'm using the stock receiver with a servo extension soldered to channel 3 for use with the brushless speed control. I use a Futaba 9C. He is using a GWS receiver and a JR transmitter. We've placed the speed control at the rear of the battery tray. My friend gets random, sudden increases in motor speed and altitude, I get smaller changes in motor RPM but sudden 90 degree movements of the tail. Any ideas what to check or how to fix this? I have no glitching when using the stock brushed motor.

Default RE: Blade CP glitches after brushless upgrade

Have you checked to make sure any of the main power wires like the wires from the battery or to the motor are not sitting on the antena or near the receiver. I done the same mod to my cp and its really hard to get everything situated so theres no glitches from radiated energy from the high voltage wires.
