Default FASST Dual Antennas Install - 6014HS

Hi-
Futaba instructions warn against installing metal or noise sources near the antennas on FASST receivers. Would that include a metal geared servo? After mounting my antennas, I began to question if this configuration will be OK. Should I change it?

Another possibility is to orient them this way, but still it leaves the metal geared servo and also the pull-pull cables somewhat between the antennas. Looking forward to seeing your recommendation. Thanks again-

Your option 3 is the prefered method that I use.

The second and third photos look OK. The first one has the two antennas very close to parallel. That's not good.
