Default firewall mounted servos

I'm building a scale model with a full cockpit. To avoid having to run linkage through the cockpit I mounted two servos (throttle and choke) on the firewall. I will be running a magneto equipped G26 and a Spectrum radio.

Is there going to be problems with RFI with this setup? Other than using non-metal pushrods, are there other precautions I should be taking?

I'd get rid of the Mag and its weight and replace it eith CDI.

I purposely bought the magneto version for the weight. This plane (Taylorcraft) would need weight with a CDI anyway.

I contacted Horizon about this and attached is their response. Does anyone know anything about these RF filters? How are they installed?


Thank you for your recent email. You should not have any issues with
RF, but to ensure there is no problem, you can use RF Filters to prevent
any noise affecting the servos. A link to the item has been provided
below:

If you have any other questions, please let us know!
