Carbon fiber is definitely a signal shield , the old roll over tube antennas didn't block it because the antenna wrapped around the outside of them.

Spektrum sells a special RX for carbon fuselage gliders that has longer antennas that stick out of the fuselage like whiskers.

It's not as much of a problem with FM systems, but 2.4ghz systems have a hard time with penetrating carbon.
