On similar models - I move the rx away from CF tube - rearward as far as possible then - place the second (satellite) rx in the very bottom of the model - away from everything You can buy a longer wire to connect rx to satellite.
My basic setup assumes that generally the bottom of the model is presented to the tx (or side n bottom)
