That's ok, having seen his build so far, I'm sure that B.m will just add moving needles to go with some form of illumination.

The engine has been taken apart. I put bearings in all three pulleys. It is back together with a small electric motor driving it. But I can't seem to post the video. How do I upload videos here?

When you say that you were going to run the antenna side by side, they are right you do need them to be 180degrees to each other, but I think vertically, one up and one down.
I run twin antenna as I have a diversity Rx, you can see it in the photo, but you could use the idea for a signal antenna. You don't need to be as high as I have them, but the principle is the same. The antenna build is in my rcgroups blog.
Wouldn't be the higher the antenna the less interference with the vtx. Just asking.

Probably.....but I know that Carguy doesn't have a problem, and his antenna is very low compared with the one that I use at present. And to be honest I've never had my EZUHF interfering with the 1.3 ghz video, or the other way round.
But I do believe that the higher the antenna the less likely that it will lose the signal when dropping into a dip in the ground than with a short antenna.

That is true. I have been debting on putting my antenna up higher and moving it to the back of black bear then i don't know where I will put my walkie-talkie. I would put it under the hood but I have the DL rx under there. Lol i dont what to do.
