Question on video Tx and radio Rx in plane - separation - how?
I get that I am suppose to separate the Video Tx and radio Rx in the plane. And I understand that they are supposed to be different frequencies.
I am running a plane with a 1.3 video Transmitter and a 72MHz radio receiver. What I am unclear about is if it is better to put the video transmitter as far away as possible from the radio RECEIVER or the ANTENNA. I know that "Both" is likely the best answer. But what I have set up right now is both Rx and Tx very close to each other near the body of the wing, with the radio antenna coming out the back of the plane.
The only other setup I can imagine with this plane is to move the video transmitter to the boom, which would then put it approximately dead-center of the radio antenna. Unless I stuffed the antenna up into the front of the plane (would that be better?).
I know I could at some point try to get the antenna out the wing, however as the wings are detachable that is far from ideal.
I should add that I keep having interference issues but I tried it today without turning on the video (for the first time) and it flew fine, so I understand there is an issue here... (I also have a 2.4 GHz controller that I am sorely tempted to try; note I am not looking for long range here; mostly I just want to take good video within a one mile radius; think "aerial photography" purposes).
Thanks for any and all help,

I am no expert but I think putting your Vtx on the wing tip is the best answer. I have had my first fpv plane this way for awhile. My second one I went back to the fuse(in the nose for balance) and got less range and servo chatter from my pan servo. I just now moved the Vtx to the wingtip on that a/c also.
Yes it adds it adds another connection to be made, just mark the wires or you can make the connection opposite of the servo wires.
