Help me set up a FPV Plane

Hi Guys I am starting to build a purpose built FPV plane and I am interested in your component placement in the fuse outline attached.

I am on 2.4 DX7 AR7000 with a 900mhz downlink.

I am thinking of running a 3 db antenna on the vid tx.

I also was thinking about running the remote rx all the way to the tail but there will be 2 carbon fiber push rods nearby. Will this cause issues?

Let me know how you would lay out your components for the least interference.

you should be good..

The Carbon in a fully inclosed fuselage act as shielding and has been known to block out some singles. But Carbon fiber is not likely to distort and absorb the single as metals some times do. Some times called sapping. If your Receiver, is under the carbon fiber your good.

Ps I got some more foam to day and going start laying out my AP Super S
