interference problems with aluminum tape?


I bought a roll of this stuff and I really want to use it on a scale project. I plan to run the antenna out behind the trailing edge and up to the tail. This is a must because it's a seaplane. Will this tape cause problems? With the antenna run over the top of the fuselage, if the plane were directly overhead would it "shield" the antenna?


Thanks

I have used aluminium tape (same stuff they put on windows for house security) and have had no problems what so ever with receiver reception. I had the antennae on the top of the plane, outside the tape covering.
