Rx Antenna routing on an F5B fuselage

The fuselage I have is a carbon/kevlar weave. Any interference problems if I run the antenna in the fuselage. Also, how are you guys routing your antenna. If I just run it straight down the fuse there would be a lot sticking out the back flapping in the breeze. Just looking for the cleanest installation I can get.

I run mine right through the fuse and I have had no problems.

Hanging out the back is fine, BUT with a carbon composite fuse, you must get it out of the fuse as close to the receiver as possible. The instructions that came with the CF/levlar fuselage model I am assembling make a point of this.
I still don't know where to route mine - the say just tape it back to the tail.. I'd like something cleaner also, but not sure where to put it!

I replaced my stock antenna with a piece of fine piano(music) wire and let the steel wire exit to the bottom of the fuselage as close to the rx as possible. Then I tape the wire to the fuselage with tape.
