i cant imagine any sort of radio interference but its possible, as i said range check it make sure it comes out 100%.

make sure it doesnt hit any linkages, make sure none of the wires are loose enough to wrap around any linkages and make sure its secure and wont come off during flight.

That glow wire more than likely runs on a couple of houndred volts which is converted from your 9v battery by that black box ( converter ).
So you have a wire going all around your canopy with a few houndred volts going tru it and that is not suppose to effect and RF?
Don't worry. There is a lot of helis out there with a lot more of that stuff on them and they are OK.
Do a range check with aerial down as spritefiend said.
I would put velcro on your 9v battery and converter box. Might save you canopy in an event and also save weight when you want to fly day time.
Best of luck.....

I have a similar setup except that the two inverters and battery are on the outside of the canopy.
I have 20 feet of wire powered by 2 inverters and one battery just for the canopy.
I have another 20 feet of wire 2 more inverters and a battery for the tail.

It looks ugly in the light but noone will ever se it at night.

The only glitches that I have had were caused by a dicontinuity of flow and signal procesing from eye to brain to finger. Thats a tough glitch to find and fix.


The Glowire brand inverters put out 120VAC @4,000 Hz.

HEHE
That is an old pic, I have since added more stuff, and have plans for even more stuff.
It sure looks purdy in the air though.
I do not like the Velcro to hold things on.
I have seen Velcro let go under hi G loading and the inverter go through the blades. .
I have planted this canopy 3 times now and never had any issues with the batteries or inverters coming off, being damaged, or causing any additional damage. One of these crashes was good enough to win the most spectacular crash award at a large FF.
