Hey guys,

I'm getting a V-Bar unit and two remote Spektrum RX's to plug into the new V-Bar for my Logo 500.

Obviously they should be polarised.

I'm going to mount one remote RX on one of the front two cyclic servos, the other one has me a little undecided.

I can either mount it where the 4 tail boom screws are, or at the front on the frame where the lipo goes (in middle of the landing gear legs).

Or this

Ron,

I know you (and many others) mount the 2.4 Ghz satellite receivers to the side of the cyclic servos (and probably never see an issue) but... I'd be a little uncomfortable with that.

Servos can be very noisy (electronically) and that "could" affect/interact with the antennas being literally, right on the servo case.

Just a radio geek/Ham's opinion

Well they are not really directly on the servo case The Logo frames are actually in between the rx and the servo. No issues on either my 600 or my 500 (sold now ).......Ron

Yea,

I figured you guys didn't have any issues. Then again, you're running mid to high end servos.

If you ran one of the "lesser" servos, they may not be as noise-free.

No big deal. I just wanted to make mention of this as I've seen them mounted this way now for quite some time and always wondered...

Carry on...

Hi guys,

Thanks for the replies. I've had one of my remote RX's mounted where the cyclic servos are. To be honest I think servos interfere very little. The plastic of the frame won't really do much to stop noise but there is very little to begin with I feel.

A little surprised some of you are not polarising the RX's direction but if it works it works I guess.

I'm probably going to go and mount my 2nd remote RX to where the tail boom screws are in my first pic.

Like Ron and Shawn i've always mounted my satellites on near the servo.
With one of the new two sat setups one is mounted by the servo and the other is mounted on the back lower portion of where the gyro spot is.

Ron, on yours I see you have each of the two satts mounted in the same orientation next to the servos. I've always read that the satts should be mounted so their antennae are perpendicular with each other.
