Hello Pilots,
do you put outside the fuselage your rx setelites?
Or is it safe to fly with rx and satelite inside the fiber fuse?

There is no issue with mounting the satellite(s) within the fiberglass fuse.

Thank You,
i've just have seen that in flying scale helis they use multiple satelites - but now it is clear.

Had mine inside my Staysee which has a huge amount of carbon for the windshield area, no issues.

The scale people use lots of satellites just in case. Better safe than sorry. Fiberglass is nonconductive so it does not really decrease the 2.4GHz signal. Carbon Fiber is conductive and will shield the signal so you need to thread the wires outside the fuse.

For my Staysee and Super Gracy, I put one more satellite near the tail boom, so far ok both for the range check and aerobatics.

These fuses have huge area of carbon at the front.

My BlackShark 3 is made of fibre glass so no need, meaning a standard R921 receiver is sufficient.

the quastion arrived after putting my Nova on E T-Rex. When I was flying with it on Freya I only did some static flights before.
