Canomod Carbon Canopy
Has anyone tried the Canomod full carbon canopy with their e700? I just bought one, but then thought, what about the carbon interfering with the radio? Anyone had any issues with signal attenuation?

I know a carbon windshield on a glass canopy won't cause problems with FASST.

Ben I second that. My Hirobo EXWC has quite a bit of carbon on the canopy and no issue with FASST either.

Here's the response from Canomod that I got,"Carbon fiber blocks 2.4GHz radio signals. It is therefore important you position your receiver antennas outside the canopy. This may necessitate longer antenna leads as necessary. Please complete a full range test before flying. This is an issue with all 2.4g systems…. JR, Futaba, Spektrum, etc….. and when using S-Bus also."

I think Futaba do longer antennas: HSP79766 ANT 400MM. I might try those.
