    Hi All...
    I am mounting 2 LED strobes, 1 under each front motor, which will powered by small 2 cell lipo. The wires will run from the battery up the landing gear and go inside out the motor arms. The wires will be touching the antennas. Will they interfere with the antenna and the signal ? Thanks In Advance !

    They will not interfere with the antennas, but will screw up the compass.

    No, only if you run the wires along the leg with the compass.
