    Huge fan of separating components and have never had noise issues, never used filters - don't need them if you shield properly.
    Tiny OSD, a Flytrex strobe, EZUHF, etc etc.


    USB Cables are perfect for video cable (They are shielded), 1 power, 1 ground, Green for video, and white for audio (If you use it).

    None of my planes to date have had noise issues.

    you have the gps in the middle a little to the left? also, do you ground the shielding? isn't the ground wire unnecessary then?
    reading is for stupid.

    sorry to keep bugging y'all.

    my custom 60in epp wing just came from Flying Foam, and I have 4 carbon 1meterX4millimeter spars. how would you place them? does this look good? also, bo you think having the VTX ant. right next to the carbon is bad?
