Also, I'm like you in that I try to keep the antennas as far away from the ESC & motor as practical.

In my case, all my larger helis use NEO's, so the antennas are mounted in holders that attach to the boom right behind the canopy.
This is the first time I have used the telemetry receiver so I will disconnect the sat and verify that I still receive control in case I made a wrong assumption.
EDIT: I did exactly that and confirmed that I still had control with the just the telemetry receiver attached and no satellites.

I did consider a boom mount for a sat, even the tail, lol. That's actually a great place to isolate the receiver. I wasn't comfortable with running wires down the boom though.

I'm glad you said that. I was a bit sheepish about even putting in that part assuming I might be the only one that screwed it up.
