Default rc truck / camera thingy...

So, I'm playing with this little rc truck, putting an x10 camera w/ pan/tilt on it... when the cam tilts I lose signal.

The transmitter and camera are on seperate boards inside the case. If I put the transmitter on the back of the truck so the antenna is constantly vertical, does anyone see any adverse reactions to this? Think the camera will handle it?

Depends on size too of your R/C. Our bots are about the size of a 18" car rim.
