Ok for those of you that don't know here is the low down on what happened with the extra.
At ZF we discovered that I was getting some sort of rf feedback into the fuzz and this was making life difficult for the two pcm sinthasized rx so it was deffinatly a no fly day. That same night I tried a few things but moving the one whip arial to the back of the plane seemed to help. But a my local club today when I did a range test the same happened at about 10meters away from the plane with the arial down..MMMMMM?????

So what I tried was to swop recievers from side to side and then there was no problem at all I had full range with arial down and no interference at all. The motor is running perfect and there were no other problems besides a really strong NW wind
( Gus you must having been getting awsome lift at signals ) But I decieded not to fly until I could understand what was going on inside the plane and why swopping recievers around sorted it out Im absolutly confused. Can anyone think of why this happened???

I did do some hopps on the runnway and believe me the wing-loading on this plane is freaking light it get tail up and wheels off in about 8 meters on about 30% throttle and the ballance seems good to.
