Graphite will cause radio glitches when it comes in contact with radio and servo wires.
On the XXXNT the most common place for this to happen is where the antenna wire goes through the upper deck.
Here is a great mod to keep this from happening.

Drill the antenna hole in the upper deck the exact same size as the OD of your antenna.
At the point where your antenna wire exits the radio box thread it through a proper length of fuel tubing and through the upper deck and antenna tube.

Push the tube all the way through the upper deck so about 1/2 inch sticks out the bottom and secure it from coming out by pushing the fuel tube over the bottom of the antenna tube. For an added measure slip some fuel tubing over the antenna tube to secure it from the top as well. This is best done before the antenna tube is installed.
