Default Interference problem

I'm just a casual racer, and I had some problems with my car at a friends house. I have a simple BoLink car with Futaba 2PCKA AM radio and Hitec 560 speed control. When trying to control the car, it was all jittery when it was near me, and had no control once it got about 5 feet from me. I checked to make sure there were no antenna problems, and I have capacitors on the motor. His house is right near O'Hare airport, and someone told me that could be the cause of the interference. Does anyone have any thought on this? The car only did it there, never before and never since

If you checked all the electrics, no bare spots in any wires,then bring car back to your buddy's house and try it again. If it only does it there,(glichs) then you know it was interference. If it dosen't do it you may have fixed problem (moving the wire away from what ever it was touching.Also make sure that you didn't have to much oil on comm.(clean motor). Hope this helps you out.
