Default Swift 16 - Rx & Gyro Placement

Where have you guys mounted the receiver and gyro on the Swift 16? Up on the front try, near the ESC and motor or in the back of the heli near the boom? I'm thinking back there is better but would like to hear success stories of placing them up front too ...

I have always mounted my Swift 16 RX's at the back. This keeps it further away from any RF that can be emanating from the ESC or motor circuits.

I had my lipos underslung beneath the landing gear, so that gave me clearance for the esc, bec and rx. All spaced far enough that there was never any interferences.

I decided to mount the Rx underneath the tail transmission with a little custom mount plate. Hopefully the Rx will like it down there ...

Thanks guys!

I forgot about that, I installed a gyro plate on the top of the tail tranny.
