The foam reduces the amount of vibration seen by the receiver. Vibration is the enemy of circuit boards.

oh but isn't the spektrum suppose to eliminate any of those. so it's better to have some sort of foam around it? why it does not apply to esc?

I velcro mine on my 450 and 600, which gives sufficient dampening for an electric helicopter.

It's easy to find an excuse to do wrong. Hard is not to find an excuse to do right.

The ESC generates heat, which would melt the foam. Since the receiver does not generate any heat, it is a prime canidate for the padding. Goop is a good method for the attachment of the ESC to the frame since it is a rubberized adhesive that will absorb quite a bit of vigration.

Foam for my RX on the 600 - you can hide the loose wires in it -- Velcro for the esc and gyro amp.

If it's not fun, your not doing it right !
