Do what pH7 says..... it is where I learned a lot of stuff.

What I do is put some foam / wetsuite material between the receiver and battery.
This keeps the vibrations isolated otherwise you will see the shaving/rubbing on each other.

Generally the battery and receiver get stacked. If you are using a governor it generally gets stacked as well. With the gyro it's another case altogether. It depends on the gyro, but it wants a good solid base so it doesn't slide around. On the Raptor I like to mount it with foam tape on the tray behind the main rotor shaft. Most helis have a gyro deck just for that reason.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it!
