Trying to decide where on the heli I want to mount my radio equipment and route the wiring, was wondering if some of you could post some pics of your helis so I can get some Ideas and make my mind up

I can only upload one pic. I run the esc up front, flip the center mount to mount the reciever & mount the gyro on the bottom tray. All the wires are kept inside the frame.

My setup is completely "stock" with the components going where they were originally intended. This does make for getting at the GY401 dials almost impossible but the servo leads weren't long enough to swap the gyro and receiver round.

I would not mount the gyro and reciever where they were on Dr. Lodge's heli. the servo lines were tight on mine but they reached to the AR7000 on the radio tray, and I put my spartan on the boom mount. it is much neater with the rx on the receiver tray on the wires are hidden neatly in the frames. also I would mount the satellite receiver on the right side of the frame, not on the boom.

I have started putting things on the rexy, for me the best is gonna be just like the top drawing on page 21 of the manual, most of the wire will be neatly zip tied in beetween the frames and the esc will also be in between the frames and under thr battery tray, this way it will be a good distance from the reciever as well, and everything will be tucked away between the frames, the only thing I am mounting on the outside frame is the Spektrums second little reciever.

Thank you to everyone who replied to this post for the great ideas and to those of you who will continue to reply on here

Why? if you mount the satellite receiver on the side of the frame, you're effectively shielding one entire side of the receiver. When mounted on the boom it is much more open and the small wavelength of the GHz signal means that the heli body doesn't shield the signal much at all.
