I saw your same post on the Spektrum forum.

You have a Raptor 50 V2. And I believe you have a Spektrum AR9020, a receiver that comes with two additional satellite receivers, and a plug for a third.

The AR9020 requires at least two satellite receivers, so you will be mounting the main receiver, as well as the two satellites on your helicopter.

The Raptor 50 V2 doesn't seem to offer many locations to mount a standard receiver, let alone the AR9020 and its two satellites.

The good news is that with the satellite receivers, you can mount them anywhere, with the aid of the extension cables. Make sure you read about receiver installation and how to address the orientation of the antenna wires on the receivers.

I don't have a Raptor, perhaps others who do, will chime in.

Also, don't fall for the "urban myth" that a satellite RX has only 1 "active" antenna element.

As long as your satellite RXs are oriented such that their dipole antenna elements are orthogonal....you should be fine.

one quick note,, try to remmber that carbon fiber (cf) blocks radio waves,, so its ideal to place the remote reciver outside of the frame , as opposed to inside underneath something

going pro , one crash at a time

in other words , ee means ,
if your sats are pointed so they are bidirectional, than it dont matter where you place them ,,rather how ( ie.. one pointed up/dwn,, other left/right)

going pro , one crash at a time

The Raptor 50V2 is not a carbon fiber heli. It's a plastic fantastic frame.

Mount the main receiver and two satellites where they will fit while keeping the antenna whiskers on the satellites at 90 degrees to each other, and separated by more than 2.5 inches.

Take care to carefully support the little cables and give the little connectors just a bit of slack -- you'll have no problems.

Stay away from carbon fiber canopies.
