What is the best way to mount the receiver in your plane? Mount to a wall or wrap in foam?

2.4GHz doesn't need foam
by: rcdude07

If you're running 2.4GHz RXes, you don't need to wrap them in foam. We wrap 72MHz RXes to cut down on vibration interference.

You should always secure the RX, whether this is with double sided tape or rubber banded down, that is up to you. The location in the plane is also up to you. It's recommended somewhere easily accessible if you need to remove servo wires or change out servos.

If running 2.4GHz, be sure to lay the antenna per the instructions, typically at 90* from each other. 72MHz needs the antenna to exit the plane to get a clearer signal.

Yes it'll work
by: rcdude07

Yes the RX will work in either nitro or electric. For nitro the battery plus into the battery port (batt) instead of throttle.
