Sig somethin Xtra ARF receiver placement

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi Everyone
First post here on Rc Canada, I am getting back into RC after flying as a teen.
I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with Spektrum receivers and the Sig Somethin Xtra. I am currently building my first arf and I am struggling with the receiver and battery placement. I have a Spektrum AR610, i am not sure where or how i should mount it. Can it be mounted vertically? should it be installed further away from the engine to reduce interference? I will be running an OS .55ax. Attached is a picture of my plane so far.
Also does anyone know if the AR610 is sufficient for a 40 sized plane. I have been debating just shelving the 610 and purchasing a AR6210 with a satellite antenna.

Thank you for taking the time to help me out, it's much appreciated!

Not at spectrum guy as well. I would install the receiver in front of the servo tray. Then use the battery to balance the plane.
The 610 looks to me that it would be fine. The 6210 is just from from what I see more sequre if getting into a a place where lots of other 2.4 traffic is. Basicly uses 2 channels to maintain the link I think
