Don't forget that stabilizer receivers with gyros need to be firmly mounted. So no velcro or thick foam for that type.

Re: Mounting recievers

Yeah, For gyros and stabilizers it should be firmly mounted. I am just using standard full range receivers.

I know that futaba say not mount receivers in foam, but I am not wrapping them in foam, just putting some foam under the rx. This way I should still get good cooling, as well as some protection from vibration. Of course, these modern receivers are not as prone to vibration, but I still prefer to have some protection.

Re: Mounting recievers

Another trick I found works well is to spread a flat even layer of 5 minute epoxy on the wood where the rx will be positioned. This give a good surface for either double sided tape or velcro to adhere to.
Crashing closer to the runway is a type of improvement.

Re: Mounting recievers

I like to back my receivers with foam and strap them in place with velcro. If there are no access points for the velcro to pass through, I often make a little tray and glue it in place.
