Default 2.4 receiver placement in a falcon

I am converting my falcon over to 2.4 and wasnt sure where to mount the receiver and point the antenas? Any ideas or pics would be appreciated.
thanks

What radio system? Is it the single receiver 2/4 Futaba FFAST system or a JR or Spectrum unit that also needs a satelite RX?

sorry it is a futaba. I did have the old receiver tucked into the little compartment in the nose area. I currently have the gyro on the flat open surface on the nose of the frame. I am thinking maybe of moving the gyro back inside the compartment and mounting the receiver on the flat open surface?
thanks

Yep, that is what I would do. There is a lot of room behind the throttle servo to mount the gyro, and putting the RX out front (I would also mount the RX battery under the tray and the RX on top of the tray (flat open space).

What is nice about the Futaba RX is that it is easy to get the two silver tips of the antennae at 90 degrees
