Default Neo only under motor?

Debating a Protos 380, and wondering if my only option on Neo mounting is on lower frame below motor? Canít mount behind rear servos like the old Mini Protos?

Also, if one wasnít planning to shorten Servo wires, is the power bus a worthwhile add on?

Just figuring out which motor Iím needing and might pull trigger.

My neo is mounted towards rear behind motor but Iím using a vcontrol sat with my neo. If you want to use one with built in rx you will probably need to use a micro tail servo to get the antenna to clear the motor can.

I think the 380's are typically a bit more towards nose heavy so mounting at the rear can only help.

Those pics above are how I had mine when I had a vLink Neo on as well. Worked great.

Guess you need to get rid of that heavy carbon boom and go with the cheap metal boom.
