    If you don't care about the looks of all of the wires everywhere, you can put it on the top, right side up. This will allow easier access to the button to program the gyro. However, if you are like me and you want the cleanest looking helicopter possible, then mount it under the heli. this is the way I do all of mine if I can. But ultimately, it's up to you.

    Let us know what you think about the Dom, I have not had the pleasure of seeing one in person yet.

    Ha ha yeeh I to am big on the looks and clean lines , The Dom is for sure an amazing kit to build and look at , either way I'm going to have wires though as I'm gonna probably mount the reciever on top as I'm not gonna use sats , what do think about using a regular reciever aposed to sats?

    If you are using a 6ch Tx, then you don't have a choice but to use the Rx. However, if you are using a Tx with 7+ channels, then I HIGHLY suggest using satellites. Much cleaner, half of the wires, less chance of wire damage and less things to go wrong. It all boils down to KISS. Keep It Simple S***** (not calling you that, but that is what it means lol).

    As Tony has said already the heli looks great,

    As for the receiver on top, I personally would only do that if the wires go into a side of the receiver, as I used a Spektrum rx on mine the wires go into it from the top, so I did not like the fact they would be sticking upwards towards the rotor disc, just my 2 cents

    Hope it helps your thought process, build looks sweet though.......

    Hey there Andy! I'm loving the build so far. Keep the pictures coming. I'd like to ask...what pinion is being used on this heli? I was just wondering if there was a difference between the 3S setup and the new 6S setup.
