Hi Noob flyer,
Place your Battery at the bottom of the wing as far forward of the wing as possible. RX is placed on the top of the wing. ESC's next to the motors and expose the heatsink to the outside air for cooling. Do not cover your ESC with depron, foam (sheeting). You can cover it with light fibreglass or just mount the ESC somehow so that it doesn't fall out. Recommended CofG shown as well on the drawing, 180mm from back of wing.
