It actaully doesn't matter which you connect first as the ESC's will not arm unless they have an RX throttle signal anyway. So the motors won't start. And even with a signal (of wherever it might come from), it has to be at the low/zero end (of throttle value) for it to arm still anyway.

But, seeing it is just as easy to do it either way, it has to be that little bit safer to do the RX first!! Just in case something goes strangely amiss in the ESC and it does start up at 100% throttle!
I have never seen it, or heard of it, but it is technically possible.... so you may as well remove that potential risk.
