Whadda ya think?
The AR6115e would probably be OK, if you don't plan to push the Radian very far from the field. I used to fly my Easy Glider with an AR 61XX and I push them out to where they are dots in the sky. Never had a range problem.
But standard wisdom says you want to use the AR8000.
You should have room along the wall of the nose area. I would not put it on top of the ESC. While they should not interfere with each other, putting a receiver on top of a device that emits RF noise is not a good practice.
If you want you can tape it on top of the fuselage, behind the canopy. Nothing will block its view from there.
I have done it.
