Not flown that plane, but I do have an AR6200 that I use. Just place it away from anything that can block the signal (odds on in the middle of the model or there about's), and don't forget to keep the satellite's antenna's on a different plain (90 degrees) to the antenna's on the RX itself.

I had that plane and I made a little mount for mine. The landing gear is the weak point on that plane.

not quite sure what will block the signal....and as far as 90 degrees go..let me think how to phrase this...if main and sat receivers are sitting on a table...is one receivers antennas east\west the other north/south flat on the table? or is one e/w flat on table, the other one up/down?

One set in a horizontal orientation, the other point in a vertical orientation, This video covers a lot of it off .....
