Help!
t-rex 800 dfc electronics placement ?

This is my first 800 size heli, upon some research i find that some people prefer to put the esc on the tail where the gyro usually goes, for me placing electronics is a hard choice, can anyone tell me how they place their electronics on the t-rex and why they think it's the best way ?

Currently the heli has the fbl unit + esc upfront, everything fits neatly opposite each other(i bought the heli like this) but that is what concerns me, the esc is practically right opposite the main fbl controller, then i have to install the gryphon and it's switch, but where ? Please can anyone describe or perhaps have a picture to show i really want to get this heli flying !

I dont have the 800 but i have the 600 which is the same layout. I'd just leave it all where it is. There in no problem with the ESC sitting just ahead of the FBL.

the Gryphon BEC should be able to be mounted on the side of the plastic 'beak' (the same 'beak' that the ESC sits on top of)
