Fitting a RX into a Radian Pro - not a lot of space

Been trying to place a Futaba R2006GS RX into the body of a new Radian Pro. Instructions say to install the RX into the fuselage, which I assume is the air vented area behind the battery, below the wing, which has an opening plastic hatch.

This is not a large space and although the Futaba RX is not very large, by the time all the cables are added every thing is really pushed tightly into place, and against the rudder and elevator servo's which are in the same area.

Recommendations to how others have got round this would be appreciated.

My immediate thought is to put the RX in the front under the hatch. It would be directly behind the engine over the esc and battery. Using small extension cables to join everything up. I don't know if this would cause any problems.

Hi. The BNF version of the Radion Pro is very much how you describe, with the Spektrum rx, servos and wires all crammed in to the vented area. The front is for the battery, ESC and motor, so you may have trouble fitting the RX in as well without compromising access and the CG. When you get it sorted it is a nice simple glider to fly. Cheers, John.

I put the RX under where the batteries go.
