Look no further.

First you shouldn't use PCM while setting up, because it will mask any type of problem when they are small.

Once everything is OK then if you insist on going with PCM, then by all mean fgo for it.

Now, keep the receiver, its battery, switch in the middle of the airplane, as for the engine compartment, that's where you would want the ignition battery, its switch, ignition module etc. and you should be OK,
Now, don't put a metal push rod from the throttle servo to the carburator.

Use a nyrod or such so as not to conduct electric interference.

Hope this helps
