Default Spektrum AR620 installation questions

I got some of these to use and to replace a RX I thought was bad (it kept loosing bind on an initial flight of a new bird - scary as all get out) only to find out it was a brand new 5 cell Eneyloop battery that was bad and acting erratically. Oh well, better new stuff anyway.

However, I have a couple of questions about mounting this new RX. Clearly the button that gets pressed to bind the RX to the TX needs to be protected.

Right now I have double sided sticky tape on the back of the RX and on the face opposite the connectors holding the RX in place. I have NO confidence in that installation as sticky tape glue has been known to fail.

How is everyone else installing this RX?

Thanks for the guidance.

It only needs to be "protected" at power-on. After it's up and connected to your transmitter, nothing to worry about.

The ones I've seen are just stuck in place like like anything they would have replaced.
