Default Which channel to add battery to?

For the first time I find myself in a situation to use a "y" connector to supply power to the rx. Is there a preferred channel or is it "put it where it fits"?

put it where it fits pretty much says it all... although technically if you are drawing lots of current it would be best to put it inbetween whatever servos are drawing the most, or in general just in the center. the reasoning for this is that the +/- lines just form a buss under the connectors, if you have the battery at one end the tiny trace right next to the battery connector has to deal with the full current, whereas if it is in the center the connector pins will hit the traces going in two directions.
