I don't think it would short anything out but I also think it wouldn't provide enough vibration isolation between the motor and the receiver board. Thick, double sided tape would work better.

If you've ever done any vibration testing you would know that as the frequency goes up the amplitude goes down for the same g load. A brushless motor operates by pulsing the motor several times during one rotation which appears to be smooth but is actually many little shocks. That means you get small vibrations but they are still perceptible to electronics.
