Default Receiver Mounting?

I have an AE RC10GT (pan style) which I modified the fuel tank to get more run time. The tank is now wider than before taking up more space. Now the receiver have to be mounted vertically, and the crystal and connector plugs are accessible on the side instead from the top.

On the instructions for the receiver, it says to be mounted horizontally with some cushioning to protect it from vibration. I mounted it vertically with layers of rubber material for cushioning.

Is this a bad orientation for the receiver or it does not matter.

What's do you guys think?

Thanks,

Might want to tape that crystal down to keep it from vibrating loose. The way you're mounted, if it comes loose, it's gone.

Yeah OK, I get it now, it is channel 72. Not the 72 band.
My bad.
