Default Align 600 T-rex questions

Hello everyone,
I've just finished building a Align T-rex 600 and have a few questions as i am wrapping it up.

Does the receiver need to be wrapped in foam? I know helicopters are subject to vibration, and I have the receiver and remote antenna double-sided sticky taped to the body of the helicopter. If need be I can take them off and wrap them in foam.

The supports for the tail rudder control rod move on the tail boom when the rod is worked back and forth. What is the best way to secure these without permanantly mounting them?

Thank you for any input,
Kyle

The double stick tape will be fine. I usually put a drop of CA on the support brackets. They will break loose with a little pressure if need be later for repair but will hold just fine till you need them off. I have done this for years on the tail boom.

Take a small tie wrap, push the pointy end under the rod guide between it and the boom, and cut it off. They will make the guides stay put.
