Turnigy 9x ISP wiring. Alternate plug location maybe?

Hi All,

Just spent some time thinking about where to locate a programming plug on my new 9x.

I didn't want the USB programmer inside the case, and ideally I'd use a 6-pin mini-din socket but
naturally don't have those handy, so I'm looking at alternatives.

Not wanting to cut into the side of the case and extrude major 'hot snot' thought this might be a better way.
Mount a plug on the PCB underneath the battery case on a small piece of plastic using 2 of the existing mounting screws and
cut a rectangle out of the battery compartment.
Anyway, thought I'd run this thought by you guys before doing too much more damage...

Just FYI, how did I locate on the PCB? The same drill I used, upside down with a small ball of BluTack attached.
