I used silicone to put them down, if needed to take back up easy to release

Yep silicon. When you want to remove, use dental floss and cut thru it by pulling from one end.

I prefer to silicon a radio box tray to the hull and use cup hooks and rubber bands to hold the radio box in place.

This is for a gas set up. Will silicone be able to stand the torque of the motor and servos?

Build a wood cofferdam (spelling) around the base of the box with hardwood, epoxy down in place.

This will keep the box from moving side to side or for & aft,

Put 4 cup hooks down into the hardwood base.

Rubber bands over the top to hold it in place

Sikaflex is awesome and very strong, yet will flex with hull movements.
