I have a KO Propo VFS-1 and I put the capacitor on top of the esc as this is what the instructions said. I'm not very original, you see.

Bottom line is you can place it wherever you want as long as the leads are hooked up correctly. I used to lay the cap alongside the ESC but with today's tight chassis that leave very little room for electronics, I lay the cap on top of the ESC itself.
