Is it possible to park the FC in orbit of a ringed planet?

Is mine bad luck or is it possible at all to move the FC in the orbit of a ringed planet?
I've tried few times out in the black to move the FC in the orbit of an ice ring planet but it always say "no slot"...
When I bought it, it was parked in a ringed planet, but since then I could never do it again, so I was wondering if this works only in hand crafted planets or everywhere...
Do you have evidence that this is possible?
 
I'm not sure if its icy or not, but I moved my FC to a ringed planet (I would up between the planet and the rings). Maybe the planet has to be landable to be orbited like that?
Maybe for a gas giant you could orbit a moon of a gas giant I wonder, but not the gas giant itself.
 
My FC is parked between a gas giant and its rins. Perfect for mining Tritium, void opals, LTDs etc. The only drawback is that supercruise is affected by the planet's mass, so a journey of <30ls takes ages!

From my experience the moon is better. Otherwise the carrier ends up really deep in the gravity well and drags out supercruise time.
So far better off orbiting a moon just outside the rings (of course if the outer is a huge ring, better off between them)
