    Mounted the Marco Polo tracker on a small 0.040" piece of angled aluminum with the included Velcro. The aluminum angle is mounted to the gibal guard with sticky foam. Weight of the aluminum is 0.2 oz. (6 grams). Where are others mounting theirs?

    Think I would have mounted it to the gimbal guard instead of adding more weight with the aluminum 90° angle.

    The alloy bracket is only 6 grams in weight. The antenna of the tag needs to be vertical.

    I would have liked to mount it there, but the VTX and Flytrex board take up all of the room under there.
