ANTENNAS. GPS Antenna

I bonded an empty plastic box on top of the canard to use as a base and elevate the GPS antenna above the surrounding metal components. I used tie wraps to keep it in place. I also used tie wrap craddles to hold the antenna cable. Notice that I bonded nylon clamps to the canard with 5-minute epoxy/microballoons mix to hold wires in place. Leaving them open gives me the ability to easily remove the trim and autopilot servo wires with the canard, when necessary.
