Awesome new receiver 90 degree antenna holder

A friend of mine created a new 90 degree antenna holder for JR and Futaba radios. These receivers require the two antennas to be mounted 90 degrees with respect to each other to insure spherical coverage. This antenna holder does that weighs almost nothing and can be mounted in nearly any orientation to fit your plane.

I attached a pictures of the prototype installed in my plane and pictures of the final version with added tabs for mounting in any orientation.

Nice. Do the long arms need support or just the two screws at the base? How's the vibration on those long arms in a gasser.

Thanks guys.,

Zippi, the long arms do not need support.... and vibration on gassers is not an issue, being made of strong yet flexible plastic.
many pilots are using the Antenna Mounts on 40% ers.
hope that helps, let me know.
