I'm guessing you've got some sort of hotwire tool to cut the foam?
If I cut into my foam it will just be me and the knife, and lots of snow.

Did you make the extension cable for the aerial yourself?

My hot wire tool is a hanger wire cut and shaped as needed and then heated with a butane torch.

Yes, I made the extension cable myself. Here is my build log of the SW:

Have to agree, the SW is a great FPV platform. Still flying mine after 3 years. Added a DYS gimbal this year. Here is the first test of the gimbal in action. Follow mode is engaged on the roll axis. Needs some tuning still but very impressed so far.

I have bitten the bullet and installed a Storm OSD in my faithful old Skywalker, I have also installed an "IlovetoflyFPV" GPS antenna tracker too, I feel very courageous having installed two new gismo's at the same time, Looking forward to a test flight over the coming weekend.

http://ilovetoflyfpv.com/antenna_tracker_gps.html

I have used the RSSI tracker before and had a test flight with this one, here's a look at the RSSI tracker from some months ago, based on the Boscam RC305 (can be RC302 as well) receivers, despite the lack of tilt (which surprises many) it works very well.

I use #64, eight of them. 4 crossed, 4 front to back. I change them as soon as they get dry or stay stretched out.

Had a fun flight over a river last weekend with some friends. Though we lost each other after takeoff, we went for it anyway.

Coming to grips with a new antenna tracker a GPS one from IlovetoflyFPV and the Cyclops Storm OSD, I have some gremlins hiding in the UHF setup to chase away and all will be well.
