Flypoppa and Old Joe, both good ideas, however, I ended up going a different route. Since it was already bent, I decided to yank the rest off and it finally came off. With it bent, I decided to try to straighten it out and see what I could do and I got it straight so I went to finish my testing!
I have all the data I need now so it's just a matter of figuring out how to plot all the graphs to make sense.
I will say that out of the three props, I like the APC 6x4 pusher the best as it had the most power and was way more quiet than the other two. I had to swap two of the motor wires to change motor direction but it was no big deal. The RC Timer prop was loud but I think that's more of an issue with it not seating well on the prop adapter as even with the right plastic adapter to line the prop up to the prop adapter, it was still loose and probably not on true like it needed to be.
Results later.

Hey guys,
building new plane with DL and my past experience tells me to ask stupid questions first before I seal everything solid.
So here I go:
pictures of my planned set up, and concern about the GPS placement right over the DL antenna coax - problem?
Plan is to finish it all by next week so I can take it on vacation (time is tight here).

So any comments, concerns, and constructive advice will be greatly appreciated :-)

I may throw a case of beer in as a token of appreciation :-)).

If it's not two way communication between the DL Rx and Tx, then you should be fine.
Please let me know how that motor mount goes. I have a motor can from an EZ* brushed motor I'll be using to do the same thing on my other SS when I get a motor in for it.
Thanks!

He wasn't "gone". He just doesn't want to answer difficult questions. I think we got is straightened out amongst ourselves, though. BTW, this is just one kerfuffle in a very excellent thread, so overall I thank AJ for his effort!

Air intake to kep the ESC cool, since I read that it was getting hot in some of the intallations, works really good, ESC is cool even after flying her really hard, if you notice in the very first pictures there is a hole on the right side under the wing also for the air to exit the fuse.

Not sure what you mean two way communication?
DL Tx sends signal to DL Rx.
What I am concerned is that DL signal may kill GPS signal (if it is possible), but DL antenna is way on the tail so I guess GPS being just above coaxial from DL antenna should not matter any more.
