Mike and others dudes,
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 :-)). Rob did you hear that? LOL

Thanks. And as clearly as It may be seen you could have still switched wires around. I don't want to take that risk..

Here are some more questions that might not have been addressed, recently...

Is it OK to COIL the antenna coax? If yes, is it better to coil near the Rx, mid point, end?

Nake, I have seen illustrations that show you shouldn't run your antenna parallel to the antenna feeds. Not sure if that is the right wording... but an example would be that your coax runs up the rudder, running "almost" parallel with the antenna feeds.

I have the antenna lead on my quadcopter coiled up right next to the Rx and the antenna 2 inches from the Rx and it's been fine so far.

Its fine to coil the antenna coax, just don't coil it tightly. I do it all the time.
