APM carrier for Hawk Sky and related planes

Inspired by the recently announced APM carrier for the Bixler, I made my own carrier for the Hawk Sky.  Build notes and more photos here:

I had my xbee mounted just like that on my carrier and the airspeed sensor went nuts. Readings jumped up and down. I have now mounted the xbee just in front of the rudder with cable running along the fuselage.

But still its a nice mod :-) And it probably weights less than the cf carrier.

Thanks Stefan... I see a lot of FPV setups also mount the transmitter as you describe.  I'll try it out and let you know how it goes.  I've also had some xbee interference issues: http://diydrones.com/forum/topics/xbee-causing-odd-servo-jitter-in-apm
