Tail mounting plate comes in three sizes for Tail bell and Transmitter use.
We are now offering a new re-designed mounting plate made from a light weight carbon plate that can be attached to the deck feathers very easily. The tail bell can be attached at the top of the plate and the transmitter is attached by pushing the transmitter spring through the tubular carbon hole on the end of the mounting plate.
Instructions for attaching a tail plate for bell & Transmitter use.
The tail plate is attached with a small peace of then leather or a plastic tie wrap around at least two center tail feather shafts. You bring the tie line from under the tail shaft around two feather shafts and then put them through the two holes in the tail plate and then tie these two ends in a knot. You then can attach a smaller bell to this leather line and then tie another knot.
This should hold the tail plate on well by doing it this way. If you have any questions please give us a call we will be glad to help.
