    I wonder about the mast clamp so far in the rear. Isn't that a lot of torque? Why not put the clamp in the middle where the antenna balances? Could use non-conductive mast, or maybe conductive is ok with a quad.

    Or, perhaps a counterweight hanging off the back.

    Anyways, nice clean construction. Tell us how it performs.

    hmmm, thinking of adding 70cm to my 4 ele 2M quad thats sitting idle in this mornings snow.
    It would make a nice portable antenna
    Imagining the antenna on a tripod with a counterbalance weight, the tripod would likely collapse :D:D
    Might add a mount at the balance point with some white plastic water pipe
