This is how I mount mine. The plastic came from scrap canopy material for an airplane's clear canopy. It is a little thin. You could use something thicker. The plastic is glued to the surface of the radio tray up front and then the satellite receiver is double sided servo taped to the front.

My resident heli expert told me that the satellite receiver should be positioned so that the antenna is perpendicular to the antenna on the main receiver. Your's appears to be parallel. I wonder how much difference this actually makes.

+1. Even the instruction manual recommends that.
