Why would they do something like that?

A put a ruler against e back if the vBar too and it's perpendicular to the longitudinal axis,

They're thin and easy to slip into tight spaces and I find that it's a bit easier to double-side tape them down to form a little sensor "parking space" that the V-Bar just slides into.

Great ideas. I wound up cutting up my old SAMs club card to fit the contour inside the frame. I put the sensor as far right as possible because I just switched to FASST SBUS and wanted room on the shelf for the RX too. For now I have a big 8 channel up the, but I have 3 of the 3/18 channels RXs on order to drop in.
