Default Repair of GPS mast

Hi guys,
I am new here and I would like to share my experience with my Blade 350 QX 3.
On its first
Drone Blade 350 QX3 - Ribeirão Preto (3 min 59 sec)
it crashed with a tree and the GPS mast was broken. Since then I am avoiding handling with the mast and I keep it in the lower position even when I am flying. I tried to repair using a super glue but the plastic was becoming brittle due to its fragility.
I contacted Blade support asking if I could rearrange the position of the GPS and they answered that there was no problem.
So, I am sharing the pictures I took of this repairment.
I hope it can help someone.

This is a much better solution than most of what I've seen on here, but still keeps the antenna.

Just some quick advice; if that top ever snaps and breaks as well, consider just doing away with the GPS mast altogether. Put the GPS in one of the arms. This is how it was with 350qx2 and it was just fine as long as you were not running a GoPro camera. Far less of a liability.
