Thanks for info - I'm trying to picture your set-up in my mind. Would love to see a pic if you have one handy.

That's good to hear! I just need to be careful when drilling the mounting holes because the headphone wires run through that area.
Or maybe I can find an amazingly strong double-sided adhesive to use instead of the screws.

What brand sticky tape did you use? I may be able to use it to avoid drilling and screwing a ball mount to the framing.

I did not want to drill that area either. I made what I would call a C-clamp out of wood, but it doesn't actually squeeze the frame, it is just super close and it is actually double sticky taped to the frame. The ram ball is then mounted to the wood. It has been holding well there for 6 years now. I am looking for a pic.

I use a RAM X-Mount in my RV-6 and also have a MyClip for use in other airplanes.

I can get a better pic eventually if you are interested. Never had an issue with it in this spot, never got in the way, and it is pretty close to my face.

edit...What brand sticky tape: Probably 3M, thin foam sticky on both sides, whatever the hardware store had.
