Dynon remote magnetometer installed in upper skin directly behind aft baggage wall. Used all aluminum Huck rivets for installation to avoid errant fluxes.

This image is taken from the bottom looking up behind the aft baggage wall. The magnetometer is mounted (upright) in a flanged channel that I fabricated to match the pitch angle of the instrument panel (per Dynon instructions). I also added the lateral "L" angle stiffener in the top skin to stabilize the installation.

Steven   this looks like a great location for this unit the only thing I notice is that the unit appears to be upside down. The install instruction on page 4-1 says that the mounting tabs should be on the down side and it appears to be mounted with tabs up.  If it works in that position please post a let us know.
