Wireless mount?

What are people using for mounting a wireless receiver on a FS7? I can't seem to find a decent mount, nor even enough suitable flat surface area for a reliable velcro short term solution. I am using the XDCA mount on the rear. Ideally, I'd love to mount the receiver (Lectrosonics dual channel w/ sled) just in front of the XDCA on the side of the body. Any suggestions? I am using the Zacuto base plate.
Thanks

As it so happens, I made a video about this exact topic months ago. I still use and recommend this solution.

Re: Wireless mount?

Here are a few ways I do it, I also use shoe mount at times.

These parts are 3D printed...

Re: Wireless mount?

Thanks for the suggestions.... I had already considered a mini ballhead on the rear hot shoe thread, which I'll probably end up doing for the short term. However I'm a tall guy, and don't like the wireless receiver sticking up that far on the camera.... I know I'll take it out on a door frame eventually! I like the 3D printed items though, that opens up a whole new realm!

Re: Wireless mount?

I'm using a couple of cold-shoe mounts:

With a couple of 1/4-20 "close" screws (threads on both sides) attaching them to the handle.

I have several of them attached - I just put the wireless wherever they'll fit in the configuration I'm using.
