Anyone with fabrication skills and/or tools that could help?

My quadcopter survived the crash today...however I don't want it to happen again.

I had a minor crash a few weeks ago when I first flew this quad, because a transmitter fell off and was dangling Apparently, the shop that built it said that they were using new, better double side tape because they'd seen issues with the tape given by DJI. So, I replaced the tape with better tape,

About a week ago, I had another crash...again because that tape detached. So, I got more double sided tape, and this time put in a secondary way if affixing it. Looks like it detached again today.

I'd love to find a way to affix this transmitter more permanently, perhaps with a metal bracket and rivets/screws...or permanent adhesivel

Anyone at the fest that might be able to help with this, since all my tools are many miles away?

Here's a picture to give you an idea of what I'm talking about.

Is there a Wal-Mart near by? go pick you up some Shoe-Goo....I use it on all my R/C electronics, much better than servo tape and it's not permanent

Though I can try that, at this point I want to affix it permanently, preferably with a metal bracket that is screwed to the frame.

Don't worry, It'll be on there mostly permanently......Its just that if you want to make changes later it can be removed(with a lot of force!)unlike epoxy or other methods of attachment. If you're looking for a quick fix to get you back in the air???

Quick fix can be done if necessary...at this point, I'm just sick & tired of the thing detaching. Thus, permanence

Especially if I'm flying this around cars and water...
