One consideration though: The D-Sub mounting screws are a pain because they are up against the HS spar. You have to use a small stubby screwdriver (like a power screwdriver bit) which gets dropped into the fuselage....
If the HS spar would go ahead and crack and fall off, the D-Sub would be easier to install.

Yep, a zip tie or two will do a fine job of securing the connector without the hassle of screws. Matter of fact, my mag is secured to its mounting bracket with (non-ferrous) zip ties.
