GY401 - R60V2 - Mounting Location

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I'm in the final stages of building a new Raptor 60, and looking at Gyro mounting options.

Is there any good reason it can't be mounted forward on the Servo Frame. There appears to be plenty of room in front of the Pitch Control Frame to safely mount it. My thinking is that with the gyro under the canopy it will stay cleaner, there will be no need to string and secure wires to behind the mast and possibly there is an opportunity to shorten the wiring some. I also assume the orientation would be the same as behind the mast.

Thoughts, opinions and experiences would be most appreciated.

Good communication is as stimulating as black coffee and just as hard to sleep after...

There is no reason why it cannot be mounted there, provided the servo lead from the gyro reaches the T/R servo... are you using a boom mounted T/R servo??

Hi Harry,

You will have no problem mounting the gyro on the front of the frame. It is actually a preferred location for most Raptor flyers because it helps to keep the exhaust and oil residue out of the gyro. Orientation is the same. If you need any help with the new beast, PM me and we can set something up.
