Hi there,

Just a couple of quick questions…..

1.How many of the double sided sticky pads should I use to stick the gyro on ? It shows one in a diagram in the instructions but you get three in the box. Should I use one or three on top of each other ?

2.Does it matter which way around it is mounted ? I know the base should be at right angles to the mast, but the instructions don’t say anything else. Which way should the wires coming out of the gyro be pointing ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

1 pad, the gyro can be mounted anyway as long as it is 90degs to the mainshaft.

I highly suggest you use something other than the double sided tape provided by futaba. Personaly, I have had problem with it ripping off during flight (well on my eco 8). My combo came with these double sided tape from a company called "Twin Stick" and it works great and is almost impossible to take out. (which can be a bad thing and a good thing). If you do happen to take it out, it will leave that dirty messy look were the foam is all ripped apart and its very hard to get out unless you use sometype of removing solution. Well just my opinion as these are holding very well for me. Gone through 5 crashes without having it ripping out. Also the good thing about this package is it includes many size of thickness. (medium should do as it should cusion the vibration but still give optimum performance).

Well, good luck!

If you have to remove the foam and adhesive left behind after removing electronics, I have found Zippo lighter fluid works very well. Put a little on the foam, let it sit for about a minute, wipe off, and repeat. It usually only take 2-3 applications to remove all traces with next to no effort. Just be sure to give the cleaned surfaces with alcohol before applying new tape.

works great and is better for absorbing vibration.

I've had no problems with the stock Futaba double-sided foam tape on six different setups. I don't know anyone I fly with that has had any problems either.

As others have said, just one piece between the gyro and frame.
