I just bought a used Raptor 90se and it has a GY611 on it. I don't like where it's mounted and want to move it.

The gyro was mounted with 2 pieces of gyro tape with a metal plate in between the 2 pieces of tape. So it's the gyro sensor, then tape, then palte, then tape, then frame.

I looked in the manual and I don't see anything that refers to this plate. I believe it shows mounting with one piece of tape just like my 401's.

Is this plate something extra or am I just missing it in the book??

Thanks for any help/

Harold

That plate comes with the 611. It's supposed to be there.

The GY611 [and 601 for that matter] come with two square pieces of gyro tape and a metal plate. It is totally normal to have the plate in between the two layers of gyro tape.

Does it mention it in the manual? I don't see it in there.

No, it does not. Every 501, 502, 601 and 611 come with a metal plate. You don't have to use them.

Thanks, I thought I had missed it. Funny that they give you a plate and don't tell you what to do with it.

Do most people use them?? And why are they needed, if you know.

Thanks

I should have looked at the FAQ's on the Futaba site first. MAybe this will help someone else.
------------------------------------------------------------

Gyros FAQ

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have my gyro mounted onto a graphite plate in my chopper and am seeing some slight drifting. Is there anything I can do about this?
Yes. We believe the graphite is slightly affecting the sensor's readings. The later shipments of GY240, 401, 502, and 601 gyros all include a small steel plate to resolve this mild drift. You mount the steel plate between 2 pieces of double-sided tape and mount the sensor onto the top side tape.

Please note that MOST helis have no need for this added plate, nor the space it takes up and added complexity of mounting as well as extra mobility of their sensor, so use it only if needed in your heli. If your GY501 did not come with a plate, please fax or mail us a copy of this FAQ with a copy of your proof of purchase for the gyro and we will send you a plate for your gyro.
