Mine just barely clears with the 611 on top of the servos so it would definitely touch on the new mount. It seems fine on the servos.

The mount comes with different rear canopy stand-offs. They are shorter which allows just enough clearance for the gyro.

I moved the gyro plate aft just a little and drilled new holes .just becareful of the start shaft.

I looked at raising the back of the canopy mounts ,but the canopy already looks like its nose down and raising the back mounts would just make this worse and also weaken the frames more at that area where the canopy mounts attach.

What I did to obtain the clearance needed was to slide the Gyro mount aft and drill two new holes in the frames above the servos.
Be careful of the start shaft.

Mine was so close even with the new canopy mounts that any flex in the air would affect it, not to mention scuff the sensor, so I moved mine back to on top of the boom mount....

But Honey, I can't live with just stock.....

I've seen two canopy mount points on the frames. One is behind the servo like Ozydego pic. The other drills the holes above the servo, this combined with the shorter canopy standoffs should give enough clearance.

Not a close up pic but you can see how my standoffs are above the servo...

I think they are a waste of cash ! and time fitting them why fit them if the sensor rubs on the canopy !

I fitted the gyro mount because it came with the frame stiffener, and also because the gyro mount itself strengthens too....

But Honey, I can't live with just stock.....

heres what i did. Drilled holes just above the servo mount holes and used that chassis brace in the old holes.I also used the original canopy mounts in metal instead of the short plastic ones. Worked great and real sturdy!
