I am almost finished rebuilding the Belt CP with a carbon fiber frame and all the purple stuff. I can't figure how to install the slotted gyro deck above the tail boom mount. It fits nicely on top of the mounting system for the tail boom but I can't figue out how to get it to stay put. It's probably obvious but not to me. BTW as nice as the frame is there are no instructions with this thing and when there was a 50/50 chance to install something right, I installed it wrong 100% of the time. Directions would have been nice and who would not have expected them anyway? Thanks guys!

Nobody has had a similar problem? It's hard to understand that someone here has not had the same question. Somebody? I drilled two small holes in the CF frame under the tail boom and ran a cable tie through the holes and over the gyro. The deck (purple metal) that the gyro mounts to has it's bottom machined to fit perfectly over the tail boom mounts. Problem is that I can't figure how to keep it there so I tied it down after attaching the gyro to the mount with mounting tape. Better ideas?

Looks like the CF frame assembly instructions are toward the end of the updated Belt manual. Unfortunately they show the plastic boom block with integrated gyro platform.

I assume its these pieces you are talking about? Are there screw holes on the tops or bottoms of the boom clamps?

Hi Greg
The instructions for the plastic parts do not apply to this question and as I have said already, there was no diagrams or anything that came with the set. Yes the parts that you show in the photo are the parts that I have and still can't figure out how that deck is supposed to attach. Do you know what holds it down? Thanks.

Sorry Bob, I've only seen it in pictures. Other than the slots, are there any holes in the gyro platform? Does it fit snugly between the frame? Might be worth playing with some servo tape if it will fit between on the sides between the frame and the platform.

Tried servo mounting tape, ca glue, didn't hold well enough. The bottom of the deck has slots machined out(cnc) so that the deck fits precisely on the boom mounts. The sides of the CF frame kinda sorta hold the deck down a little bit. Certainly not enough to feel confident flying it that way. I'm surprised that no one else here has not found the same part to be a problem.
