I bought a gyro on here (gy601) and the guy I bought it from did not send the metal plate for the base. I never even knw ehat it was until a friend informed me of its importance...good thing I did not run my heli with it(which I almost did). Please help me if anyone knows where to get one.

This is a standard 2mm piece of aluminum. You can actually make it yourself out of a sheet bought at the hardware store.

IIRC Align make suitable plate - or you could just cut one from some steel / brass / copper plate. I have done that in the past....

Why are you worried about using it without the plate. I believe the only reason for it is to block interference, if it's a problem on an electric heli. What kind of heli are you using it on. I and most of the guys I fly with, don't bother with it.

The plate was originally designed for use on CF frame helis were the CF was an issue. I don't use them.

The 401 does not come with the metal plate but i made all mine out of thin aluminum plate. It does make a difference,what you ned to do is turn on tx and rx and move the rudder real slow and watch the notchieness of the servo , then put he plate under the gyro and you can see how the servo smooths out. I have a 401 on 2 evo 50's and a 611 on a evo 90 with plates under all of them and they do help cut down on rf. I know some people will say it does not matter but just try it for yourself,i'm not saying you will crash if you don't have the plate but it sure makes the servo smoother. You can get a piece of alum or steel from Lowes. If your running the gyro up front and not near the tail servo i think it will run smooth without the plate.

Why are you worried about using it without the plate.
It serves as an electromagnetic shield when the gyro is mounted around servos (i.e. on top of the servos). Other gyros (i.e. the Spartan) use the plate to actually add more mass to the gyro to help with vibration absorption.

I use a GY611 on both a Synergy and Trex 600e without the plate with no issues. My buddy doesn't use his plates either in his Trex 600e, 700, and Raptor 90SE.
