Does it matter which way you put the gyro when you put it in the front or the back of the main shaft? Another words should it face the same way ( like I had it on my Raptor 50 forword so you could read it from the back) ?? I'm sorry I'm using a 401 !!

Thanks ED and Happy Holidays to you all!!

Doesnt matter as long as its mounted flat. Otherwise how would it work the same when you're flying frontwards or backwards?

you can mount it in the front as long as the canopy doesn't hit it if your using the gyro mount. I had to mount mine on the back

I once choked a smurf to see what color it would trun

Just don't mount it on top of the two front servos if they are Digi servos your gyro won't like it.

The rate of rotation is the same irrespective of placement in the heli. The thing to watch is vibration which is your enemy so be sure to mount it on a secure platform.

And check that the Gyro's "fixing" direction is correct.
