this is just a suggestion and probably wont help but you can get the spektrum sensor that goes on the backplate and get the adapter for the gv-1 from this site below

man thats cool, wish I would have know about this before. something for upgrade later

Anyone have a pic or can explain, the only way I see to mount one is make my own but surely this thing was designed to support it.

I have the GV1 on mine.
I used the stock Align plastic gov mount included with the kit.
That mounts on the RHS frame just above the clutch bell.
First thing you need to do is mount the sensor to the plastic bracket with 2 screws (they arent in the kit lol)
Before you mount the bracket and sensor to the frame, dummy fit the bracket and see how much gap you will end up with between the sensor and magnets.
Adjust sensor accordingly and mount to frame.
Kinda hard to take a pic of mine once its mounted.
I fiddled around with mine a bit before I worked out how it was meant to go.
So yeah, the manual is lacking in this part.

For the love of the hobby
