johnhuck: Very neat setup. Thinking about making my Trex 600 Nitro flybarless and using the Sk540 after hearing good things about it and because of the good working governor function. What governor are you using? I was thinking of using the Spektrum back plate sensor since that is what I am using now with my Spektrum AR7100R. Thanks.

I have the Align sensor on it, it was already on so I used it. swapped wires red and black. The gov is simple, I also have the Vbar. the SK540 is a lot nicer to work with when it comes to the Gov.

One other question. Did you use the SK 540 stock mounting tape on your nitros or some other. Just trying to get a feel for everthing before I order. Thanks again.

3M Scotch 4011
http://www.uline.com/Product/Detail...ing-Tape-1-x-60
This is the gray stuff with red release liner easy to find at home depot's.
Works well for me. I've used it on Nitro and electric.

3M Scotch 4010
http://www.stationeryart.com/scotch...ible-p-940.html
Some prefer the clear stuff. It's very firm. More difficult to come by. I have trouble even finding information on it. I think this is it.

What is the objetctive behind the specific tape is it to keep it firm ? as opposed the one you get with the unit.

stock tape completely blows..
will give you nasty flight characteristics..
wobbles and other nastiness same crappy tape they send with the beastx.

dump it in the bin right away.
the 3M tape I use on BeastX, 540s, and blue+ Vbars with great success.

and yes this gyro likes to be firm mounted basically a hard mount.
electrics with low vibes 1 layer works fantastic.

1 layer of grey 3M tape - no other vibration isolation.

I found that two layers worked better on my Rex 600 and also with my blue line Vbar on my Vision 50.
