Looking for suggestions on an alternative mountain tape for futaba gyros specifically the 401 and 520. It is a pain to order 3 at a time not to mention the cost and plush they only sell 1 type. They don't offer the thicker smaller one that comes with the 520. Any alternatives out there found to be successful?

Good link, thanks. I would like to see if there something that can be used from the local hardware or home rePair store as opposed to ordering somethig.

Cool, thanks. Does it work as good as the lead deal or am I still better off buying the regular futaba pads?

3m 4408 works well for either of those gyros.

Try the 59XX series 3M VHB tapes. I use product no. 5952 (1.0mm) shown in the link provided. The 59xx series comes in three thicknesses from 0.6mm to 1.6mm. Word of caution - these VHB tapes are amazingly strong. Once you mount something with it, you can't just pull it back off. Some fishing line works to cut through the acrylic foam substrate, but it's not easy either.
