In my Freya, the ideal mounting position for my gyro is behind the govenor, is this ok, or does the gyro need to see in front of it or something like that. Thanks, Daz...

Hey Daz, I remember reading in either the GV-1 or the 401/502/601 instructions to mount the sensor for the gyro at least 1" away from the GV-1 due to the possiblty of interference. On the 401 this would be the whole gyro unit, on the 502/601 it would only pretain to the sensor itself, not the "brain box". Other than that the 401 won't care where you mount it as long as it's secure and not exposed to a lot of fuel spray! I find the tray on my Futuras has a cool little place just right for the sensor, on the Scoobies we put them on the little shelf behind the M/R on top of the frames! You might want to use better double sided tape than comes with the GY series of gyros...IMPO it ain't the best ( but the gyros are ) !!! Chris

Kurt, yes I put the governor on top of Rx, and battery. The 401 is mounted on top of frame, on the frame by itself. Thanks, Daz...
