where is everybody mounting their gyro. There doesn't seem
to be any room on the radio tray. Is the spot in front of the starter shaft
really a gyro tray, that's what i've read on other post. also is anybody
having to add weight to balance their heli.

gyro...
Stephen,

I hope all has been well with you lately. You mentioned that you have your gyro mounted on the aft portion of the radio tray... this places your throttle servo (and since you have a falcon.... your other flight control servos) in very close proximity to your gyro. Has this ever caused issues with RF interference with you?

I have read that it is wise to keep the guro as far from electric motors as possible (especially servos) because they like to "dirty" the signal somewhat.

Please advise... thanks.

Never Leave Your Wingman!!!
The models will (and normally do) follow me everywhere....
