Inverted gyro mount on EVO 50
OK, here's the situation.

I have the Infinovation T/R servo mount on my EVO 50 which moves the gyro to the front of the heli. I'm in the process of rebuilding after an ugly crash (and I mean ugly) which got the gyro and destroyed the servo tray along two out of the three cyclic servos and stripped the gears in the throttle servo. The gyro was a costly item and I'd like to find a way to protect it a bit better. On my T-Rex I have an inverted gyro mount and this does the trick for protecting the gyro in a crash.

Now for the obvious question...Has anyone tried this before on the EVO?? There is a nice area under the boom mount that should be perfect if I can get a wrap of velcro around it to ensure a secure mounting. I'd love to find that others have already gone there before me so I'm not blazing a new trail off a cliff here.

Thanks,
Ralph W.

Spritefiend,

Yep...SWM is my setup. All the helis I've got are ccpm machines.

I guess I should have been a bit more specific with the request...I know the gyro will work, but I was concerned about potential vibration issues (if I get a wrap of velcro around it) and a secure mounting scheme if I can't (get the strip of velcro wrap).

ahhh i see in that case i cant help ;D

it would seem you want to stick with keeping your gyro behind the main shaft also..

like is showed in that photo, its possible to use the empty space available because of the ccpm setup, and could help protect the gyro a little better IF you dont end up going with the behind the tail mounting..

Spritefiend,

I just finished going through your gallery...it took me a couple of minutes of staring at the photo you posted to get the point (not the sharpest tool in the shed tonight ). I see now that you moved your gyro sensor into the vacant servo hole...I'll have give that a try. I'm using a 401 so I don't know what the clearance is but it's sure worth a look...

Thanks a bunch!!

ahh lol ok no problem...

i figured it was the behind the main shaft in front of the main shaft argument people get into that had you wanting it in the back

i cant say 100% but i seem to remember trying a 401 in there before i went up to a 502 and it fit..

Its a VERY tight fit with the 401. I had to move mine due to intereference with the 9252 servos, so I am back to the rear mount.Walk on water long enough, eventually you will get your feet wet.
