G90 mounting on original Blade CP
I'm trying to mount a G90 gyro on a Blade CP...not CP Pro. The CP pro manual says to mount it on a gyro plate behind the rear servos...What gyro plate? Doesn't the Blade CP use the same frame as the CP Pro? The only difference I see between the EFLH1166 and the EFLH1167 is that the EFLH1166 also has the boom and tail motor mount in the package. Advice anyone?

Thanks,

Balbs

The BCP and BCPP both use the same frame now - If you haven't replaced your BCP frame with the new BCPP frame then you won't have the molded-in gyro tray - You could fashion your own gyro tray or buy the new frame with the molded-in gyro tray.

You can get the frame with or without the boom and tail box set.

With.. EFLH1166
Without.. EFLH1167

I've bought both and they are both the new BCPP frame with gyro tray now.

Looking at the pictures, the 1167 does have a longer portion in the rear for the gyro as compared to the 1166...so is the picture on Horizon's site for the 1166 the old version?
I already have (a spare) the 1166 but with the shorter no plate version I guess. Looks like I'll be getting the 1167 then.

Thanks for the help,

You probably have an old EFLH1166 as I'm pretty sure it now includes the new BCPP version frame instead of the old BCP version frame.

Yeah I got my 1166 awhile back when I first got the Blade. I wanted to make sure I had enough spare parts. Just haven't had a crash hard enough to need it....just jinxed myself

I have an original BCP and I mounted my gyro to a second battery tray that I located directly underneath the main gear, works great and doesn't affect the balance.
