Thunder.. does your 611 sensor hit your canopy?? mine is like milimeters away from touching, and I am using the shorter posts that came with it as well... I am not using a strap to hold it down... on mine, if I used a strap it would hit...But Honey, I can't live with just stock.....

Move your canopy posts up and forward. Drill a hole inline with the 2 servo screw holes that are closest. This will fix the problem. The new frame sets already have this hole moved.

I told you it was the future........

I looked at raising the back of the canopy mounts ,but the canopy already looks like its nose down and raising the back mounts would just make this worse and also weaken the frames more at that area where the canopy mounts attach.

What I did to obtain the clearance needed was to slide the Gyro mount aft and drill two new holes in the frames above the servos.
Be careful of the start shaft.

I just did that mod will very little luck....

Sure, it gives it a little more clearence but the canopy is still in contact with the Vecro strap. Any other ideas?

I really like the new frame support boom between the canopy mount posts, that's included with the gyro plate. I have installed both, to stiffen up the rather flexible frame at those points, without moving the gyro yet.

definitely... I personally would have bought the gyro plate for that extra brace anyway... as a solution for me, I moved my sensor back to the spot above the boom mount, and left the gyro plate as a stiffening brace... if I ever get a governor, it will prolly end up there...But Honey, I can't live with just stock.....
