the gyro mount is in stock on the elyq site, but how long before it is available to purchase and what is the price going to be?

also notice on the pdf drawing from elyq that the bracket that goes between the frames has 2 screws on each side holding it in place, where the frame only has 1 predrilled hole on each side because thats were a frame spacer is located. so that means you would have to drill another set of holes on each side of the frame and hope that they are perfect so the mount is completely flat.

i would assume that soon the side frames will be modified for this.

As the metal bracket does not support the carbon plate, I would have thought that this will vibrate if anything is not running smooth on the heli.

Very strange design and location. Would be interested to hear why they went down this route ??.

Cheers,

Simon

well, the appearance of the bracket and plate seem like a good design. i would assume the carbon plate to be 1.5-2.0mm, so the plate vibrating shouldnt be an issue. the location is pretty good as well. the closer to the center of rotation, the better a gyro seems to work (although none of us would really see a difference where its mounted). the main issue i see is that it requires holes be drilled in the frame sides by the consumer.

Personally mine seems pretty locked in with it mounted at the front. The tail is rock solid so far. It's just too close to the starter shaft in my opinion, I have to take care not to catch the anti rotation pin when starting.

Looking at the design, I can't see any reason why you couldn't mount it behind the main shaft at the back?. There is a frame spacer there for one of the mounting holes, not much difference in distance to the main shaft, and it's well out of the way.

Like you say, my flying is probably no where near high ir hard enough to see any difference.

Cheers,

Simon

i would assume that it made for the front and not the rear to keep it covered and away from exhaust. with it up front, its not gonna be in the way of the starter shaft. the guide pin is in the way more.

The mounting point out front is very flexible and vibrates a lot in flight. My GY520 wouldn't even begin to work out there no matter how hard I tried. I had to move the 520 over the tail. I do like the idea of having it under the canopy and will buy that mount when somebody in the states carries it. I could make it myself, but I don't feel like it.

I've made my own, using a crashed tail boom.

Here is how I did it: http://helinaveia.com.br/wordpress/?p=196

i would be careful with that, it doesnt seem to be very sturdy in the sense that any vibrations may resonate on that aluminum piece and cause problems.

I have been running the proto type mount for a few months now, and it works well.

The location was picked to keep it completely out of the way of fuel residue, and also to ensure rigidity.

I am not Anal about building a completely Smooth helicopter by balancing and tweaking, I fly hard 3-d and all heli's get rougher with wear, thats just a given. My heli is smooth, but may have a little shake here and again, but my Gyro has not evern been effected.

If you want my opinion on the best performing spot to put the Gyro, it would be Behind the mainshaft over the boom. I think it performs really good here, on all helicopters. Some say the closer to Main shaft the better because it relieves the gyro from having to work so hard. But I find on this Model that if you can put it around 6 to 8" away from the main shaft, It works the best. Thats just my opinion. Like I said, I run mine on the new mount and am having great success with it.

Also if you mount it on the boom, It will fill with Fuel, I will gurarantee it, and that is costly. The new mount works great.

Hope this helps

Craig

Today I've changed from os 50 to os 55. My "solid rock" home made front moutn couldn't handle the vibration so I had to send the gyro back to it's pryor position.
