If the gyro detects tail movement based on it's own rotation about it's center axis, then close to the main shaft would be maximum rotation and away from the center axis would mean more lateral movement and decrease rotation about the center axis of the gyro. Then would it make the gyro more sensitive by placing it on the bottom plate under the main shaft?

it doesn't though. it measures angular velocity or acceleration which is the same any place on the machine.

Also, if the heli rotates 15 degrees, it rotates 15 degrees both under the mainshaft and on the tail. Rotation is the same no matter where the gyro is put. The only difference is there'll be more lateral movement further from the main shaft. Which the gyro doesn't care about.

If it can't hover, it ain't worth flying.

Hehe, I used to think the same, but it doesn't matter where it is on the heli as long as it's not vibrating and is at a right angle to the main shaft.

If the helicopter is rotating about the main shaft faster than the tail is rotating, that usually means you're doing the chicken dance and the tail has already been discarded

Seriously, think about it, if the gyro cared about lateral movement you wouldn't be able to fly forwards, backwards, or sideways and have the gyro still work.
