Mr Mel's Alignment tool is awesome!
I know a lot of you haven't seen MrMel's videos on vBar setup, and this is something you may be missing out on. He shows how he uses Legos to make a tool to precisely align the Vbar sensor on the heli.

I've never done it before, since the Vbar sensor is pretty large and I've never had much difficulty with it. However, installing the CGY750 with its tiny sensor and beveled edges was different, I didn't feel comfortable with my ability to get it perfectly aligned.

So off to Walmart to buy some Legos (Stupidly I gave mine away back in the early 90s when I was in high school), and my sonsor is in perfect alignment. It keys to the side and back of the gyro tray in my Furion, so now the sensor is perfectly aligned.

Check it out, thanks for the tip, MrMel!

Oh, there's no doubt about that. I could have gotten a little $6 kit, but I bought a big $30 500pc set instead.

My kid and I are going to do some building when we get home from the field today.
