Does anyone lightly strap their GY520 down? It says not to in the manual but what do they know!

60% of the time, it works every time!

No.

While I dont think "lightly" would effect anything people get carried away, straps can transmit vibration directly to the sensor bypassing the dampening effect of mounting the sensor on foam tape.

Best just to preflight and make sure your tape isn't bad.

Ok thanks. I have a very slight twitch in the tail on my N5 and wondered if strapping it down a little would help. Guess ill recheck the balance of the fan etc.

I wouldn't strap it, but you could mount it diagonally. IE 45* off square.

If you skip me I can't play!

I used to do that 'Milton' mod couple of years ago, thought of it myself actually when there was nowhere for a velcro strap to go, just drilled a couple of holes in the frame to pass the tie wrap through. Is that blue gel stuff that Align do the same as Zeal tape?

If your using tapoe, do not strap it.
If using gel tape, you haver to or it doesnt work well.
I had a high freq vibe I could not get rid of in a 450, used Align tape and Milton mod, tail worked perfect.
Yes I kept looking to fix the heli, just saying that Milton mod and Gel strapped down does not transmit extra vibes to the gyro.

For the love of the hobby
