Guys,

just figuring out the electronics placement on this new build. The gyro tray is plenty big to accommodate both the CGY750 sensor and the SBS-01G sensor. It seems a good location for the GPS sensor as there is plenty of exposure to the sky.

Is there anything not quite correct about,

1. Co-locating these devices - electronic conflicts etc?
2. Having the CGY750 sensor offset from the longitudinal axis?

The devices are just temporarily secured with velcro.

Thanks.

Ray,

I am going to screen capture that pic and have it sent to Japan. The gyro offset does not concern me any more than having a sensor on the mainshaft versus out on the nose or tail does (meaning not at all,same principle). I do want to know if the telemetry sensor is shielded enough to not pi$$ off the gyro sensor.

I saw something similar last week, but the guy had the Gyro sensor on the bottom center of the plate.

Tanaka san is currently out of country seeing the the final details of the release of a European version Futaba radio. His reply to this query has been delayed. As soon as I know, y'all will too.

Ok Ben ... I'll hold on peeling off the double-sided tape!

Ray,

You are good to go with that mounting proximity.
