Trex 500L Build
This is for anyone that has a Trex 500L...

The manual calls for two identical gyro mounts to be installed in the front of the heli...page 7. One near the top and one in the bottom. These nearly square mounts install with one screw towards the front on either side. The bottom one installed no problem. The top one screws in fine on the one side where it slides in but the there are two holes on the other side and neither lines up with the front screw hole in the gyro mount?

I know the frame is all squared up...everything else went in fine.

Anyone have this issue or can recommend a solution? I will call Align Monday AM but I'd like to get this build done Sunday.

Thanks....

The manual shows that only the bottom mount is screwed to the frame with one self tapper each side, the tope mount side just pinched in place.

You should also note that you need to install the tail boom mount BEFORE the two frame sides are brought together. You cannot slid it into the competed frame assembly. Ask me how I know

Thanks for the reply. Yea...it appears it was just meant to pinch in place. But it doesn't seem to hold in place very well.

Thanks again...

Definitely missing the channel the plate locates into.
