I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

Mid build of a HK250GT and fitting the gyro - or trying to.
Im using a standard square box type from Giant Cod which is mm's too big to fit in the rx space. Anyone know where else I can fit it effectively?

Anyone says "Up my chuff box" is going to get a pop in the chops!

There any issue with function, mounting these sideways or even upside down?

So long as the "axis" that the gyro senses in, is correctly orientated (i.e. parallel with the mainshaft) you can mount a gyro any way you like. You will more than likely need some isolation or damping of vibration (hence the thick foam pads) to prevent tail wag and other un wanted actions, and you will also need to make sure that the leads in and out of the gyro are supported well enough so they don't flap around, but are not supported so much as it feeds vibration into the gyro.

There are one or two gyros on the market that need to be mounted on a vertical plane like on the frames.(A big no no with any other gyro)
Upside down is fine,you may need to reverse the gyro direction on top of the gyro and reverse the rudder channel and you're good to go.
It's also worth putting a velcro strap to wrap wround the gyro but don't pull it too tight,just enough to help the gyro pad keep it in when you start doing 3D. Smile

Cheers all, Will look at it tonight hopefully.
Didnt think about using velcro straps - thats a good call!
I was considering using a cable tie as extra support but was worried about it transferring vibrations!
