A4 - Interceptor
400 - Where/How
should the gyro be mounted ?
are no hard and fast rules to this, but I personally prefer to mount
it on top of the boom supports behind the mainshaft.
The reason for
this is that you need to be able to get at the two small control
potentiometers on the gyro, typically labelled DELAY and
LIMIT. If as is the case with some builders, it is located
inside the frame at the back of the helicopter, it is often very
difficult to access these 2 control easily.
It is a good
idea if possible to mount gyros on a good flexible base to reduce
any possible vibrations. Some provide adhesive sponge pads, others
don't. The best way is to get hold of some yourself, and then
use 2, with a 'filling' between them made of some light metal about
1mm thick. This gives by far the best damping for the gyros.
