A4 - Interceptor 400 - Where/How should the gyro be mounted ?

There really 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.
