I've been looking at the manual for the 90, (in anticipation of my build), and was wondering where to mount the FBL control unit. Will the (Optional tray CNC R90N825-SS) shown on page 17 of the manual, be offered in the FBL kit?
If not, I don't see any flat areas to mount the FBL unit on, except for mounting at the rear of the frame at the start of the boom, and that will be a PITA with all the wires.
The area for the gyro in the manual, looks too small for a FBL unit and all of the wires.

Anyone got any ideas!

Yes, I believe the optional tray is going to be included and that is where I mounted a Spartan 760 in one of our Vel 90's and I think that is where Alvin mounted his Skookum 720 on his.

There is a spot on the radio tray right in front of that CNC plate that kind of cut's down and it's a solid mount and the sk720 fit's perfect when turned 90 degrees.

I will be using a BeastX, which although can be mounted on it's side, cannot be turned 90 degrees. It must follow a line from nose to tail ie wires facing nose or tail only.
Hopefully the cnc plate is included, as this position seems to be my only mounting option.

I believe the cnc plate is included in the production kits "optional" being if you want to install it or not. It's Simply a stiffener for the top portion of the frame.
