Yeah Man, looking great. Like it was meant to be.

It's only needed if you choose the full size Vbar though. If you have a miniV or BeastX its not really required.

Looks good, going to keep mine as is for now but if I end up doing a rebuild may go this route.

Dang. That's a great mod, and easy to implement.

I may try that with my 7HV to deal with the Skookum power-bus. I'm still not happy with the powerbus on back side of that frame. This might be a good solution.

I like yours Anti Taco! Looks pro. I still vote for sensor on bottom. You want to access the connections for on-going tuning - at least for the mini-USB

Actually Mounting the main unit box where all the Servos plug into doesn't matter if its on top or bottom cause the USB port will be facing backwards so its always easy to just plug in and do some fine tuning.....Im just worried about any kind of damage happening to what ever gets mounted on top....I had issues on my 6HV were in crashed the dam main sensor getting ripped right off the heli and damaging it ....and Heathy just had a crash with his 7hv and the dam skookum got ripped off and that sucker is well protected i would think (Pic Below) so its a hard decision.... maybe i gotta make a Third Gyro spot to put another layer of protection LOL.....
