Default Suggestions for mounting Beastx on 450 Sport V2

Looking for suggestions on mounting a Beastx on a 450 Sport V2. Not sure if the servos fail as often as on a Blade 300 so getting to plugs is a concern and have to be able to program. I found a after market gyro/anti rotation mount for the pro but not the sport.

Any help would be appreciated. I want to do it right.

You can mount the BeastX side way. I have a couple of heli with BeastX mounted on the side frame. It may not be the most ideal place to have FBL unit, but BeastX is ptobably one of very few FBL unit that you can mount side way. Also you can mount it on gyro tray or remove the gyro tray and mount it on the bottom frame.

As long as you have decent servos, servos last a lot longer than Elite servos. Make sure servos are not binding and set it up for correct frequency as recommended by BeastX.

This is how it was done on a used Sport that I bought, the previous owner had drilled extra holes to move the gyro plate down
If I was doing it, I'd move the plate up, mount the BX facing down


I wouldn't worry about access to the connections, it's just a case of a few screws to pull the plate and BX out

I've had good luck mounting tail gyros and beast x's on the frame bottom, upside down. Makes it easy to get the device right under the main shaft, which is really where they all belong.

I spent months deciding on a FBL controler, got the ar7200bx, put it on right side of frame, no problems. Later will go in huey fuse.Ws

I've put my 3gx on the receiver plate bottom, upside down, sticking out a bit so I have access to all side ports.

Default Thanks All

I have ordered a metal bottom plate and will probably mount there upside down. Once I figure something out and make it happen I will post pictures.

Thanks again.

This is how I went (posted photos on an earlier thread):

It's super easy to access. At worst I usually only have to undo the two screws furthest back so I can tilt the tray down (and thus get more access).

This worked pretty good on a 450. Top side of the bottom plate. Spartan quark gyro.
