Default RDLohr's TREX 500 VBAR Mount

RDLohr’s Clearly Superior Products
TREX 500 VBAR Mount
This mount provides an additional rigid mounting surface for your VBAR, gyro, receiver, or both. (Inspired by Steven Bales)
Length 3 ”





Be very careful that all is secure. A safety strap of some kind is recommended for added security. Losing a component mid flight will make for a very challenging landing and could be dangerous!

Note: Peel protective paper off all Lexan before use (if there is any)
Note: Edges can be sanded with 220 grit sand paper if the fit is too tight or if there are rough edges or burrs.
Note: Clean any machine oil off the screws before installation
Note: For additional security, add a touch of CA when installing the screws (Optional)
Note: Reverse the “Dir” switch on your gyro if inverting it or spinning will occur.


Good Luck and thanks,

Rick

I only turn products over to Ready when they hit a certain volume of sales. In the mean time, you can order from me direct.

rlohr@nycap.rr.com

Just specify TREX 500 VBAR Mount.

I posted a better picture that more accurately shows the length.

Sweet. So your receiver is behind the gyro. That works out nicely!

Cool. Next time you have it out, snap a photo of it if you think about it. Very nice!
