Default Switch out from blue to silverline sensor - any changes to setup needed

HI All,
I have a TREX 700 ( Nitro) currently running a 5.3 full size blueline that I have decided to add a silverline sensor swap out to. I understand the sensor pin out is identical. I am a sport flyer who prefers big sky maneuvers over low flight stick banging and my Trex 700 is currently working well with the Vbar
I have a couple of questions though

1) Physical mounting - Current mount on my 700 is two layers of Gyro tape, then the sensor, then a velcro strap - current sensor is well mounted and does not move - I certainly could just swap the units out on existing pads, but given the new silverline architecture, is this best?

2) Control parameters - Now, I know this is an open question, but I am wondering if I should be prepared to change any control parameters because of the new sensor - As I said, she is flying well, no tail drift, I have my flight modes where I like them, etc. - but I am wondering if some new sensitivities will result in the silverline sensor I might want to be aware of

Thanks in advance for any opinions here

Joe

I did the same switch some time ago.

Mount the silverline sensor with one layer of the supplied tape. That's it.

No need to change anything in your setup. In fact, I could not feel the difference. Download your log and notice fewer vibe warnings. In the end I think I uped my gyro gain a little.

So the S/N of the unit is in the case, not in the sensor?

Hi Goodlet

I want to make sure I understand your setup - you are using one layer of tape, with no strap or anything else - I.E. - Your silverline sits on a tape layer with nothing else - similar to how a tail gyro sensor used to be ( Futaba 601, etc.) -

Interesting

Yes that is how I have my sensor.

Sensor with one layer of tape and no straps or anything else. It has worked flawlessly this way for hundreds of flights.

Use the tape that comes with the silverline sensor (You don't need anything thick and, in fact, using thick tape can actually reduce it's effectiveness)

I looked at the V-Bar designer's personal 600 at IRCHA last year and he had just used Hot Melt glue to attach his silver sensor (A LOT Of glue at that) so it really doesn't need that much

Be EXTRA sure to double check the sensor orientation though (Won't tell you how I know this
