    How do you set up the Detrum GY48V gyro.

    Ive been looking for a manual for it online just to know what the settings are and what I could do to make sure its set up correctly? I havent touched it yet but just want to know everything about every part I get.

    What helli? If it's a pro you'll want to do the grip flip mod.
    Check out vids from where it mentions tail geometry on down to simple tail mod.

    I second that! If you have sport or pro you will definitely want to do the grip flip mod, leading edge to trailing edge. Always you to setup a good rate mode without binding on the tail, makes things much easier for you!

    Even though there were bad reviews, I picked up the E-Razor 450. I did my homework and did a complete check of the bird when I got it. Made all adjustments needed. The only thing I need to know is how to propely know all the adjustments on the gyro. The maden flight went very well! I am pleased with this helicopter!!

    Thanks for the link. It is very helpful. Im wondering about how its mounted. In the pics on the link it shows it 90 degrees ccw compared to how it was mounted from the factory. Is that wrong?

    That's correct, most of the time you will see it mounted with doubled-sided tape included with the gyro. As long as it's 90 degree's to your boom should be fine. I like it mounted on the back facing down. Due to the size, hard to find a spot inside the main frame.The flat spot on top of your boom is where it's commonly mounted.
