to INDEX of Gyro MODS
GY192 is a basic inexpensive Piezo gyro but the backing plate is not
that tight and the circuit board floats in the case. My original GY192
floated in the case and I initially used foam tape inside the case to
hold it firm and taped the case with one swipe of scotch tape. That did
well for a number of flights, but I later decided to pull it and do a
proper MOD. I used GOOP E6000 as described on the index page. Here are
GY192 Un Modded:
Back View of GY192
Where the problem is:
Un Modded board with back cover removed (back cover just pops off
E6000 applied then let sit for 2 minutes. Do not let it sit more than
say 5 minutes or the surface of the glue starts to get too hard to
properly adhere to the backing plate. Let that glue get into the gap
where the wires stick out of the case (I put more glue in after the
picture but did not snap another one). Glue is used to hold the board
to the main case but also to hold the rear cover to the board. If your
mounting to the rear cover, you don't want that cover comming
disconnected from the board or other side of the case!
DO NOT LET GLUE GET ONTO
DIALS, LEDS, SWITCHES or the ACTIVE PARTS OF CONNECTORS!!!!!!
Done! Let it cure for best results.
