Default BVM 1/6 F16 and PB Mercury ?

I am wondering if anyone has used this combo? The plate seems to have a lot of flex and I am concerned about the gyro. Any experiences appreciated!

Thank you, the flex had me worried. I imagine the 1/5th is stiffer but the 1/6 seems to move.

I don't own the model but if it was me, I'd add a couple strips of wood underneath and stiffen it up a bit. Wouldn't add much weight or take long to do. Then you'd have peace of mind and all is well...

Just my .02$ worth....

That was my plan as well, but wanted to get a feel for how much I needed to add.

I put a small block if balsa connecting the tray to the bottom of the fuse. I only had a cortex on it, but still, you want that tray to be stiff
