As much as possible, you should only use the double sided tape to mount a gyro. This is in the instructions of every brand of gyro, not just Assist. Do not use hard mounts, clips, velcro straps...

But without any data you do not know if its aerial placement is a problem, you don't even know if it's powered up and working. You could be carrying a waste of weight and money!

No, it was bad because it was too responsive. Jeti was badly advised and they made the Assist into a flight controller, not a traditional gyro. It took over the controls and moved the surfaces far...

A gyro does not care where it is placed in a rigid body. However, an accelerometer does care, and the Assist uses both. Hence Jeti's instruction to mount the Assist near the CG. We don't know what...
