I don't have any of mine personally, but these are pretty much what is does. It will roll the heli either upright or self level inverted if you set it that way. You can set the flight control rates in degrees per second, and that is also how fast the heli will flip itself upright. Flying with SL on all of the time will make the heli fly like a coaxial and it will constantly try and keep itself upright. You can also set it to SL as soon as your release the sticks to neutral.

I can switch between normal flight and SL while in hover and the heli will sit level all on its own. Flipping into SL while moving in FFF will level the heli, but will not stop its forward inertia. You will need the GPS unit if you want the heli to rescue itself and lock into position.

You will need to be more specific as to what you are wanting to know if these videos don't show you what you need.

The instructions say, mount as close as possible to the COG. I am getting a 720 black edition and am considering mounting it on my Goblin 380. The only place to put it will be aft of the servos on the designated mounting plate. It's not all that important to me that this works, but if it does, it would be a nice feature.

Is the location I described close enough.

It will be fine there. Like my Goblin 500.
All my Skookums are on all the individual helicopters designated mounting plate. Beam E4, Goblin 500, Synergy E5 and Furion 6.

Just to be sure, I am talking about the SL feature. This is a big move for me changing my helis from AR7200BX to SK540 for my Oxy3's and SK720 for my Goblin 380's. A bit of a learning curve coming up.

It doesn't matter. Mount it where you can. Mounting it closer to the COG will reduce lateral vibes in some cases, otherwise it serves no purpose. A gyro measures angular movement not COG, so it works the same anywhere as longs as its square with the frame.

Works just fine on my 380. Had to use some thick Zeal tape to mount it above the nylon nut. I'm not real crazy about the mounting I used so let us know how you did it to keep the plugs from hitting the servo. Couldn't use thin tape with the aluminum mounting plate because there was too much vibration transmitted that way.
