    Hi

    I just installed a pair of retracts on my P2.
    I now just need to place my compas in the right way.

    Can I place my compas in this way without the screwing up the compas signal?

    Note that the compas is places with the wires up (against the props) and "facing" the P2. Look at picture 3.

    Would it work?

    Regards

    The orientation looks correct, i.e. cable up and body towards the center of the quad and square vertically.

    The first thing I noticed is you have it mounted near the retract motor!

    This is not good on many fronts. (metal casing, permanent magnets inside, EMI when actuating)

    Just my $0.02 ;)
