Fake 401 Packaging

The main visual difference for the gyro is the plugs, the left is genuine and uses gold pins. The right is the counterfeit version uses silver pins on the plugs.Fake 401 Gyro

Again the plug pins are gold on the genuine (left) and on the fake they are silver (right). Also the rubber boot that goes around the serveo cable by the housing is longer on th genuine (left) and shorter on the fake (right)
