CCPM eCCPM

"Regular" helicopters use mechanical levers to perform the mixing of cyclic and pitch control, and ECCPM did away with the mixing levers and use direct connection from the servo to the swashplate, and all the mixing of controls is done by the transmitter software. Even though most people refer to the electronic mixing of cyclic and pitch control as simply CCPM, some still like to refer it as ECCPM cause CCPM is just a regular term that described the mixing of various commands to the swashplate, and it can be both mechanical and electronic.

The main advantages of ECCPM is less parts count, and it translates to less slop, less cost of production, less weight, and less maintenance. All these lesses means a lot more to heli pilots.

So in your scenario, CCPM = ECCPM

I have an Eclipse

and yes, you can do 120° and 180° CCPM. I run 120° CCPM on my EP10. However you can not use 90°.......
Well, at least there isn't a setting for 90° but I've read that there is a way around that. Someone had posted some insturctions on how to setup an Eclipse for an Eco 8, which is 90° with out the upgraded swash plate.

Don't forget to SAVE your swashplate setting just after you choose it or it will go back to the last setting.
