Hi
Just like to add and agree with jerrylu that now am begining to switch cp off i also found the unit doesn't completed switch off. The only way was to diconnect the sensors from the receiver (fs8)
I also found 50% of my flying days the calibration was beyond 3. This was both fs8 and the cheaper one that connects to your own receiver.

However i would still recommand it to anyone due to it's bail out option and also the fail safe on the fs8.

Anyone thinking of purchasing the cp i would recommand it as a bail out and not have it on all the time. Am using a futaba T8UP TX in which the snap trainer button top right (Switch H) This has a spring action and is ideal for the bail out switch. This method brought my flying skills forward as i knew the switch was not far away and yes it has save me a couple of crashes but not all.

Now flying nose in\cycles\ and just trying loops with sensor on and off..

Go and buy it but don't leave it on cp mode all day.
Great for the saturday morning flying with an hang over from friday nights beer. Just like driving a RC Car, gets a bit boring after a bit..

And remember to disconnect the sensors every now and then to get the feel of it completed off, cos as jerrylu said that 5% does effect flight...

I think you guys still had the "auto trim" funtion still enabled. In this mode it will still have an effect on the heli even when turned off. If you read the manual it will tell you how to turn it COMPLETELY off. You can tell if it is on by putting your hand in front of a sensor,,,if it's on the sensor will move the swash, if it's off it will not move AT ALL. If you have it off completely there is NO interaction from the CP,,,

QUICK! ,,,can someone turn the gravity off for just a second,,,,
