Not 100% sure, but I bet they won't work. The CX2 is a fixed pitch machine and the CP is a collective pitch machine. Incompatible, unless you know how to get into the programming on the radio, which I can bet is internal and not re-programmable.

If i'm incorrect, somebody will jump in here soon enough and correct me.

Rafael23cc Is correct on this you have to buy a radio that is at least 6 channels and CCPM mixing.

Couple thoughts:

The CX2 comes with a 5-channel transmitter (btw, you only need 5 channels for a collective pitch heli; one channel is unused on the CP's transmitter), it has a lot of DIP switches, and E-Flite is obviously heading in a particular direction with Spektrum. You have to wonder if there's not an undocumented way to configure the LP5 to control a BCP.

If I had to place a bet, I'd say that a CP with heading-lock and 2.4 GHz is very close.

The reason I say six is cause they dont make a five channel radio.

This appears to duplicate another of your posts:

Simply put, the technology isn't the same.

This is Possible

I have been experimenting with the demo at the place where i work and have found that it can be bound to both AR6000's and AR6100's (not sure if it is full function or reliable but it will make the servos move), thus its still using "standard" spektrum technology. ALSO a DX7 can bind with the stock CX2 receiver thus proving the previous sentence further.

I have also been playing with the switches recently and have found some odd effects including one that apears to be a "Mix" of some sort but has 4 rather that 3 servos moving - although this could be hinting at ccpm with revolution mixing, i really doubt it. It may be a start to ccpm though- it is essentially a bunch of well documented dip switch flicks that needs to be done in order to see if this is really possible....

Anyone up for a 3 hour dipswitch flicking challenge? if not I will gradually work on it at work...

Lastly, I do not think its likely that this particular radio setup is capable of running a ccpm heli because one of the channels that would be required to be internally mixed is exposed to human input. ALTHOUGH, it is possible that it could be connected and disconected from the microcontroller with the dipswitch.

I think the point was missed, my understanding is that he wants to use his CX2 transmitter (Spektrum transmitter) on his CP (FM receiver).

As I said it could be possible but I doubt anyone knows for sure at the moment...

This is just like those guys trying to figure out how to run linux on a gameboy/xbox/gamecube/ps2. in the begining no one had a clue but in the end it was possible.

Matt,

I saw pictures of the insides of the CX2 TX on another board and I and 99.9% sure it can be done.

One guy even put the CX2 RX in a small plane (park flyer), but he only got about 300' range.

I thought about picking up the CX2 RX and sticking it in a Blade and using a DX7 TX.

I have got it to work but to make the heli to move to the left I have to turn the knob on the top right of the transmitter I do not see any other way of doing it

thanks for the help
