Seriously, I'm not putting a Carvec on my 450. I'm sure some of you knew that already knew that but it would be fat on a larger size bird. Something like the ones you guys posted or the EagleTree would be nice. It would at least give me a referance point but not realtime data.

I wouldn't mind putting on a AP2000i but afraid of it from previous posts about using them in bright sunlight and them losing the horizon. I like the piloting end and probably wouldn't use it much but it would be a neat tool in the toolbox. Me likey gadgets.

Just a little detail, the Eagletree have option for realtime data

Never argue with an idiot, he'll drag you down to his level and beat you with experience...

Check out the Helicommand HC3A unit for flight stabilization (gyro stabilized, small, lightweight, works great).

Just checked out that EagleTree. I didnt realize they provided realtime data.

rerazor-So you say the HC3A is sufficient for a 450? Little bit more pricey than the 2K.

Yep, there are many people that have used them on a Trex 450. They cost a little more then a API2K but are much better (IMHO). You get what you pay for, I wouldn't fly AP without one now.
