Have a special project to work on and I'm requesting insight. Have a CP pro sitting around and decided to make it fully brushless. The problem is I'm getting a little long in the tooth and a little hazy with my vision (forty stories). so it's hard to see it's orientation at distance so my plan is to use it as a training tool for practicing nose in, nose left and right flight indoors. I also would like to know if the DX-7 or the 12FGA would be best for this application. Please advise and send pics if you've completed simular project.

Whatever it is that you love to do, just have fun doing it...

Lots of resource around here for using a DX7

I have a thread about BL tail motors with a few different tail mixes depending on preference
http://www.runryder.com/helicopter/t337407p1/

tutelar-rc has a few threads on BL in general and tail blade comparisons

A search of the E-flite section will bring up as much as you care to ingest

Thanks!! Micro Maniac... I have a feiago brushless motor and the thunderbird 9 esc with an Eflight EFLRG90HL gyro. would the Eflight gyro not work with this set-up??? Do I really need the Futaba gyro??

The G-90 will work fine - I flew it with one for a season - A GY401 just holds better and doesn't have the annoying drift issues the G-90 has - I also tried a 2100T but it didn't seem to get along with the tail motor as well as the GY401

I think they just mean it doesn't have gov features and maybe no soft-start/cutoff etc - But it's not going to be governed controlling a fixed pitch tail anyways - I don't gov my main motors either and use basic TB-18 on main and TB-9 on tail
(tb-6 would probably be a more appropriete tail esc for other readers looking into this but nothing wrong with oversizing esc just undersizing - tb-9 on main did not work out for me and had to go with tb-18)
