Can someone tell me how to setup co-pilot on my Raptor 30. I have a JR8103 radio with a JR PCM receiver NER-649S. I've connected the copilot up per instruction and I don't get any response what so ever from it. I'm think that a combination of things must be wrong. One, maybe in trying to set the radio up to use aux2 is incorrect and two, maybe I need the ditigal servo buffer for my PCM receiver. I really don't know. I'm very new to the hobby and saw getting co-pilot as a way of maybe not crashing so much! Any advice/help will be greatly appreciated!!

This should do the trick!!!

Im using the same radio and receiver as you are on a Z230 gasser, you only need the servo buffer on certain futaba pcm receivers, On mine, I didnt even plug in the remote lead on the co-pilot, it works fine, just be sure to set the gain at about 60%, also check that your elevator and aileron leads are not plugged into the co-pilot computer backwards!, the brown wire should be to the OUTSIDE of the computer module, when looking at it from the top, try re-plugging in these two servo wires again, it should come to life!!, I did this when I first installed mine and it would not work at all., Hopes this helps you out! Joe.

Copilot W/JR8103 no pitch control

Vortech, thanks for the info. I think I will operate the copilot manually. Just one thing. When I don't plug the remote into the receiver the heli swashplate pitch back and I have no movements from the radio. When I plug the remote in the swashplate levels but here again, no pitch movements for the radio. I've been thru the copilot and radio manuals. I don't know what's happening. Can you or anyone give me some guidance. Thank you for your help.
