Anyone using this system on thier heli? Spending 150 quid on top of a 3K heli seems very little if it will help in avoiding any unwanted manouvres!! At least it might reduce the nerves a little!! (placebo effect!)

My experience with the has been very good - it does exactly what is say's it can do.
Only possible problem with your set-up would be the temp of the exhaust.
We found that the sensor does not like the high temp of a petrol exhaust.
So god only knows what it would with a turbine exhaust??
Anyone else tried one on turbines yet ??

I have played with a co-pilot on a heli that I was setting up for some guy.

I did not like the way the helicopter felt! the co-pilot was constantly trying to level the heli and fighting all my inputs. If you are looking for a hands off hovering heli than the co-pilot may be something to get but I believe that it will hinder your learning curve and give you a false sense of security that may bite you in the arse later on.
