It's that danged electric thing Paul. Wished they'd come out with a new 90N! There's a lot of money wrapped up in electronics and they go bad sooner that a nitro motor would that's for sure!Bald Pilots usually wear hats!

You have an 8FG right ? If I buy that at a reasonable price I would buy that from you that way you would have more towards the 18

Well I installed one of those Co-Pilot devices on my Raptor today. Sure wish they had better documentation. It has several different ways to configure it from self leveling to emergency recovery only but I'm not completely sure how to set up the differnt flight modes. It also has something called "stick priority" which lets you adjust how much control the co-pilot has vs the pilot. Need to just get out and try it I suppose.

Got my co-pito half installed Friday. Realized I need a SBE-1 in order for it to work with a CGY750. I agree there ain't squat for instructions. I am excited to try it though.

Yes, it's the infrared one. Not sure how well it will work with the massive tree line on the west end of WMRAF field. The othere thing I don't like is there is no way to bench test it, no way to tell if it is even functioning other than the programming terminal says there are no errors.

Hey Sonny, Jesus is my co-pilot too he, just doesn't seem to be as concerned about the heli crashing as me

Yesterday was a blast! Curcuits with the mCPx in the back yard, finally found out my issue with my 450 and got it fixed, flys like it used to now, some plank flight for fun, orientation practice in the back yard with the 600, more with the 450, more curcuits with the mCPx and the park finaly had a people free area and I let her rip with th mCPx(mind you mine is BL), hurricanes funnels, flips, rolls and some inverted practice.

Best thing I learned yesterday, I had my head speed on my 450 way to high for my ability. I went from a flat 95 to a flat 82. Why the heck did I have it cranked to crazy speed. Going to change that pinion for sure.

I am back enjoying flying!

(BTW HeliProz accepted my resignation so now I just fly for me)

I don't know why you resigned, you were getting a discount, that's all that matters! Jay, I found out Jesus doesn't like to be a co pilot, he wants full control and we fight over it, that's why I crash! lol and he laughs!Bald Pilots usually wear hats!

I guess I will mount a small reciever pack and run a redundant battery until I get this figured out,the batteries cost enough and having a crash on top of it would be really bad

Wow, try putting the batteries in storage and then charge them again. If nothing new, then try the soldering again! Crap happens sometimes.Bald Pilots usually wear hats!
