Due to a high crash rate, I thought I would install the new new Revoletrix Co-Pilot II. In short, it has a number of features but the attractive one was to ' flick a switch' and it will take over cyclic and rudder and level the Heli. You still control the collective and you need to give it enough height.

As you all know, the Rave does not hang around...Particularly when you're in trouble. After doing some tests quite high, the system did work. But when I got into trouble and flicked my switch the co-pilot would try to get out of trouble but would lose so much altitude in the process, I put it in.

I put this down to that the system did not take into account what collective I was putting in and that alone made things a nightmare.

Perhaps I didn't give it enough time, but the other concern was if I continued to run this system, I wouldn't learn how to get out deathly situations on my own.

Verdict = thumbs down.

New strategy:
More some time with wind turned up to max and practice new tricks at altitude.

That's a wrap
Hope this helps
