I was reading something about it the other day and just skimmed over the thread somewhere but I saw something saying it only worked well above 50ft.

Well the best part about FMA's new hard deck !!! it lets the heli fly completely normal (if you like and set it that way) and does absolutely nothing to control the heli (again if you set it up like that in the setting) BUT if the heli "breaks" so to say the "hard deck" boundary (also settable) THEN it snaps into action as fast as a blink of an eye (around a sec) it levels the heli and adds collective to raise the heli back up and over the "hard deck" then give complete control back to the user, no self leveling involed at all (unless you want it, you can turn that on or off) !!! how great is THAT !!!

What more could you possably want ?!?

Anxiously awaiting it to be shipped. Looks like a supplier delayed them by a couple weeks but they are shipping soon. So anxious to practice new stuff with no fear(you know that mCPx feeling but with a 700). Of course I will test it before I let it all hang out but this is going to be Awsome!

Only if you plan to land the auto below 50 feet. I once parked a heli at 75 feet. It didnt stay there very long.

Seriously, must be able to turn off with TH switch.

Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

Autos with hard deck, should be easy. Below 50' it is just stabilization. You only need collective management and fly it in. Or just shut it off and fly it in.

What is the price? Do you have to have another component since this was mentioned to be an add on?

Since learning about this unit a few months ago I have been frequently flying my 450 at what I think is 50' high and it is too high at all. I am putting the system on a 90 so learning is going to feel like I am on the deck.
I recommend the full kit, #3 I think it is if you are looking into it.

o settable) THEN it snaps into action as fast as a blink of an eye (around a sec) it leve
Hope it's faster than that. Even if the heli is only traveling along the y-axis at 34mph, it's in the (real) dirt.

50 feet is too high...Period.

And when it's at 50 feet and you've lost orientation and lost control....Keeping it level is NOT always the best option.

Now you got a heli,out of control.soon to be out of sight and traveling at 50 mph to god knows where....Pits? Crowd? parking lot? Highway?

Sometimes,the dirt is where the heli belongs.

Guys that use this module are going to be about 101% newbies.
They are going to brain freeze when control is yanked away from them and then when control is returned,they'll freeze.

If it goes into the HD inverted,the module will flip it back upright and level it.
The heli is still headed down though and where is the collective stick?...Yup,in the negative pitch range because the newbie froze....NOW the heli is in a POWERED descent.Crash to follow very soon.

The system has so many flaws....Just don't have the time.

Take it for what it is....It's NOT for me.

I literally never use the word literally right.

McKrackin,

Are you comments based on personal experience with this unit? I have not seen one in the flesh yet, and your comments seem very decided and determined, perhaps from first hand evaluation?

Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

The price seems reasonable. I'll give it a shot on my 450 Pro.

However, I usually do not buy a product when it first comes out. I like for all the kinks to be sorted out first and purchase the 2nd or 3rd batch.
