Good to hear there having fun now Max, I just ordered a co-pilot II I am going to put it on to take advantage of inverted recovery so I can not have to worry about dumb thumbs as much, will also now be able to let my boys have a try with less worrys of an accedent in normal recovery mode. I will set mine up with a bail out switch rather than constant control by the co-pilot,

Wish I had seen the price of this one first I would have bought on two, maybe I will if they come back in stock

Re: no more bad pilots

If you are using FM/PPM remote control device, when helicopter is out of control, the Flymentor 30 will set aileron, elevator, rudder to neutral, and keep pitch in the final signal position, and switch to positioning mode automatically
So, you could switch the transmitter off?

Good question.

I BELIEVE the system needs to "see" the the nominal stick position to be enabled similar to the way the current gyros work. But just for fun I will confirm that with an experiment on the field (not while flying though...LOL) to see how the Flymentor operates with and without TX input. The device has a red and green LED system that utilizes a series of colours and flashes to indicate its working mode. I will check and find out
