Default CPII AS ADVERTIZED

Got my CPII a couple of days ago. Read the sticky, most of the posts, and studied the manual in how to make adjustments . My CPII unit worked PERFECT from the start and now have it fine tuned to my preferences . It already has saved my heli from a crash !!
From experience with it, I HIGHLY RECOMEND this unit as a money saving device !!! It exceeded my expectations of it !!! Really Pleased !

Don't think anyone takes it a gloating. If you have information to share, do it. Information is good...weather it is critical of a product, or not. Readers can filter it how they want. Pointers and tips are also appreciated.

Mine worked perfect as well and I just set another one up for a friend that also performed flawlessly. Has saved me several times as I've learned to fly my circuits.

Unhappy Regarding CP install...?

Congrats to you guys with the CPII successes.
I hope I fare as well, as I'm setting one up on a trex 450 build as a learning tool right now.
Quick question that I hope someone can answer:
Will I encounter any interference problems if I "piggyback" the CPII computer to the top of my AR7000 RX? The wiring will be much neater that way, and the CP computer unit will be protected within the frame as compared to slapping in onto the frame side...
Since there are infinitely wiser dudes here, please let me know if this install location is a bad idea about to happen. TIA!

CoPilot just simply works, I don't leave home without it

Paid for itself many times over 'cause I am really bad at flying

It should work fine.

Default Gracias

Thanks Nightflyr, glad to get your opinion on this one. "Stuff with wires" being placed right on top of a RX is something I've never done B4. I'll be sure to do a range check, etc as well.... any ugly issues come up, I'll report back for the communal knowledge base.

Question Looking for a little help please?

I have installed the CP II on a 700 nitro for a guy. This guy already has the microbeast FBL unit installed and working. After I installed the CP II I noticed the swash would tilt forward and left. I did this setup inside because it was late evening. So my questions are:

1. Does the setup need to be done outside where you will be flying?

2. Are you guys with success using the factory default settings?

3. How close is too close for cars and building? 20 feet, 50 feet?

Any suggestions or corrections to what I may be doing wrong will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks guys. Now I will go read some more

Steve

Hi Steve
You might want to have a NEW post for this Question. Better chance that nightflyr might see it, and he seems to know quite a bit about the CP II and can help you !
