I have spent the majority of this "bad weather" day reading this complete post.

"Very Informative"

QUESTION: What is the main feature everyone loves the most with this unit?

Does it have a Return to Home feature?

I am thinking of installing one on my Walker 450. I see several have done so. Any comments on my thought? Pro's - Con's?

Thanks, Dennis

Dennis, the co-pilot is still a viable self level system, it does need to be used with an external receiver and having it installed with the hard deck add-on, it's where the co-pilot shines.

Cons: The static pressure tube hanging from the tailboon is cumbersome and ugly. I wish it could be replaced by other type of sensors. Separated vertical and horizontal optical sensors, the HD and the CPII modules should've been integrated into a single physical unit.

Pros: The hard deck and rescue functions simply works, always! Very easy to setup and use.

Keep in mind that despite of the fact that CP-II really does the job pretty well, there is also FBL controllers that have self level and bailout too now. Perhaps you may also want to consider these options.

I still enjoy flying my trusty 500 with CP-II on it. I always have lots of fun testing complicated maneouvers first above the hard deck, without being afraid or concerned of crashing.

Main feature is that it works for both helicopter and fixed wing.
It tune-able to your liking.
The hard deck functions quite well for its intended purpose, which is a training tool.
30' (9.1m) minimum hard deck height.
Can be used in series with a FBL controller providing you have a separate Rx.
The only Con, if you can call it that is that you will have more wiring and components to deal with.
