I own one, but still haven't gotten around to using it. I wanted to use it to help me learn nose in & circuits when I might get disoriented. Now that i have my piccolo is flying great I think i'll try it again. The first time I didn't get it to work, but did confirm that the piccolo could handle the extra weight. Of course, on any micro flight times will drop. It should work on the FP hornet. No, it wont work on a CCPM helicopter so if your hornet is CP it wont work, but I hear they are designing one that will. It takes the temp. of the sky and the ground, which both remain pretty constant i guess. But things like trees, humans and cars can effect it. It doesn't need a advanced radio, but if you want to be able to turn it's function on or off, or control it's sensitivity from your radio, you will want an extra channel. Otherwise you can only do this on the helicopter. The only thing you should have to do to your heli is mount the equipment. I'll report back later, Jordan.
