Newbie please, need some advice Co Pilot II or Co Pilot CPD4
Im new into "non-coaxial" helicopters and just bought two used old ones (but in very good shape by the way, basically unused and cheap!). I got Blade CP (the very first version now discontinued) and a Century Hummingbird Fixed Pitch (the one with the AirWolf fuselage and it comes with a 4 channel JR radio system whose transmitter comes with a switch to activate "training" mode which Im not sure if such can be of any help for any Co Pilot).
Now, I have read Co Pilot II Quick Start Guide and Co Pilot CPD4 User Guide.
I think I would be able to make Co Pilot II to fit into any of my helis. But Im unsure.
First I was about to decide for CPD4 but it probably wouldnt be enough for Blade CP because it is a collective pitch heli. Or.. can I just connect Elevator and Aileron disregarding Collective servo ? This is something I would like to clear.
Also, Blade CP comes with an integrated all in one unit (receiver, ESC, mixer etc, all in one single circuit) and I wonder if that makes it impossible to fit any Co Pilot unit?
At least my Hummingbird does come with receiver, mixer, ESC all by separate.
If I manage to learn two fly these two birds I would probably upgrade to a more serious heli but for now I prefer to spend my money on a Co Pilot that can help me to learn to fly helicpters as this is really challenging.
But, you guys you are experts, what wold you do in my place?
Would Co Pilot II would fit both of my helis? If so, what combo would you suggest?
Thanks for your words and time!
