I had been attempting to learn to fly on and off for
the last several years but have been unsuccessful.
I think my main problem was the lack of consistent practice.
I would only get a minute to fly before the plane crashed
and I would then spend a week or two repairing it.
Last summer I bought a copilot with an FMA razor.
After about 120 flights with the copilot I feel a lot more
comfortable flying. I have another 130 flights on the FMA
razor without the copilot now.
The copilot did provide stability for the airplane while it
was in the air. The plane itself was very rugged and
survived many crashes.
I feel the combination did help me pass over the initial
hurdle of learning to fly.
I have another airplane on the building board right
now that will have the copilot it.
I am glad I bought.

I have a Co pilot on one of my planes that I use for aerial photo work and it does a great job of keeping the plane in a stable attitude. I can adjust it's strength or turn it off from my TX so can fly with or without it. I think it could be a good learning tool especially if your TX and RX have the ch to control it from the ground so you can use it when necessary.
FMA has a christmas special on the Co pilot and their 5M RX right now.
