One of the reasons behind this is that when i finish the 600 and decide to take it up in the air, I did not plan to have training gear on it. I am going to experiment with the copilot 2 so that I can practice the orientations on hover. I have actually taken my hands off transmitter for a few seconds and heli stays in place pretty well. To me, this says that the heli is set up right. So the copilot should be easy to setup now. This was the main reason to putting the 7000 into my 450. I wanted to have the on/off on a seperate channel. Not have the gyro running through the copilot so I could turn the copilot off.
