29th of December 2003 - FMA Copilot review starts - Actually, it SAVED my helicopter already today, on its 1st test, from a sure crash.....
Imagine a device, which would be able to control 2 axis, and as soon as you would put the stick to neutral, a plane or helicopter would return immediately to stable horizontal flight. So if you loose sight, or feeling where the plane/heli is going, just leave the stick, and everything will be just fine....
This device exists, and is called the FMA CoPilot.
3 tests will be performed with this Copilot:
This Review will cover:

James Drulia (Joedy) has made an extensive work on how to use this radio. From concrete examples to graphs, this tutorial is a must to read for anyone who owns this radio, and for anyone who wants to understand more why many people think that this radio is almost the ultimate in the computer radio arena.
Another extensive thread which is not a tutorial but more a FAQ area on this radio can be found here

5th of June 2003 - Partenavia tested with Gyro - See Video here
This is the Wingo Gyro (read doc here), supposed to maintain the bank angle of the plane, at any time. Actually, it does reduce the plane's sharp reactions, but does not disable completely its tendency to turn or not, due to external factors.
This Gyro controls the 2 ailerons servos, and just counters the balance of the plane, when felt. Other Gyro could feel the angle with the horizon and bring planes back to it, this Gyro does not, it only tries to keep the last desired angle of the plane, and is active mainly when the stick is neutral.
The Gyro did not do anything major, just seems to prevent sharp moves, but from what I saw today, not worth it. Still, The Partenavia had a fun day :)

"Epoxy and Foam bomb" time
Several hours after the crash: Here comes the New Partenavia
The foam started to grow, from inside the cockpit, and after few minutes, went out as you can see... Amazing product and very useful ! It seems that it expends about 3 times, and while expending, goes into all the possible holes and exits. Then, it becomes very strong, so you can cut it as wished.
