When flight stabilization hinders you from enjoying your RC helicopter flying experience, then the FMA RC Helicopter Co-Pilot 2 series may be for you. Representing years of technological research and development, the Co-Pilot 2 system is one of FMA Direct's finest work.

The Co-Pilot 2 system uses a patented infrared thermo-technology designed for semi-autonomous control of radio-controlled aircraft but focusing on planes and helicopters. Thanks to this state-of-the-art system, RC pilots and modelers of any level can confidently fly their aircraft, practice new moves, and protect their aircraft in the event of mechanical and electronic failures.

Advantages of Using the RC Helicopter Co-Pilot 2 Flight Stabilization System

Although the Co-Pilot 2 flight stabilization series is primarily used as a wing leveling device for RC aircraft control in flight regardless of the altitude, the RC Helicopter Co-Pilot 2 system does more than that.

Fly Smoother

As a leveling device, the Co-Pilot centers the control sticks of in-flight RC helicopters and planes. This ensures that the aircraft is at an even and straight flight pattern at any altitude. In addition to this, the Co-Pilot 2 series uses the infrared network (IRNet) for wireless avionics control, making setups quick and hassle-free.

To program your helicopter or plane, simply direct the wireless IRNet programmer at the aircraft, open the main menu and select 'Quick Setup.' Then, follow the easy guided setup that requires you to key in current and preferred aircraft setup and remote configurations.

Fly Easier

The RC Helicopter Co-Pilot 2 series features new 3D flight modes— automatic mode, inverted flight mode, knife edge mode, and the vertical hover mode. Using these flight modes, users can get a better feel of the aircraft controls that enable them to learn new flight techniques and maneuvers.

Fly Safer

Losing altitude due to mechanical or electronic component failure can have disastrous effects from mild collisions to total wreckage. But thanks to the Co-Pilot 2 flight stabilization system, you can fly at ease knowing that your aircraft is protected.

Suppose your plane or helicopter drops altitude during a flight. In that case, the Co-Pilot will trigger an advanced safety mechanism that switches off 3D mode and activates level flight mode to let you land your aircraft as safely as possible.

Fly More

With the digital sensors and computer modules sporting a smaller and lighter design, the Co-Pilot 2 system allows users to install it to a broader range of platforms. This means that pilots and modelers can integrate the system into aircrafts with vertical take-offs and landings (VTOL) and those requiring up to 4 channels to operate. The system also supports split ailerons, differential ailerons, flaperons, Cyclic Collective Pitch Mixing (CCPM) helicopters, and more.

RC Helicopter Co-Pilot 2 Flight Stabilization System Series

The Co-Pilot 2 flight stabilization series includes a main sensor, a vertical sensor, an IRNet programmer, an IRNet router, IRNet programmer and router combo, a 2-way data communication USB interface module, and a Go LED.

CPII-MS Co-Pilot 2 Main Sensor

The CPII-MS Co-Pilot 2 Main Sensor is the heart of the whole Co-Pilot 2 system. This 24.51 x 24.51 x 9.14mm sensor is responsible for noting the aircraft's horizontal orientation as well as changes in motion or position. The information gathered by sensors is used to adjust the aircraft to the ideal altitude and  speed.

It can be installed in any aircraft as long as it is mounted securely six inches apart from other  components, is horizontal during a level flight, has all sensors with a clear view of the horizon, and is outside of the cockpit or canopy.

CPII-ZS Co-Pilot 2 Vertical Sensor

If the main sensor takes note of the horizontal conditions, the 24.51 x 17.80 x 9.14mm CPII-ZS Co-Pilot 2 Vertical Sensor is responsible for the vertical orientation. Although vertical sensors are optional as compared to the main horizontal sensor, having it ensures that the plane has enough altitude to perform certain maneuvers.

The vertical sensor can also be installed in any aircraft. But it has to be mounted securely so that it is vertical in a level flight and needs to be installed six inches away from other components.

IRNet Programmer, IRNet Router, and the IRNet Programmer and Router Combo

The IRNHP IRNet Programmer, IRNRTR IRN Router, and the IRN-C1 act like the nervous system. While the IRNet Router wirelessly receives, transmits, and translates signals within a range of 30 to 50 feet range outdoors and up to 200 feet indoors, the IRNet Programmer tells the aircraft what to do during changes in position and altitude and gives pilots the information needed to ensure a safe and level flight while the aircraft is airborne.

FUIM3 USB Interface Module for 2-Way Data Communication

The FUIM3 USB Interface Module for 2-Way Data Communication is a high-speed, opt isolated, interface module that helps pilots and modelers read data off their computers. It also aids in firmware updates for the Co-Pilot 2 flight stabilization system.

CPII-GOLED Co-Pilot 2 Go LED

The CPII-GOLED Co-Pilot 2 is an easy-to-install and easy-to-operate accessory that connects the avionics computer to the main and/or vertical sensors. When used alone, this component can provide quick real-time weather indications and manual weather calibration thanks to the three high-intensity SMT LEDs. But with a vertical sensor, the Go LED can check pre-flight temperatures.

Fly smoother, easier, safer, and smarter with the FMA RC Helicopter Co-Pilot 2 Series that consists of the CPII Main Sensor, the CPII Vertical Sensor, the CPII IRNet Programmer, the CPII IRNet Router, the CPII IRNet Programmer-Router Combo, the FUMI3 2-Way Data Communication USB Interface Module, and the CPII Go LED.
