Set up a Bavarian Demon Cortex in the S Bach, first impressions are good probably needs a little fine tuning on the gains Wink

Just read several good reviews on the Cortex so jumped that way to be honest reading the specs on both they're very similar both in specs and claimed performance and both can be tweaked on a PC Wink

Don't know really Rich, lots of the jet jockeys are using them, it would be a great cheat tool for IMAC holding lines is a doddle Wink

It's a very small unit and it would be easily secreted away, you would however have to create a longer wiring harness than the ones supplied to stash it away from sight Wink

Another give away certainly with the Cortex is that when you power up the model you have to leave the model stationary on the ground and don't give any inputs on the tranny while the giro initiates itself once it has all the servos give a couple of blips and you're good to go. The unit itself does have to be mounted centrally in the model somewhere close to the C/G but not necessarily right on it.
