Default RE: fma direct co-pilot?

I used one on my first heli... hated it. The thing fought me all the time even with the gain turned down... I found I really wasn't learning a thing by using it and the fact that it tried to correct all my movements on the sticks sealed it's fate to my "I wish I hadn't bought this "box. I know of a few guy's that use them on a TX switch so when they get to far out of shape they flip the switch and it right's the heli for them... so they claim... even this is not for me.

They may be a bit better on a plane BUT I'd use the tried and true method of learning to fly with an instructor if at all possible... use the money you save on the co-pilot to buy him/her a coke at the end of each day of flying lessons
