Ruud,  If you plan on using ccpm on your ECO. The Futaba 6xhs is a nice
radio but you will need the micro servos. The JR 652 or 8103 will also fit
the bill.  Hitec Hs-85 servos  or Hs-81s will fit   or futaba S3101's. I
recomend that you upgrade your swashplate to the metal one as the molded
ball links will eventually fail. Same with the tail pitch slider.
www.fxaeromodels.com  is  a great place to get parts for your ECO8 they also
have a Aveox brushless motor and speed control combo.....Good luck on your
ECO..... Paul

Any radio capable of CCPM will fly the ECO.  If you must use the
mechanical mixer then any heli radio will do.

I'm using 8X1700SCR's, a Schulze slim 50he ESC and a Kyosho Magnetic
Mayhem 22 turn reverse timed truck motor with the bushes replaced with
ballraces.  With the 10 tooth pinion I get 8+ minute runs and plenty of
power for circuits. With bigger pinions I get more power and shorter
runs.  You can spend shirtloads more on brushless motors etc if you want
to.
