I was at the "unveiling" of the ECO product.
Pretty cool stuff. I think it originated at iLevil (I was there as a "guest" with Ananda, daughter of company founder and chief just about everything there, I think. :-)
The product looks to be GREAT for small planes and a low cost option for people that want "just the basics ma'am, just the basics". What was advertised, it seemed to do well in the demo.
The basic idea though is a small trim servo for adjusting what the plane does. Clearly there will be some limitations with such an approach and thus a continued need for the "traditional" Trutrak products (or other servos etc.).
In your case, I would either take advantage of one of the great Trutrak upgrades or sell what I have and purchase the GRT servos. In either case, I think that you would be much better off, assuming you are flying an RV.
Just my opinion. I am sure the folks at Trutrak or iLevil will correct me if I am wrong (as the SHOULD!). :-)
