After sitting at the bottom of a pond for 4 days, I took it apart to try and save it. I thought others may be interested in what the inside of a NAZA looks like.

My daughters old 6V quad. I modified it to run off 12v volts (CCBEC PRO). So I could use 12 volt solar panels to keep it charged. Runs for hours. I'm using a 900 Mhz VTX. I can get very good range on the ground for FPV.

Some pics of my F550. It has GPS, 910Mhz video, GoPro2, and custom pan/tilt w/digital servos. I'm not sure if I'm going to leave the dipole antenna where it is(red boom). But I will test it's location for now. Flight times are about 8 minutes with a 3S 5000mAh. It weighs 5lbs.

It will return to it's take off point if TX signal is lost. Or I can just flip a switch on my TX and it will return autonomously. Good insurance to have on an expensive rig. Especially when signal range is always an unkown. I usually don't fly more than 100 yards away. Since it is mainly for making videos.

I'm a fan of multi-rotors, but this is crazy.

My newly completed RQ-11 for FPV.

It's a sexy bird. But it's flight characteristics are lacking. I have a new Skywalker V5 that I will probably put the gear in. To me the RQ-11 is a fair weather flyer only. It doesn't like wind very much.

The Naza stabilization system is absolutely incredible. Everything in the kit is top notch.

I have a 910Mhz FPV system on it with 2650 lipos for the flight system. Works great and is alot of fun.

Pictures from the Great Georgia Airshow 2011. I tried to get a few good detail pics of the SBD Dauntless. For future projects. It's one of only 2 left flying in the world.

A friend of mine showed me this video. I thought I would link it here, since it's so good.
