DJI-Innovations GPS Module For NAZA Controller has RTH (Return to Home) and IOC (Intelligent Orientation Control) and Low Battery Warning for only $169.00

FMA Hard Deck is just that, a hard deck and nothing more but you have to use their co-pilot II system to use their hard deck addon so that gives it the self-leveling full time or at a push of a button but just think of what a "hard deck" really means ! basicly as long as you don't run it into a obstacle such as a tree or building it is a "uncrashable" heli that flys completly normal (no self leveling unless you turn that on) above 50 ft or if your below 50 ft then it self-levels intill your on the ground (that is if you don't turn it off, which you can do if you want) how cool would that be !!! oh and it won't cost anything near $800.00 !!! but again you have to use their co-pilot II system to use their hard deck addon BUT their hole system would cost less than Align APS gps addon by it's self, that $800.00 does not include the align 3gx FBL controller which you must have to use their gps addon.......

but those two system are not really the same thing at all, both will give you self-leveling but that's where the similarities end.......

no word on the skookum gps addon cost or even a hint of when or if it might ever be out i'm sorry to say.....

EDIT i just remembered that the co-pilot II system works with a fly-bar OR you need to also buy a FBL controller as well, man that's a LOT of little boxs all over your heli !!! they really need to get the little black box count down to one or two IMO.......
