Having live data from the copter with vibration status, number of satellite locks, battery voltage etc. is very helpful. And not to mention a log file if something goes wrong.. After having gotten used to the YS-X6 and telemetry, you feel much more separated from the hardware like you are flying on blind trust with the WKM.
I had the YS-X6 and sold it. I don't have enough time as it is to mess with something that is in development. I agree that DJI could offer more features at a lesser cost. I don't think that is in their business model. I am going to try the REVO board with GPS from OP. I will probably regret the decision again as I have with ArduCopter and ArduMega Boards. I am such a sucker for new tech. I still haven't found anything yet that matches DJI out of the box.
