Mine flew perfect out of the box. Then, after many flights, and many battery recharges, it just decided to fly away. Guess what, $1,000 just flew away, it took my GOPRO HERO SILVER with it. It did not come back to land and it didn't land itself upon loosing signal. It is somewhere in, or around, Lake Havasu City, Arizona. No loud bangs, no fires, no police sirens, phew. I stayed around for an hour looking, but no good, it's lost. When it's found, that GOPRO video will tell the tale, the camera was ON.

This is the second NAZA that failed. Previously, I bought a turn key FlightWheel 550 Hex with the NAZA M and GPS. the NAZA M was defective out of the box, spent a week of valuable time trying to make it work..

Now I fly with the Arduflyer 2.5 controller installed on my Flightwheel 550. It flies perfect, but I'm chicken to try the return to land function.

My advice: Fly in an open space and be prepared for the unexpected.
