Thanks

My first video was pretty boring, I was too infatuated with the Naza ( first one ) and the gimbal performance. so its pretty boring.

The gimbal though was no good for what I want, so Ill be making a brushless gimbal for it as soon as I can.

Translated directly from Danish, I would call it "angle ion" in aluminium.

I think the brushless gimbal is the way to go, looked at a few videos now and they look amazing! and in theory cheap to make!!!!!. still waiting for new motor shafts for mine......so have been flying my quad instead.

Just a thought for you guys. If you mount the batteries under the frame you will should get better results of stability, smoothness and reduced work of your flight controller.
This is why. With the cente of gravity lower the flight controler dose not have to make as many calculations to the ESC's to keep it level. In turn less motor speed changes to keep it level.
Lots of us use ESC with SimonK installed, it gives more stepps in the speed of the motor witch will more precisely control the speed of the motor, ie it is abel to make smaller changes in the RPM which in turn, less vibes do to frequency changes and less work for you FC.

Ever try to hover a plane, the more CG to rear the easer it is.

Nice but over priced. I`m going to buy Alex`s board and rewire my own motors and make my own design gimbal from Tarot spares so it matches the build

Definitely overpriced for what it is! but works well....how much is Alex board? the mechanical part of gimbal should be easy(ish). and once you have the rewinding of the motors off to an art you can do mine ha ha

$149 for the controller + IMU

The motor rewinds easy enough to do so the gimbal making bit will be the challenge with my limited tools but I like a challenge

Do you guys really find it overpriced?

If it works as good as it looks, I think it is a bargain.

I also pre-ordered mine 2 weeks ago.. now waiting patiently.. meanwhile, a lot of YS owners are hit by high IMU/vibration reading causing my FY680 to crash. all my CF props were damaged..
