What do you mean when you say yes, is it so that one or more of the modes can be used with a v-octo?
If so, which ones?

v-octo is this:


its supposed to be a stable platform for filming with a good view in front for the camera.

I mean the board is capable of controlling one of those, but we haven't written any firmware which can do it.

I don’t see any advantage of a V8 – LOL.

But I think that H6 and H4 would be popular configurations.

the v-okto is better in wind that the flat okto and you dont have the camera gimble under the v-okto ,so no pendle effect

The camera mount for that configuration goes in front of the board. Then the camera has a completely clear field of view.

I have seen the "V-Octo" promoted on a couple of other forums as "the ideal film machine" yet I have never seen one flown showing any of the stabilization I would expect on a film machine! I have seen two close up and the both seamed to wander around.

I can see the orientation benefit but I don't care how it looks if it doesn't fly well

Just my 2c worth - I hope I don't upset anyone... I'm too soft to do that

Any ETA? I used to fly a octo-v with the APM and I loved the physical platform, plenty of room, easy to prototype the frame, super stable with a camera in front between the arms and battery towards the rear.
