Buyer Beware DJI

Be sure and do your research before investing in any DJI product! Just a pleasant reminder for all the people that want to jump on the drone bandwagon. Customer support is awful and most of their FC's have issues, not all, but it's your call to roll the dice or not...

If your not going to take people's advice and build how you want then of course you are going to have problems, you have previously stated that you have a 1300 octocopter with esc under the arms and no extra capacitors, you obviously do not know what you are doing.

And here you even praise DJI's support

For about $2,000 you can build a Tarot 650 with gimbal on a rail system, no props in the shot, and FPV through the GoPro. Don't forget the mini IOSD because you will lose orientation sooner or later. And because flying your quad way the heck out there is a lot more relaxing when you have an on screen compass to get back home. Yea I know there is home lock mode, but trust me the on screen display for $69 is a no brainier. Been the Phantom route, nice product and had a blast but the 650 with Naza is a dream to fly, 36 minutes flight time with a 6 cell 10,000 mah battery and that's night flying with LEDs full bore! And I have a few! By the way, I had good luck with DJI customer support.

Obviously you don't know what you are doing. I have never owned a 1300 and capacitors under the arms have nothing to do with a flyaway that happened after 30 sucessfull flights. Support is pretty good until you have a fly away and then you are ignored because they know they have issues. They send you a "Flyaway" form and that is it. Are you a Newb?

As long as you are using decent gauge wires and extending the power supply side and your power source is of a decent size and C rating (not normally an issue for multirotor guys) then you will not have a problem till you start making your wires longer than 1.5-2m. Considering the size of most multirotors this is never going to be an issue (and I use a 1300mm Octo). The issue is further reduced if you go up in voltage, as most multirotors with long arms (over 500mm long arms, so a wheelbase of 1000mm or greater) are on 6S, it simply is not an issue unless you plan on running 18AWG wire to your ESC's.......

Extending the wires on the motor side is definitely the wrong thing to do despite the arguments that are often made about it as you will reduce motor efficiency as you start adding more resistance to the motor windings and start putting the phases out of balance. A high quality motor not only has identical numbers of turns used with near identical lengths of wire for the windings, they are also balanced in resistance by shortening the motor leads with the higher resistance (this is also why you should not cut your motor leads on high quality motors).

Oh geez, this guy again...6 weeks ago you are singing dji's praises, and now they are garbage? Pfft......people tried to actually ask you happened and get details, but all you did was attack and call people newbs.....haha you kept saying if they didnt know what line loss is then they don't even deserve a response....which is ridiculous in itself......good luck man, I am sure you will have no problems no matter what FC you use.....pfft, what a joke
