I'll fit them to the arms over the weekend and in conjunction with the NEX5 I really hope to report back with positive news. again many thanks for the great posts. You guys rock!
Cool. Don't forget the bead of silicone. It makes a big difference. Good luck!
By the way; if you are in Namibia maybe you can get Brad and Angelina to adopt you and buy you the ultimate multirotor!!!

Does anyone know of performance specifications of the S800, Standard Pressure/temp is fine for now. I need to have them for a SOFC I am applying for.

In case you are wondering what a SOFC application is or looks like, this is what you have to do for each flight involving gain (money or otherwise) for you to be legal, be prepared!. You will likely have something like this coming your way in the US when the FAA allow it.

S800+Z15(nex7) possible in Antarctica?

Hi
I'm supposted to go to antarctica(Teranova bay) next month with S800+Z15.
Do you think it's possible to fly?
Do you have any experience with wookong-m in antarctica?
Most of friends are pessimistic.

-First maiden flight
Color.of.Bay (3 min 23 sec)

I'll adopt them and they can support me! Maybe they can bring spare parts along on their next trip.

According to the manual, in the notices section of page 38, "MC cannot work in the polar circle". I would say that the closer to the polar circle you are, meaning by polar circle either the Artic or Antarctic polar circles, the harder to fly your WooKong will be.

Terranova Bay is inside the Antarctic circle so my guess is no, it won't work correctly.

In your case, I would mount the Z15 to a 700 class Helicopter and fly it manually.

My thinking is that the compass will not work properly which would not stop you flying but controlling the camera heading may be tricky. I have flow a WKM without a serviceable compass. The accelerometers will drift over time and change your heading. Just fly in manual mode.

Also temps, concerning the Gyros and how the vibration isolation in the IMU is effected be the temps should be considered.

(edit) isn't there a min temp the WKM should be used in and in those areas you would probably push it way over that.

Thanks for reply

Denny You think Z15 will work properly when fly in manual mode?
I hope you understand my short english...^,^

Hi Boris

Temps doesn't matter. I will stay there for two month, and only fly in calm and warm day...

Might want to consider the temperatures of the batteries as well cause I'm sure lipo's don't like the cold. Should be ok but possibly very short flight times.

If the IMU will work in the low temps then the Zen should also work. I sometimes use the zen as a stand alone camera mount and mount the WKM IMU on the top of the Zen mounting bracket. No other model components are used.

The gyro specs. show significant drift outside of the recommended temps. Which may translate into a big trim change. I would suggest some foam board covers for the Batteries and IMU's Builders insulation board is great for a lot of uses like that. It is easy to cut and shape and you can glue it with white glue or silicon.

In Cyprus I have a different problem of keeping every thing cool in the summer

Then you can experiment and tell us.
Bring a bunch of Hand Warmers, http://www.industrialsavings.com/har...FUmd4AodsnkAaQ
Place them around the electronics and use a FC that does not need a compass. If you can choose your flying days, only fly when it is calm, then there is no need for the Z15. Try the HoverFly Sport board, it is very stable.
In that environment you want to keep it simple.
Good luck and keep us posted.

Hi
Maybe you're right.
I'm thinking I would bring S800+Zenmuse or not.
Alternative gear maybe better. I'm not well expericed pilot.
So I need easy flying machine to operate.
Anyway I have droidworx and av130.
Instead of wookong-m, Hoverfly sport board is easy to operate?
