I've read the manual, some thoughts about SuperX system:

1) The gains are tuning only via AUX2 channel? No settings in software? It looks not comfortable, its better to set it via software (knob can be touched between flights, channel can be used for other functions, beeper or switching lights for example). Imho this option must be tunable, and user must have the choice.
Fixed, thanks to NaterPin.

2) Blackbox feature is cool, but the route is playable only via Xaircraft web-interface? But what will happen after 2-3 years when project will be closed? User will loose this feature? Imho its better to have standalone application. Another way is to open log file format, and allow user to make his own parser or use 3rd party one.

3) All settings are changed only via USB cable? OMG, its 2013 year now, not 2005 - wireless connection is really better. Even 30$ multiwii board have ability of connecting Bluetooth and change settings with smartphone or laptop.

4) OSD is really overpriced. Really-really We all know, that MinimOSD is only 25$, and Xaircraft OSD also does not have any sensors inside, it taking data from controller. So, even with a beautiful case its price cannot be higher than 50-60$. 189$ is too much, for this price the complete solution as APM 2.5 + GPS + Bluetooth + OSD can be taken.

5) I don't see current sensor for SuperX. If the system is designed for FPV, battery monitoring is really needed.

6) Compass calibration. Please check how YS-X4/X6 do it: after the process, it displaying circle with calibration results.

Its much better for user, and allow to give fine results.

Thats all I understand that big companies usually ignore users feedback, but some things can really be improved.

1: The "Gain" is able to be done in the software. You can disconnect the transmitter feature. This option is tune-able, the user does have the choice.

2: I agree it would be good be able to load it on to open source software too. But they are being careful, how fast they release stuff and what they say they are working on. Because if they say they are working on "waypoints" some "NUMPIES" will buy the system wait two weeks and raise "heck" because they have not enable waypoints.

3: Agree it should be able to be done wireless. They have an Apple app in the works so Android will follow.

4: OSD is pricey. But there might be more to it that is to come.

5: I would like to see current draw too

6: Circles on a screen does not make for fine calibration. Keeping the process easy to do and reliable does. Zero does have some nice features.

Rabone.
Yes you can use normal ESCs and flashed ESCs both will work. You would pick the normal ESC box. for both. The ultraPWM ESC refers to the Xaircraft ESCs.
