That's what you get when a product goes to the mass market. There will always be dumb-ass'es taking too many risks when their gear and/or their skills isn't good enough/redundant enough.

I have an older WKM that I put back in the box for now. Too many problems but my two MK's have been flawless..so far.

I tried the flag with geo-maps but it's finicky. The odd time it will come up in english. I used the map tool you linked and it was easy.

I agree with you on that one. People see the vids and say "I can do that". The operator should stick to shooting pics and leave the flying to the more experienced pilots. Even with oodles of experience, flying over all those people should be a no no, they have no place to run in all those seats.

Their stuff is not bad, for me stuff of main concern is the distro board, and BL's; not quiet bullet proof. FC, Navi-Ctrl and GPS I'm happy with.

Agreed, not bad at all. The core flight algorithm is still state of the art.

I really like the dist boards, but would like a 6s enabled FC..

Sorry I am not familiar with F2M03GXA modules setup.
Maybe someone else can help?

I do realize you would need to be fast...what 3secs to fall from 100ft with a total failure.
