Thanks! Noob mistakes

My IMU´s arrow is pointing directly backwards. Question: Will I get better stability/flight characteristics with these SimonK modified ESC:s compared to the stock Turnigy Plushs I have at the moment?

In my opinion I have never used the SimonK firmware so cannot make real judgement? but I think the difference will be so small you would not notice?

I have quite a few of those and they are perfect for the job.
Any esc that has been flashed with the Simonk firmware is set at 400mHz.
If you hear clicking when the motors spin that means is out of sync. The Simonk firmware it speeds up the timming of the esc so the motors are running smooth.

Hi there,

This thread is very technical. How, this or that, doesn't work, what settings do you use?!... an so forth. How about a simple question for a change?! I am sure all of you looked at other flight controllers but ended up with the Wookong - M. I wonder why?! Do you mind telling me why you picked this over some other system?!

thanks,

G

People use the DJI wookong because it is extremely plug-and-play compared to all the other full-feature fc out there.

The NAZA is a better choice for both price and simplicity if you are looking for just a stable multi rotor to start with. Add the GPS for the RTH and pos hold and your pretty close to the wookong setup, just without the option (pricey option) for waypoint and autonomous navigation

Andy,

thanks for the fast reply. What you are saying, makes totally sense and I actually thought that might be the reason. Who wants to sit there and go through that horrible documentation and start soldering... on the other hand, who wants to spend almost $3000 so you can have way points, when the others charge $250?!
I am sure that you are longer involved in this, than I am. I could tell you, what to get when it comes to Helis and Cars, but not Multirotors. What is the word on the street?! What system is the most reliable, is one of the more important factors for me.

thanks,

Georgios

I am a giant Naza+GPS fan. Bang for the buck is amazing.

I am about to start my Y6 build and will probably get a WKM just to play with and to test out some of it's features. That and if I find myself with $3500 burning a hole in my pocket i'll pick up Z15 and will need the WKM anyway.

If I were just getting started... NAZA + GPS can't be beat.
