Yes, but that still doesn't change the fact that it is a crappy video.

thanks buddy nice to know that you are not alone.
I second you, i hope it will be better then mk, although nothing saying about it yet.
I wonder what some people are just hoping that one miraculous day they can buy cheap pnp device, and immediately get all that previously had to spend tons of time and money.
That's why they are so angry when they see this day delayed a little again..

cheers

Dimitri,
I think that there have been so many promising starts and then let downs the multirotor community is hopeful but then wary at the same time.

I think it individuals perspective depends mostly on their own experiences. I have a HoverflyPro board and I love it. For me its been fantastic and any problems I have had with the board have all ended up being a problem that wasnt the board but some other component or build issue. However there are others who have had genuine problems so their view of the HFP is not good.
I know some guys who are having the most appalling time with the MK stuff and others who have had a dream run. A friend of mine in Aussie has had his completely RTF MK for over a 6 weeks and still hasnt got any decent AP from it. Another guy i know had his fly perfectly and is getting great footage after a week.

Same deal with Open Pilot and Copter Control. Im having a battle getting mine to fly right but the majority of users are having a great time. My problems with the CC board are 99% likely to be my own making.
So there are some very experienced people on these forums who want to see a real competitor to Mk but are also sceptical having seen so many fail to deliver on initial promise and from that comes the grumpyness.

Also everyone has their own specific needs from their machines and so end up making judgements based on how a new product will fit their needs rather than the intended design of any new product. It also doesnt help that so many new products dont deliver on their most basic initial claims. The T580 being a good example oif that.

Im looking forward to seeing how people in here find the DJI after a few months of use. Hopefully its as good as it initially looks.

Speaking of good footages, does WK have a support for camera gimbal stabilization?

Yes it does, look at the gimbal config screen, the WK-M manual page 11.

That's not correct. Here's the Gimbal section from the WK-M manual:

OOPS I'm sorry it looks like it does. I didnt think it had cam stab as I looked over the website and it does not mention cam stab at all. Unless I missed it.
