Nice one, where did you get that power PCB?

Kind of funny having a DJI autopilot on a Mikrokopter plate

I've a feeling 50% of DJI purchasers were MK users. The next 50% are a mix of Xaircraft, hoverfly, Kk, Openpilot & new quad users.

Lol! It's a distribution board from kkmulticopter.kr, but I don't use the switch that comes with it.
Yeah, solutions are found with anything that is under your hands , so thanks MK ..

Care to elaborate?
With that "rolls eyes" gif in your reply, I'm not sure if that's a serious reply or not.
Please enlighten me...if you are serious, at what point do I gain throttle control?
If you are joking..you won't be when if I launch this this straight up with no control and expect you to help cover the costs of replacing it.

By the way....what's the difference between the new $1000 WK-Ms and the 2 $1199 ones I bought a couple weeks ago?

I've read that on the OpenPilot platform if you use CPPM the PWM inputs that you are not using can be programmed to become PWM outputs. That is one way CC can run an octo.

@Sidney/DJI:
I guess the question I'd like answered is whether or not the MC inputs can be re-programmed to operate as outputs. If not, whether or not S-bus or PPM is used will make no difference in terms of solving the issue with being able to use the gimbal servo outputs with an octo/X8 configuration. Actually, I guess an X8 setup can still be supported, by "Y"-ing the ESCs from each arm. Not something I'd expect on a "pro"-type system, with a pro-type price, but whatever.

Although I have an X8 right now, I've been planning to do a larger Y6, so this is probably going to be a non-issue for me. I was hoping to move this to the X8 first, though, as it currently has my mkTR Pro mount on it.

You have to live in China to get them for that price. I was told the price was lower in domestic market cus of many reasons and they promote domestic market 1st They even advertise on bbs.5imx for $1000 but only if you live or visit china as they told me

The USA DJI site shows them now at $1000.
I'm not so concerned with that.

I'm more concerned about whether I should take Mr DJI's comment seriously about having nothing but Zero or Full throttle.

Edited to add:

If my question seems too silly...my apologies. I didnt design the thing, and I'm not an electronics engineer. Mr DJI, I can't do what you do, nor could you do my job. I'm just trying to figure out how to make your stuff work with my stuff.

Edited again:
Now the USA site is back to the 1199.00 price. It was $1000.00 all day today.

I'm sure it's something I've overlooked, and appreciate some advice.
Make sure the "command stick calibration" is set correctly in the software. As the manual indicates, throttle up = slider moves to the right; throttle down = slider moves to the left.

I would imagine that was a slight miscalculation. I highly doubt DJI ran an unadvertised sale, probably was just a mistake on the web developers part.
