No gimbal, Gopro zip tied to the body. Btw., I was flying my skywalker a couple of times right before and @3:43, I thought let's glide a bit....realized fast I was in a quad.

Just took a major crash into a tree...

My whole frame broke.. and I think my battery isn't looking too hot. My gopro got sliced by a blade (just the frame). Propellers broke again.

Sigh... this is getting frustrating. I will be back.

man.. just fried my $299 gopro using a fpv wire harness.. wont be doing THAT again! Heading off to get another gopro but the cheaper version..lol I am waiting for the new batteries to come in to test the issue with nthe up and down. I did everything but use higher C batteries in the 5000mah range. Still wants to be finicky with the 40-90C batteries but flies fine with the 45C and above. So weird since it was flying just perfectly with the 40C 5000mah batts just the day before with no changes made to anything.

not sure... if you do the math, my crappy 5000 20C might draw 100 amps, but i already measured my F550 w/6 motors and it doesn't draw more than 45A at full thrust.

You may have other issues

the issues would be on the multi rotor then because I have a few batts all the same size/amp/volt/etc...
all with the same reactions. The smaller but higher C rated batts work perfectly.

Thats bad!!!! Well, the frame arms are only $3.00 each so your not out too much. The props are $8.00 a full set you should be flying in a day!. I allways had a big amount of all the extras I have many new motors still in the packs, I have 5 compleate frame kits worth of parts, along with factory ESCs.

it sucks... but I'll be rebuilding.

I'm also thinking about getting a flight simulator.
Gotta practice more without breaking the bank.

Would digital servos be better? Or is this just a feature of the NAZA?
Update: with judicious use of earplug foam and sorbothane I have eliminated all jello from my GoPro but still see the jerky servo movement in the video, mostly in pitch which drives the camera directly. The roll servo drive is indirect and seems better damped. Even using the TX "AUX" knob to adjust pitch with the quad sitting on the ground with motors not running the servo moves in tiny but discrete 'click's which are audible on the audio and can be seen in the picture.

Do others have this problem?

Frsky D8R-II PLUS

I've just replaced my Specktrum Receiver in my Quad for a Frsky D8R-II PLUS,

all seems ok in DJI Assistant 1.8, but not in PPM mode only traditional,
and then when all calibrated, the Motors won't arm....

Do I need to update firmware of the Receiver?
Will it work in PPM mode?
