why would you spend more money on that when you can have a NAZA kit RTF with better quality motors and a indestructible frame...

My Hex has a NAZA and when its not falling out of the sky it flies incredibly well.

I have not flown it nearly as much as my quad or Y6, both with a CC board, but my first impression is that this is about the best sub $500 controller available.

I have some footage just hovering around, not terribly exciting but I'l post it as soon as it finishes uploading.

When I get a chance I will edit some of the 40min of video to 3min. I will say that I was unimpressed with flying the 10x5 Graupners. Some of it was the conditions. I will have a better idea once I take a look at the video.
so the graupners not worth it ed? i thought everyone was swearing by them

Sorry I misunderstood, I don't know what an XA-Hexa frame is. I'm using Rusty's UAP-1 frame it is very configurable.

The first set of motors where these: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=18228

There was a little bit of jello in my GoPro footage so as part of my post crash repair I decided to replace these with the Avroto 2814's. The Turnigy's were 1000KV and seemed punchier at lift off, the Avroto's are very smooth and appear to be a lot more efficient, but that may not be the case, I only had two flights on the Turnigy's.

I have the Avroto's on my Y6 and that thing flies great, I'm really looking forward to the NAZA working on a Y6.

BUT seriously this thread is for support for ANYONE who bought naza no matter where, please do not turn it into a SELLING thread,

1 perfect good reason not to by from witespy quad is he is not a RCG Site Sponser
( ALL the other dealers are site sponsors)

You do have a point. Tons of posts selling, and not even on his thread. Should be a site sponsor. I think this should be a Naza support thread not a Witespy For sale thread. Don't see the Rusty Frames or Frankenquad and some of the others posting on all the threads pushing sales.
