Sounds like this should be a pretty good flight controller.

Have you seen the videos. it seems pretty darn solid. but ofcorse it needs to be in the consumers hands to really get an accurate review.

Well If it does have the baro, mag, acc and all that in one little box will be a great alternative to the 330x, the xa450, and even the kk type boards.

Since he took apart the WKM, I would assume that he would do the same to the NAZA. His estimate for the MU and IMU from his blog is $20 and $150, so that would make the cost $170. If they are selling at $220 that doesn't make for a lot of margin either for the dealer or the manufacturer. That is unless they are planning to sell like a million of them or they have changed the components to reduce the cost.

Timecop is one of the most knowledgable people when it comes to quads, and I respect his views... But ask yourselfs what else offers you the same featurese at the same price on the market today? Wether the components equal $50/$100 or more... If it does the same as the wm-k in Atti mode then that's worth $220 in anybody's money!

Trying to figure a manufacturers parts cost is useless if you really think about it.

There is a lot of R&D and what the market will demand etc...

With that said, $220 for a all in one plug and play controller that has Attitude and Altitude hold is amazing. Plus we offer FREE Two Shipping If you simply email us at Reserve@DJIUSA.com

so maybe a group of us should hold off a month after the release of NAZA and wait for the "xmas" special coupon for $100-$150? and free frame?

I've been mostly good this year. Maybe Santa will be good to me.

My question, is it capable of controlling a 2 axis camera gimbal? If it does I'll swap the WKM on my quad for one and put the WKM on my Droidworx frame.

If it's just another sport flying controller that has auto level, I have plenty of those and don't need another one.

I must admit that I am looking forward to the release of this Naza board, and to comparing it to the OP-CC. I'm thinking that if this board lives up to the videos that it will be the most appropriate FPV board available. That is, since it has alt hold and since it appears to be pretty doggone stable it will be great for those of us learning FPV!

I gotta also admit that, just like TimeCop, I sure wish DJI would implement the option to use a PPM Sum controller on this puppy!! I'm a bit baffled as to why that doesn't happen, but I'm certainly not upset about it.

Maybe a good compromise would be to include three 'female to female' short servo extension wires with every purchase so that connecting my RX won't be an exercise in digging through the parts drawer(s)!!
