Don't believe everything you read

That information may not be correct.
I was suspicious of it when I last looked at the spreadsheet.
There are pilots using the plush 30A.
HobbyKing has recently upgraded the circuitry and programming causing some newer Plushes not to work.
I've just glanced at posts about this, but I believe if your ESC's have ver.3.1 on them, they are the older, quad friendly edition.
Better research this to get comfortable with it...
By the way, the multirotor mega index still lists Plush as a suitable ESC.

Based on the shadow of the craft in the video, he's using a GoPro in it's waterproof case slung low enough to dip the camera only into the water and continue to fly.
Clever...

First two flights went really well. I toned down the Manual mode rates to 110% and it's flying like a champ.

I have no oscillations and felt in complete control the entire time.

Thanks for the help and advice!

Hallow fellow modelers.
A friendly advice: Don't fly Naza on 72MHz R/C.
DJI NAZA VHF RF GARBAGE SPEWAGE FAIL [72MHz] (0 min 53 sec)

moar info: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1702739
(Unfriendly advice would be don't fly Naza at all, but that isn't the right thread for it).

Oh, he's still around.
He drives a brown truck and you have to pay him for his services.

NAZA and EZuhf compatibility?

I have a EZuhf for my Zephyr and want to use it on my quad with NAZA. Are they compatible and is it an easy hookup/connection?

Thx,

CD
