at least 2012 will be interesting before December 21.
nothing ardu will ever kill anything.. sorry to say... I have wasted far too much time and effort on that project.

price is rumored to be around the same as WKM but if their GCS is anything like the GCS for the Zero UAV fixed wing plane I am in...

not if these companies have entered into some "gentlemen agreement" between them. I'd love to see the price to come down but even Gaui is so adamant to fix their price much beyond the expectation of 330X/XS consumers who had waited for GPS upgrade for so long.

If the performance is anywhere near WKM, with the inclusion of waypoint system the price is reasonable when comparing it to DJI system.

DJI' pricing is horrible. fine the controller can cost 1100$ but to force us into using their modems which cost a stupid amount of money AND they force you to pay 1100$ for EACH GCS for EACH bird you own!!!! insane!!!

I am in good contact at Zero UAV and have requested that we get to use our own data modems (xbee pro) and they have agreed to that... so that is on huge bonus over DJI.

I will ask if the GCS is free as well.. I am hoping it is... these few things will make this substantially cheaper and more powerful than DJI.

Since you are in contact with them can you tell us more about the system? When will it be available?

Does it have a user accessible motor mix table? I require a custom motor mix so lack of that is a deal breaker.

Can we see a sample of the user interface software?

I only know the snippets I can squeeze from them.

dates sound like around May of this year for release (at best)
I have requested PID tuning
I don't know for certain about mixer tables but I will request (I just assumed it has it)
I don't have the interface software but I do have the GCS for the zero uav fixed wing. It's really good. I am pretty sure it will use the same GCS.
I have been told it will have the target locking like the uav
I have been told it will have a sonar option for landing

anything else I can ask but can't promise either an answer or guarentee that answer will actually come to pass... you know how it is with these companies
