So if we cannot trust the info on the DJI HP, whom can we trust

I am going to make sure ... BEC support 4S to 12S. S-800 up to 6S.

It is also printed on the Z15-controller: 14-52V, makes also sense, since with WKH ore ACE one, it is quite common to use 12S (for helicopters)

Made my first 2 flights with the zenmuse and gh2. Still have to tweak the settings a bit but it is already way better than any other gimball I have used so far.

I mounted it on my custom built x8.

Looks a little to big for the Zenmuse:

For those not using the S800, what size of rename and configurations are you running with the Z15 (ie frame, motors, lipos, etc)?

Looking for some various air-frame options beyond the S800, most likely a hex with 4S.

I'm not sure if you realize but for the majority of that video they had the battery grip installed on the GH3. Without that the camera is only slightly larger than the current GH2.

Ok, it is confirmed. 12S can be used... in reality the output is only 12V even the input is 52V from 12S because there is a built in BEC in the GCU to keep output to Zenmuse motors at 12V.

Hugy, can you please post some pictures of your octo with the Z15 hooked up. I'm curious to see how people are mounting the Z15 to custom frames. Thanks.
