Looks like your copter is swirling around a drain before it goes down the sink.

So if I have a Dx8 what the best way to assign switches ? And how? Kinda confusing for a newb like me. Still waiting for gps to put everything together. Trying to avoid a total screwup. Need a simple step by step directive.

The GPS user reports are sounding good. I was originally thinking of replacing the Naza in my FPV frame in favor of a CC board. The Naza GPS with position hold, and mainly RTH, makes we want to leave the Naza in place and add the GPS. I'm not ready to take that jump yet, but it sure sounds like things are doing good.

In my case I am close to 0 so I set it there. I have a small FPV camera setting below the frame along with some heavy LG and a vTx. The battery, OSD, OSD GPS and eLogger setting on top of the frame. It is pretty well balanced. They always have the FW diagram. It is odd, but they are Chinese.

Van, I will be out of town this weekend, but any time you want to fly mine FPV you are welcome to.

Heck, I don't want to fly your copter...I'd feel horrible if something bad happened. Now maybe I can talk you into letting me 'test drive' the GPS...since you wouldn't let me 'drive' your Mini Cooper!

Then I would have to give it to you. You know that it has to be programed right. LOL. I don't care if you fly mine. You are a much better pilot than I am. You are less dangerous when you are under the goggles than without. No body drives my mini but me.

We shipped the first batch of 50 before we left... so most of those who ordered will get them on Sat. If you received an email from our website with the hoverthings logo and tracking info, then it has shipped. If you received a paypal notice then it was just the label being printed but not shipped, but there were only two of these. The next batch will ship when we return! Still do not have one for myself!
