Well i got the assistant and i did not see the new height limitation. Anybody spotted where it is located ? I would try it but it seems to add nothing new except the height limit which is a feature i don't really need nor do i see a very practical use for it...

Yeah you are right and i apologize. I meant manual mode. Most of the time i takeoff and land in manual mode. i prefer having direct control over the throttle. Also if the copter gets stuck in something (like grass) i see and "feel" it faster in manual mode. That is just a personal preference.

Llevo el kit de DJI, el S800 con el Z15 y la NEX 7.. no hay más !!!! Todo lo recomendado por el fabricante, no he aportado casi nada nuevo al kit.

Un saludo.

Iceman...
In countries like France, they are bringing in new regulations for professional users...such as height limitations and also distance limitations.

The new FW has the user selectable height restriction, i.e.the MR will not go past the entered height limit.

I would imagine that the next FW update will include the user selectable distance from Home Point??

These functions can be turned off, however, they are very important for professional use and I think more countries will require this type of regulation in the future.

The setting is in the Tools menu at the top of the assistant software.

My arms, hands neck and eyes are hurtin for a certain....

and the s800 arms are perfect, all new, upgraded ESC's, New Balanced Props...ext...

Im just sayin, What a Pain in the A $ $ this was! not fun at all, and to think they will still be flimsy plastic

The only silver lining is they are new and nice and I will be back in the air soon..

A full day! that's a very long time to put together 6 arms. Each ESC has 7 solder connections and there are 8 screws. It was taking me 45 minutes (each arm) to replace the ESCs when the V4 came out, that was dismatle and rebuild.

One of the things that many people find annoying about the DJI models is these screw sets that they use. I have had it in my mind to make a few kits of alternative screw sets for the whole model. The screws that come with the model are OK for their intended use which is for strapping down pc boards etc. However for structural integrity of the model itself where locktite is used, then a typical ball driver will in all probability strip out the hex. drive.
The idea of holding down a vital component such as the prop. with just two of these screws is bordering on economic stupidity IMHO.

Lol @ Danny,
Are you sure you haven't mixed up your thread lock bottle with your cy glue bottle.

Yes the s800 prop, prop bolts and flimsy arm is a joke.

If Dji had a good thinker like the lotus guys they would have used round carbon tubes in the middle of the arms alloy for the motor and arm frame mont.
