Controller calibrates is very cool. Where you ordered it?

So If we are limited to 7Kg of AUW then with the gear it will be much higher if it weighs 900Gr.
Then we have to eliminate on e battery if we are running parallel, right?

as you might know, is it not the same to everyone ...

it depends on the position of the IMU where you mount your battery tray, the weight of your batteries and the position of the gimbal ...

it pretty much differ from copter to copter.


so, it might be better figure out where the COG is and to go from there



sorry not to be more of a help!

So I reworked the cheesy xcraft gopro gimbal and ditched the little futaba servos for some Futaba S9350, what a difference!

Flew it yesterday which marks the 94th flight on my S800...

Today will upgrade the firmware and give it a go...wish me luck!

DJi states max weight for s800 is 7 KGs
Have they tested this at 5000 asl in the mountains? Will it fly?

QUESTION FOR ALL THAT USE THE SONY NEX5N

Does anyone here see the over heat and their camera's shut down when recording video?

Mine does and I read all over the Net about this issue, this problem is what is holding me back from buying the Z-15 for Nex gimbal, and the GH2 has its own set of issues from what I read.

It's not another 900gr. You remove the old landing gear which weight about 500gr. So the retracts add about 350gr. It is quite something but not as bad as 900...

I fly my hexa carbon frame with zenmuse but without landing gears.
Zero vibrations.
Total weight is 4,7kg with one 5000mah 6s and flight time 7 min.
Or with 2 lipos, total weight is 5,4kg and it can fly for 13-14 min.
... and landing at 20% battery remain.
For start I use a platform, for landing I mounted a very light weight hand-held on left copter arm, I take it easily and going down with motor stick, after 3 seconds copter will swtich off automatically!! Super easy.
