Same here, no matter how I change the arms M6 is out of sync on 5.16.
Does the same if I only plug 2 arms in any combination into M6 and M(x).
WKM is V2, ESC's are V4...

Good to know it still seems safe to fly... DJI???

Another new retractable skid for s800, much better price, and looks to be lighter
they say delivery about 3 weeks

from there post

----------------
New retractable set for the S800:

S800 RDDS Retractable direct drive system

Easy to rebuild your existing set.
NO servo,s of poor quality , instead we use Direct Drive system, no metal links or springs like original system links!
Feed directly from Receiver max power needed is 200 mAh for the complete system and simple to use by a single switch .

Black anodised and hardened alloy CNC machined NO plastic

DJI Retracts are better in my opinion...

Personally I would stick with DJI as I trust the quality and engineering plus am iffy about other manufacturers but here is another option for S800 retracts:

http://secraft.net/shop/step1.php?number=1316

The look a hell of a lot better than the previous post at pimp-your-copter (i hope they aren't the same lol, maybe it's the red)... I would love to get a set of each (DJI/Secraft) to compare and review. I imagine DJI will start selling the parts without the bipod hence the heavier price tag. Last I saw $799 was DJI's list price but when you think about it $450 for the bipod and $350 for the retract parts it all adds up. It isn't that others are selling these systems cheaper, they are just giving you less parts. If you look carefully you will see that DJI's retracts are superior:

http://www.dji-innovations.com/produ...skid/overview/

At first glance DJI's have been designed to sit very close to the H-Frame with no parts hanging down.



Where as the Secraft version has parts that sit a lot lower to the Z15 which gives you more chance of getting little black stubs in your video when you pan...



That said they do have really cool Tx/FPV trays...

I'd suggest a strong look at the DX10t. I love the buttons on the sticks. I can pitch up and down, and snap pitches all while my fingers never leave the sticks. I never thought I'd love the tray style but I'm growing to love it more and more.

The ruling looks good, but it's absolute selling point is digital video transmission, if it comes as advertised, it will be one of the only options open for people who need to shoot for money.

Yes seems to be and DJI is about double the price for a heavier set, I personally think they have been out engineered, it would be great to see some one do some tests to compare

Yes I know that feeling I am going to have to lose something to keep using my 8FG, probably the switch to down /up on the zenmuse, I can still get the same by panning

When you draw a straight line from the lens to the end of the S800 arm (even without prop), then you will see the stump is not a problem. If you see the stump in your video, then you would also see the arm (and propeller)
