down (or vertical), but also the same for the TX antenna, also up or down (vertical).
As far away from any CFK, (Aluminium, ...) as possible. If you have two antennas, both should point down.

best regards

Thanks,

The problem was discussed in the first pages of this thread: when you tighten the screws that hold the rod end the rods get bent.

Here it is, although don't get to excited! Lol
DJI S-800 and Zenmuse Z-15 Camera Mount, 2nd Flight, Off Board and On Board Video Footage. RAW

Not bad but still needs some tuning. Plus some vibration has caused a small piece of dust to drop from with-in the camera on to the sensor but not on the front, so can't remove it and it's annoying once you spot it, so looks like the camera needs to be sent to Sony for a service... Arrrr

What lense were you using? Also why you cannot use other similar mirrorless camera?

Doh! My bad--didn't mean to be so annoying. I think I confused having read this thread with a different one.

I have one small problem.

When I was removing the motor to reach the ESCs, one nut inside the arm got busted. And I can't tighten the screw anymore. Any ideas how to solve this?

Hi!

I'm ordering an S800 today from my local dealer which I'll be getting in 2 weeks time. Will I be getting an edition that doesn't need the esc fix?

How do you like being able to control the pan? Everyone talks about only using the pan feature with a second operator; but, for sport flying, it seems that controlling the pan as a solo pilot would be quite handy, especially if and when retractable landing gear come out.

Thanks for the vid!
