Yes because the stab would rely on the supplied gyros and no because YS-X6 has a lot more features than Naza GPS. Would be interesting to see how the glyder performs in a waypoint flying mode.

hi,
do you mean why I make it with Aluminum?
for light weight and stronger frame,
and most Aluminum part doesn't get broken during a crash,
you only need to change the 11mm arms ,saving cost.
thanks

MAX is 12 '' propeller.
with 1038 propeller, 2216 KV800 T motor gets best effiency with 14.8V lipo
you can also try 2814 KV700, 1238 propeller.
but in our test, that combination got less stability,
so that's why we finally choose 2216 motor.

why we use naza is because of the cost of course.
NAZA could be the only choice to get good fly performance with lower cost.
you can use YS-X6 of course or other controller like WKM etc.
thanks

Fu, what do you think about using 2212 KV920 + 10x5 props on it?
Any videos in a bit more windy conditions available?

we may offer an upgrade kit to make it possible to control by a servo
This is a must for anything more than fpv

400gr limit is acceptable but did you try balancing it with something having longer lenses?

Can't remember I mentioned 400g payload, the recent test shows 600g is no problem.
with 5000mah 4S lipo.
you can adjust the battery position to compensate the camera with longer lens.
I will show more setting videos soon.
thanks
Fu

Wow 600g is very good. You did mentioned somewhere 400g. But you can always take it back and prove a better result This frame sounds like a real deal. The videos posted already showing good results. Especially the one with the windy conditions. However since you are making changes on the frame it would be nice to have videos with the final version of the frame.

we offer a setup of T MOTOR 2216+ 1038 propeller.
acceptable efficiency, stable fly performance.

You mentioned it here.
But this is good news anyway, that it could carry more than 400g. Nice.

Fu,

I am planning to go with a nex 5n which weighs around 300g with the lens i am planning to use. Does that mean my battery needs to be also at 300g to have a good counterweight ratio? I will just answer my own question here for others with the same question... The battery tray is adjustable it can slide up and down to in order to balance the steadicam camera mount.
Also till when do you offer pre order discount?
And lastly what servo size is used? (Standard , park, micro?)

yes , we will do ,the change will make the tilt performance even better, since you can find on the old frame design, the tilt spring holding poles are not in the middle of the gimbal.

not exactly, like I mentioned in the video, the counter weight pole can be adjusted, so you can put on battery with around 400-600g weight,
just make it totally balanced , then it should be ok.
thanks
Fu

also, bigger motor makes it with bigger payload, but I think 500-600g camera weight is quite enough ,since we designed it carry cameras up to Sony 5N only.

Is it possible to configure into a X8?, I prefer the redundancy of a X8

Cheers!

With a 4s 8A battery and the Tmotors suggested you should be getting out of it about 6 minutes of flight time given you ll not exceed 75% throttle stick but the weight of that battery is about 850g which will make it hard to balance the steaicam. Foxtech suggested a battery weight between 400-600g for balancing with the Sony Nex 5n. I guess going with a little heavier camera might do the trick bbut i don't know if the frame can support it.
