That was probably my cruddy camera. And I added the gimbal and moved the battery so I need to adjust the gyro sliders in the program. To compensate for moving the components around.
As for the Naza I have owned 3 and currently have a lite version. And I just don't loike them. They fly ok to me. But they too jitter a lot. And I just don't trust them. But that is my experiences.

Why don't you tuning with your radio. Slider or knob will do.

As for the APM 2.6 it does take sometime but it is a very capable powerful system. The Naza is nice too but I think the Super X is the easiest to setup.

Look at the bushes next to the ground. There is wind for sure. That isn't a big machine either.

The one I built and flying is a x650 but it is not the pro. It has the smaller motors and props

Most of that is prop wash.... not all but most. As he said he still needs to tune it. Canadian geek ran the same system for a bit and it was solid.

This is true of any open-source EFC, not just APM. Before I got to the "over a year" point, I bailed and got a Super X.

Right, the APM will go on the bay then. I've had the thing for a couple of months but haven't got around to installing it. Every time I set aside some time I end up spending it flying rather than taking it apart.
SuperX here I come.

TC3,
I've been reading about the APM 2.6 for my custom Apollo frame project. This Super X sounds like a nice FC for that project too. Do you think the Super X IO and FC box will fit happily in the Apollo? How do you compare the Super X to the Apollo FC?

Any chance of IOC on this controller? Naza has this.

With the stability of the GPS I really don;t see the need for IOC, and I hardly know anyone who uses IOC that has a naza. But from my understanding they will be updating the firmware with several cool things over the next while, so stay tuned!

You won't regret it. Stop tuning and start flying!

Hey guys, i just finished a review of some Avroto HEAVY LIFt motors, that review will be up in the next day or so, but check out the video I did for that review. I used the SuperX on a Hexacrafter and it performed FLAWLESSLY even toting a 9lb gallon of water. I did not have to change the gain settings even when adding the 9lb payload. Simply awesome. SuperX rules. I just ordered my 3rd SuperX, soon my whole commercial fleet will be on SuperX.
