I almost bought one of these before the NAZA. Ill bet in the next two years we will see more development and advancements in these controllers. Maybe one with waypoint capability within my budget.

My only issue with these is it seems more DIY and being new to flight controllers I worry about getting it flying right. I'm spoiled with the NAZA.

I really like your cub. My wife bought me the Great Planes kit for Christmas our first year married. She insisted it be wrapped and would not let me start it before the 25th. I started it but never completed and sold it to a guy in our club. I still kick myself in the ass for doing that. Maybe ill buy another someday.

That video is down right inspirational to me! If you recall my original setup was in a Cessna. That my dream FPV setup. Wish I could find out what his setup is on that plane.
