Yup, and Raja is a very good, very experienced pilot. We all lose it sometimes! Man I hope Mikado adds an auto recovery option to VBar.

i am sort of surprised i have heard very very little about the NAZA-H system, none of the podcasts have covered it and nothing has jumped out at me ( i havent gone looking either) but i am very interested as i am extremely happy with the unit on my multirotor and planned to dive back into helis with a synergy E5 this year....i suck horribly though and the bail out option it has interests me.

I haven't heard anything about the Naza H either. There must be threads on it but I barely read the forums these days. If you find anything please send me a link.

It is fairly new and VERY expensive. There are videos on YouTube.

Align also has a system that works with the 3GX. The Skookum GPS is in development.

its almost the same price as the naza-m with GPS right so around $400? if that saves a 550 heli two or three times its paid for itself. Its already paid for itself on my multirotor as it has brought it back from certain doom a couple times. That and i really really hate rebuilding and setting up a heli over and over again.

That NAZA is the least expensive.

All Things That Fly Web Site Down..?

Is the allthingsthatfly.com web down....I'm getting Internal Server Error message(s) - date/time was Tues 1/22 7:40 AM EST.

This is not the first time over say the last week+, that I've seen this error.

What's the scoop?

Thanks,
-mike-

Site problems

Sorry guys, the site is having some problems. The good news is I was able to download tonight's new episode right in the middle of allthingsthatfly.com not loading, so I don't think it's affecting your ability to listen to new shows via iTunes or RSS. If that's not the case please PM me right away. In the mean time I'll keep plugging away on getting the site back up consistently but whatever's wrong is not obvious.
