...just another "overdeveloped" FC - with nothing like those crappy-Videos for Advertising ....lol......
and a Starting price ..i dont even wanna comment !

too many nerds want to make the Big-CASHING with those "Hobby - FC`s".

Light-years away from/for prof. using.
Maybe someone got the Idea and involved a Camera-Pro to develop a FlightControl without all that useless gadgets.
Till that happens its just another overpriced TOY...like those from all the other bigmouth "FC-Manufacturers"
i`m sorry but thats what I can see here

Just wait for a few weeks when people got their hands on the product. There'll be plenty of reviews, vids etc. The discount still applies in September so anyone who's interested can reserve their judgement with enough time to make final purchase decision.

Doesn't really matter how clear the video is as long as we can see something of stability of the craft

Next week will be the key that should finally put this issue to bed, and let the whiners move on to something else. By then there will be enough of us who have these flying, and can post some appropriate videos.

Robert and I go a ways back, and once I saw his involvement, that was enough for me, and I ordered one. It should ship tomorrow. I also trust and value Gary Travis' opinions, as he and I struggled through the Turbo Ace X720 fiasco at the same time, and talked about it. In any case, the proof is in the pudding, as they say, so next week I plan on putting this through its paces. Where I live there is almost always an ocean breeze, which is gusting in nature. This, IMO, is the worst case for achieving accurate stabilization.

Okay guys DJI is not selling a video camera or photo camera they are selling an FC for multirotors I do expect them to be making TV video forget what it looks like and judge the smoothness even in a snowy screen if its smooth thats what I am after. Lets stay on the subject as far as MK there is a thread for them as well lets just stay with the product at hand. As we all know there is no magic bullet but lets get as close as we can its worth giving them the benefit of the doubt for now.

I am all in for new products and I am eagerly awaiting for the release of DJI's multi platform.
But how can they be building and testing a platform without any correctly configured AVP. Were are that platforms videos?
Sorry for my disbelief but I have seen promises made and broken numerous times on rcgroup forums.
It seems that lately a lot of companies are following Mark Zuckerberg's strategy. Release rushed untested products to market, then attempt to fix.

I don't think it is use of DJI to release untested products...

Pants first, then shoes
Man calling him a "bare faced liar" is pretty out there. he clearly was making a point that he didnt see anything that backed up the claim by some that this would be better than MK. Personally Im hoping that it is better than MK. Others had brought up the MK thing and all dimitri did was offer an opposing view with a video that people questioned. If you check out his other videos you will see that he does indeed have some very high quality footage.
This didnt need to get nasty.

But YOU made it about the machines performance when YOU posted a video about how well the MK performed.

And if you are not here to prove anything to anyone why post in the first place ? as to post the video by its very nature is an attempt to provide visual evidence, which is viz a viz an attempt to prove a point, so by those provable facts here for everyone to see, and obtained from your own words and video, i submit that you sir are a bare faced LIAR.

I guess they don't need to produce fancy selfpromoting videos. They just get a few units out to their existing users and then you'll see real-life tests and feedback by those hardcore AP/AV guys. Those looking for selfpromoting videos (for what turns out later to be at most kludgy products) can check out the XA threads
