Once you have gone through a successful Naza set up moving to the WKM is not difficult. A three position switch to set up vs two. The rest is very similar.

Naza setup was cake, once I realized I had a control surface reversed... So this gives me hope. =)

You do have to calculate the Center of Gravity, and set the location of the IMU and GPS relative to the CoG. Not difficult but you have to read the instructions to make sure that you don't reverse the positive and negative numbers. You also have to deal with calibrating the compass. But if your three position switch is set up correctly that is a simple process as well.

This is ALL good, Very good. Can't wait!!!

care free = uses compass so no matter which way quad is facing, pitch 'forward' always pitches forward.

with quadx, bumblebee = naza - gimbal stabilization.

is there a video showing care free? bc i still dont quite get it. and does anybody use the rabbit? i was thinking about buying it to try it out. but the xjet guy on youtube says to avoid goodluckbuy bc they are terrible at packaging stuff. im not planning on using a gimball so the bumble bee is probably better for me than right?

I've bought from GLB on ebay and it wasn't any worse packed than anything else I ever bought from China.

So the same factory in SZ got 2 doors.

Front door : " DJI "
Back door : "Bumblebee"

Don't be surprised there is another side door : Employee selling off into black market ! This is how the chinese do businesses.

Not as difficult as a MK and no soldering! You still need to tune it to match your multi. Some people have had issues with esc's. The Plush series seems to work well and are not expensive but there are many others. You need a digital Tx and Rx, 8ch or better if you are planning to use a gimbal and tune your gains from your Tx. Also it requires a Windows machine to run the software. You can also use a Mac running a Windows emulator. 32bit or 64bit are both supported by the Assistant software. However, if you want to expand to the Ground Station, it only supports 32bit right now.

Considering I've been doing multi-rotor for less than 10 days, I may be in over my head with the WK-M.. especially after the horror stories from TC on what it takes to configure it... Time will tell, I suppose.
That plan sounds almost exactly like mine. I'm waiting for the F450 w/Naza right now from DJIUSA. Thinking about ordering the WK-M for the next one and I have not received the first one yet - lol. I am waiting for the new DJI frame to come out.
