New retracts coming looks interesting and the price is almost half DJI's powered from the RX, they say about 3 more weeks

----------------
New retractable set for the S800:

S800 RDDS Retractable direct drive system

Easy to rebuild your existing set.
NO servo,s of poor quality , instead we use Direct Drive system, no metal links or springs like original system links!
Feed directly from Receiver max power needed is 200 mAh for the complete system and simple to use by a single switch .

Black anodised and hardened alloy CNC machined NO plastic

Anyone using graupner hott for the zenmuse? How many volts does the telemetry shows?
Because I get quite often alarm sounds from the camera radio that receiver has almost empty battery.

I usually always talk in my videos, but disabled the audio because of too many kids making a ruckus in the background.

The new firmware gets rid of the screen that says "Processing" after taking a picture before it shows it on the screen (or vtx downlink). This improvement really only help if you use an image review setting.

Shot this video at a local Cars and Coffee event. It was my first real outing with the S800 and Zenmuse. Lots of ways to improve, overall not a bad first video.

Wow. One FOD and you would lose your assuming you only hit someones car. Hit a person and it's game over.

Am I the only person that is afraid to fly over the general publics head?

Need a good Liability insurance to be fully covered.
6kg falling with cf props spinning is like a rocket from Gaza to Jerusalem.
I wouldnt go that way, to reckless and selfish flying imo.

No your not, safety first only those involved in the production get near my 800, and thats not my rule that's the aviation authorities rule.

hi i have s800 zenmuse gh2.

this is my first flight.
prvi let (1 min 29 sec)


I didn't used 2nd remote control. zenmuse was only connected to wookong. Zenmuse and wookong are updated with last firmware. I am happy since it was first flight but still i noticed a lot of jello in video. I am using gains suggested by DJI for S800+zenmuse. battery that i used is 6s gensace 10000mAh. Since i saw a lot of videos regarding s800 and z15 i saw that all of them are smooth with out jello effect .

Can u suggest what can i do in my config to remove jello so i can get nice videos like all of u.

gains? balancing props? move a bit z15 forward or backward? pls give me some suggestions so i can fly and record without jello

tnx and cheers

Interesting... do you use the ring to support the lens? is the lens the one supported (due balance)? are you using the recommended settings - at the end of the documentation? can you take pictures of the zenmuse with the camera on?

I also had jello on my stock S800 with the Nex-5n. There where a LOT of high frequency vibes. Didn't look to bad until i touched it in flight. I changed to XOAR props (you need to balance them) and stiffened up the arms. Since then no more jello.
