What's included in the price? I thought I read in another thread that motors, ESCs, & props were included.

How will this frame work with the Naza FC?

Thanks.

Please explain the intentions of Dji in dealing with the obvious issue of landing struts in the way of the 360 degree pan on this s800

I cannot understand how such an anomaly could be missed during development. Are you planning in an upgrade ?

I would like to know how this will be addressed prior to ordering.

Thanks

Zenmus also has tilt angle of 360 .... one way or another either the landing struts or airframe will come into view. If retract landing struts will be used; the required parts will be able to fit to current frame.

awesome , thanks. chalk me up for one then. I assume the retracts will come later ? So If we buy now we only have to upgrade to retracts when they come out ? Can you confirm it is something you will be doing ? I know it has tilt as well, but for most use Pan will be the only problem...I just need to know ( as most likely many others do too..) that if we drop the 4K on this little setup that there will be a solution the the LG issue in the pipeline relatively soon...

cheers

Does the S800+zemnuse has to use a battery this big to be a counterweight for zenmuse gimbal?

Thanks

The battery will be available in Mid April; you can certainly use two 6000 - 7000mah in parallel; both counterweight and flight time.

Hi Sidney,

Will the S800 also come in a full kit form like the F450; ie frame + ESC + motor + prop?

Thanks,
Jeffrey

But 2x6000mah 6S is 1.8kg. That is a lot of weight in the back of the S800, and there weight for the camera+gimbal. Is this right?

The VU is rated for 6S and the IMU supports hexa so it should be doable. But why would you want to put a Sport controller on a $1600 frame?

Motor and ESCs are included ...
Motor is about 90 grams, we will finalize motor kv between 380 -420 in a few days.

'cause I have one and don't need GPS. At least I don't think I need GPS. I just want to be able to do AP (stills) from a stable platform that's capable of lifting a medium-sized DSLR. Not sure the expense of a WK-M is necessary to my needs.

Opinion?

Thanks.
