Don't quite understand your question.
S800 is with ESC under the motor; even using same kv, different motors do not mean they perform the same. If you are thinking using similar motor and prop to achieve the same performance, I'd say unlikely.

The S800 ARF kit will come with Motors, Esc's and Props. No Lipo. The preorder is a very good deal. It will come with stock landing gear that you see.

Expect pictures later this week of everything.

The pre order is thru DJI direct and very very few Dist. I will be carrying the S800 and Zenmuse preorder option. The ONLY reason for me doing this is provide customer service to my current and USA customer base. This I felt was important and the reason why I requested and was granted to so. Trust me, not for greed in any way at all.

Back to regular schedule programming.

Are these esc's running standard firmware? and I don't mean are they programmed already for multi rotors.. I mean is there not smoothing and throttle ramping etc that causes reduced performance compared to mikrokopter and simonk firmare flased esc's?

and how about some more specs? frame weight? etc.

I'm not sure if I got it right but it seems there will be two 800 models been one the S800 and the other the SW800, is that correct? If yes, what are the diferences between them?

And what transmitter systems that have S-Bus are tested and recommended by DJI to use with Wookong-M in the S or SW800?

A 1.2 Kg load for 20 min for $1600, is a bit much.

FWIW, Laz

Well I haven't seen anything yet from the s800 other than renders, were can you see its printed carbon ? I really doubt that CFs would be announced and than its some fake, lets keep it on the realistic side.

Since the gimbal plus cam is certainly over 1 kg probably more around 1.5 kg and a lipo lets take an average weight 650 grams we are talking about 2 kg plus payload, their calculations seems wierd.

Considering that everything is of good quality which no one knows yet, but lets say it is. 1600 $ for a HEXA frame motors ESCs and props it not a bad deal. The only question is performance and quality of the S800, lets see.

i Believe that DJI is going towards the Pro market with the Zenmuse and the S800.
wich is a good thing to do.
we had a meeting with all of them incl the CEO in germany and had a 2 day meeting incl dinner.
discussing about future things with DJI.
i was really amazed by the professionalism ,that they had.
and they are for sure heading towards the pro market with their new products.
the Wookong M , ace one , s800 and the new Zenmuse are a few examples.
so as we spoke about the quality of the S800,they wont release anything before it works,
and does what they say it does.
so i am looking forward receiving the new items.
