I've noticed plenty of people talking about using silicon on their arm reinforcements. What type of silicon are you using?

Is the legs in the retracts the same specs as the original s800 kit?

Does anyone have a link to the video, made with a prototype of a Z15, that is made to be used with a DSLR???
I tried searching for it, but cannot find it. I believe it was done at some Formula One Racing?!

thanks,

That's right it is top quality judging by the price

PS. I use Dennys prop adapters and i can tell you it works much better than stock props. So they are very good for what they are supposed to do...
what props do you use?

Just to clarify.

The DJI retracts are only supplied WITH servos (from DJI) fitted. The servos are pre-programmed for end point adjustment, you can not do this from the TX. There is a clever control PCB included which cuts servo power 3 secs after reaching the end point. It tests for over current, if so the legs lower, if you switch the system on with the TX switch in the retract position..the legs will NOT retract until you toggle the switch again...cool protection at switch on

They come with the battery tray.

DJI will send clarification to the dealers today, I think there was some confusíon

Oh come on. You don't use the adaptors because you know that there could be issues with warranty if anything happens to your s800


Take a chill pill moron.


I couldn't give a shite how many flights you have had and I have even less interest on what you earn, you peasant.


I totally agree maggot breath.
Please take all the bickering elsewhere, it has no place here.

Thanks.

I really hope you are right, but from what I read:
"Servos are not included. Please select the servo option below to add a pair of High voltage/torque servos to your order"

Servos are included and are pre-programmed by DJI.

You need to check the pricing with the dealer!!

Clear or black Shoe Goo is quite a good adhesive for bonding carbon section material to your arms.

Question.
I have been getting yellow flashes during rapid assent and some manouvers, it flashes for a few times and seems to go away in a hover. I still seem to have an occasional green flash (it 's possible I am mistaking it for yellow). I ahve checked all connections.

Any ideas what is causing this I have ver 1 of the s800, is it possible it's the power distribution board?

thanks

I think what you are getting are white flashes. I get them with rapid movement of the S800. The single green flash means that all sticks with the exception of the throttle are centered.
