I got my DJI S800 flying with all most no vibs after several months and installing carbon fiber sleeves, balancing the motors, along with balancing the props, then checking the balance with the props installed on the motors. The DJI WK-M with the latest update I think it's go to go.
I was looking for another S800 when I came across a S800 clone. So I ordered it and it came in today. The metal case looks just like the one I have and the S800 clone looks 99% like my DJI S800. The clone was $1000 with case plus shipping. If you do a search on Google for S800 clone UAVOBJECTS.COM will come up --ask for Kendall he is very helpful. I don't know how long the sale will last and I have not put it together yet. But at first glance it's a xerox copy. at half the price. The motors are 350KV and the ESC looks the same . But I think they may be different from what I just read on the net..The other difference it has three green LED lights and three red LEDS. Anyhow when I get it in the air I will post the results. With savings I will go with the DJI landing retracts I was going with the Seacraft but at $630 I will opp the extra cost for the DJI retracts

I get my oders at about 5 days and I don't have to pay any brokerage fees or duties. Anything I get from USA I have to pay customs fees.

I also got my S-800 retracts replaced for free.

Talk to Sang ,excellent service..

The Customer always gets the benifit of doubt and what do you have to loose...? They have been around for years (just check the competitive circles) and they stand, totally behind what they sell. Yes, it usually takes seven business days to receive your order (based on the US) and their products are well proven in the RC World. As far as reccomendations, I can reccomend them highly......!
I just ordered a set. Do you normally get an email confirmation when you order from them? I haven't yet.

Remember that Korea is fourteen hours different (East Coast of USA) so be patient. Yes, sometimes Secraft emails end up in the Spam Folder. They use a Translator for English and other languages, so sometimes......the messages may not make sense. If you keep the correspondence simple, there is no problem.

Sang is great to deal with and their Customers truly do come first. ALL of their products are excellent quality and are priced accordingly.

Thanks guys. I wasn't really worried about Secraft as a company as much as I was wondering if my order went through correctly. I chose pay by credit card and then canceled it and changed it to PayPal. The checkout is kinda different on their website so I wasn't sure it wen through okay. I sent them an email and they replied within a few minutes that my order was perfect and would ship tomorrow.

I wonder how hard it would be and how cool it would look to add the secraft arm plates over arms that had already been sleeved in CF.

For people that are using the GH2 under their Zenmuse, what lens do you recommend?
The Lumix G14 F1.7 or the Lumix G20 F2.5? (And why?)

POI problem with WKN

Maybe I just can't interpret the manual. But I can't seem to get POI working on my WKM, latest FW installed 2 days ago.

I set it to control 2.

Assigned a 3 position switch, and it shows correctly in the Assistant SW when switching modes.

However when flying the course lock works fine. But I was unable to program the point yesterday in my testing. I had more than 6 GPS sats and I ws in GPS mode. I flicked from course lock to POI 3-5 times as I understand the manual to instruct. Then I backed away but the S800 would not circle the POI pointing in at it. I did get the rapid green light when I programmed the point. I tried switching to course lock and back to POI, but it still did not work.

I tried several different points at varying distances from my "take off home spot". Up to 100' away.

I must be doing something wrong, any suggestion or improvements on the manuals instructions would be greatly appreciated. I am sure I am doing something incorrectly.

I do know you have to use roll (ailerons) to move in a circle. And elevator to move away or closer.
