The price for a new product to come is always fluctuating. Even when you pre-order, that doesn't mean you have the best price. It's an average for the seller how many he should order.

Also, the spare parts are not many in the beginning.

Other than taht, anybody knows if the DJI Phantom has the Headless direction ?

how the CX is different and / or better than the DJI or the Blade ?

Check DJI website, I think that depending on the version you get it or not, I guess FC40 does not have it, and the rest have it.

on the paper, not real difference for me, but the value of the background and the community of DJI/Blade/X350 is right now the difference, and of course the price

Thanks.

All their parts prices are reasonable. four props for $10 is nothing. I have paid $16 per prop before that broke in the first crash.

I believe that home lock equates to the headless function as long as you are far enough out when you engage it.

AFIK, The FC 40 NAZA is no different than any of the other Phantoms running NAZA M V2

Not sure, but their GPS board choice suggest Aurdino or another open source FC. It looks like Hobby King price and is likely based around uBlox NEO- 6M module.

They are still predicting restock on March 17, so it may still be a wait.

Hmmm, you know this is looking quite good now ?

Cheerson CX-20 Auto-Pathfinder Operating Instructions / Features (5 min 2 sec)


There's also mention of an "Assistant Software" to program "One Key Go Home" switch

Sounds very much like a DJI

Looks like we may now be getting reasonable tech kit but without international price fixing, we'll see, who's going to be the first tech head to delve into this one and give us a detailed "how to" and "what it does" report ?

Guys, why worry about props and prop prices they appear to be bog standard fitment props, once you've checked the prop size just order what you want from Hobbyking for pennies

The don't look like bog standard props at all. What they do look like is exact copies of DJI P1 props, as do the motors with the black and silver nuts to show CW and CCW thread direction. You could probably put 8" P1 or 9.4" P2 self tightening props on there. Looks like they got the motors from the same people that DJI did.

Yes, in hindsight I think you're correct on that, the whole thing is like a DJI but with a different plastic case
Still seems a bragian if it does what it say's on the tin

Congrats man. You're first. Where did you buy it from and how long did it take to get it.

Let us know how you like it. The packaging looks very professional, unlike most Chinese packages you get.

EZ, can you also tell us the flight time with a full battery? And how responsive is the FC to input?

Is the battery storage large enough for a larger battery than 2700?

Thanks!
