+1 on the Taranis. I don't think it can be beat for the functionality and cost. I'm still sitting on a Taranis Plus, haven't even messed with it yet, because my older version (with the last firmware) works great.
UniSens-EWhich telemetry unit do you use @fltundra?
I temporarily switched to a WKM for a heavy lift x8 and hated it. Way less stable than the SuperX. It's amazing that nothing as stable or smooth has come out for x8 copters. It looks like the A3 has the same problems as the A2 for initial x8 users. Hopefully they'll release a firmware update to address the issues, but that doesn't seem likely coming from DJI.
I'm flying the SuperX on my main copter. It's a Falcon Drones frame, Vulcan UAV arms, KDE 4014's and 55A ESCs. I typically fly with a Movi M5 and a GH4. I also have a larger Phobotic gimbal to lift Reds and Arris.
That's interesting! I might have to give the Naza a try. Better than the SuperX? Just the most recent firmware? Any custom mixing? (Not sure if that's even an option with Naza)
The SuperX is still smoother (especially in wind) but I don;t trust them now. The fact that 3 failed all in the same month and I had bought them and installed them (about 3 years ago) makes me think the chips have an expiration date. Nothing worse than going to fly a rig that has been rock solid and you lift off and it just spins, and I mean fast!
Same rig with the Naza 2 put on took off (with stock S900 settings even though it's an X8) and was smooth as glass.
The Naza 2 still has a little "fight" in high wind, but the ability to move forward and not lose altitude seems to make up for it.
And since X Aircraft seems like they are Dead here in the US, I can't get service for my SuperX's.. so the Naza 2 is a decent option for now.
I'm waiting on the XNAV from Ziv... that should be a game changer (expensive) but a game changer. triple redundancy, autonomous flight INDOORS... weather resistant... it's the real deal.
Thanks for getting back to me that's heavy enough for me!, so are you flying RED, 5D3, GH4, A7sii and the like? Are you still on Gremsy also? Might have to give it a whirl. I am after the CANlink data for gremsy, I had just written off NAZA as being for light weight copters.The Hex is 9Kg, the X8 is 10-12Kg. The guys I know flying LARGE X8's on it are in the 43kg range on a Naza 2. (They are not in the US so weight is not an issue)
I WAS a HUGE SuperX proponent. Loved them.. still love how they fly, but I take care of my stuff and the fact that 3 out of 6 are dead after 3 years for no reason, and a few buds like Steve from Aerial Mob had the same problems has turned me off.. Really bummed.
I still like the A2 as well, but for a cheap system. the Naza V2 seems to be OK now.
