A mix of multicopter and fixed wing aircraft flown FPV-
Here's a couple of videos:…Continue
I previously posted a BLOG about setting up the FJI F450 Flamewheel with the APM2 and the copter was a great success so I thought I'd put together a smaller and lighter version - The F330 Flamewheel.
My F500 weighs 2 pound 11 ounces ready to fly and I am shooting for 1 pound 11 ounces with…Continue
Hi, I previously set up a KKX525 with the APM2, but when one of my ESC's started fading, I thought I'd try something a little more upscale.
I have now put together a DJI 450F Flamewheel ARF including DJI motors, Opto ESCs and props from "RC-Drones" at a reasonable $180.00 and am quite…Continue
We decided that it was time to test out the stability of the DJI Wookong M electronics on the CineStar 8 from FreeFly Systems.
So we flew a small girl around the park without making any gain adjustments in the DJI assistant.
Yesterday a few of the UK Ardupilot group (Malcolm, Dean & I) arrived at a flight field ready to take a look at and test the DJI Innovations WKH on a traditional Heli, this was installed on a Spectra petrol Heli, it was sent out to hold its position in GPS ATTI mode, we filmed the Spectra to show how it got on! Dean had his OctoCopter there so we…Continue
Today I had notification that there will be some new features coming in a firmware update for the DJI Wookong WKM, the latest V5.10 will be out in the…Continue

Early customers are starting to receive their Naza GPS Units, and while I await mine, the early feedback appears positive.
DJI customers in the southern hemisphere will be pleased to hear there are as of yet no reported issues regarding GPS lock. The GPS Upgrade, which brings Position Hold, Return to Home and Simple mode (often known as Carefree mode) appears to be around the $190 tag for existing…Continue
Yesterday was "let's be unfair to the DJI Wookong WKM day!" here at Build Your Own Drone, I've had a growing number of people asking just how good the WKM Flight Controller from DJI Wookong is, & how much setting up is needed to…Continue
We set out to see how well the DJI Wookong WK-M would hold up in the windy conditions today, the wind at ground level was…Continue
The DJI WK-M Multi-Rotor controller has had a firmware update over the weekend, the guys at Wookong headquarters added the “Care Free” mode in this latest update…Continue
Just further pushing what DJI wookong M can do
What I did is removed one motor from standard Jdrones motor with Gaui 500X GM412 and used 11 X 5 Graupner prop. Rest of the threee motors are standard jdrones motors with 10" props.
The only difference was controls became more sensititve. Maybe a PID setting would have helped more. This video was made when the DJI was in Manual…Continue
The DJI Wookong multi rotor M was put through a set of tests this afternoon, the first was normal flight, we then moved to position hold and changed the altitude, the DJI proved to be extremely stable in flight and held a very solid position in the…Continue
