So i decided to try the whole Dji thing. It took all of about 20mins to swop the APM2 with the Naza.
The setup is as simple as it gets. That took no more than 10 mins.
After installing the hardware and software I took it outside and attempted the first flight.
All I have to say is wow! A truly awesome piece of engineering! Dont get me wrong, I love my ardupilot!
But the Naza is just amazing! Im not a very experienced pilot so im still a little wobbly flying the APM2.
The real reason behind buying the Naza, is for videography. I cant fly the APM2 stable enough for videography, obviously its perfectly suited for that, Im just not experience enough to fly it well enough. Duran DeV flies all his copters on APM and his videos are mind blowing. So its not the FC, its the pilot!
For a not so fresh noob, the Naza makes the whole experience a dream. I did a direct swop out of the FC on the standard jDrones Arducopter and it worked like a charm, no tuning or anything.
I only flew it in atti mode. Which I think is awesome for videography, the alt hold is accurate to within a few centimeters.
And when I put my gopro on it, which threw out the COG, the flight dynamics remained exactly the same!
I hope the Ardu boys dont get upset with me for posting this, but one has to have an open mind to all new tech :)
P.S. I bought a ST Discovery high wing foamy trainer for my APM2 for photogrammetry, so Ill post some vids and or crashes of that soon!
