We thought it was about time too take a look at the GCS & Way Point features of the DJI Wookong WKM, the videos posted before have shown just how well the WKM works when used on custom built frames, DJI's own Flame Wheel Frames and now in this video we have stepped it up a little, the WKM has been added to a Droidworx HexaCopter fitted with the AV200 camera mount. This HexaCopter was built for a customer to carry out aerial survey work, it has been fitted with Axi motors with Hercules Power Boards and the full waypoint option on the DJI WKM flight controller.
As always when it comes to testing we make sure that the conditions are always a challenge, this flight was no different, as you can see from the windsock (which if you watched the last video, the windsock is not destroyed ...) there is a good "breeze" at the flight field!
The flight was only a very short test to show what the GCS & Way Points could do and what the live telemetry information looks like while the copter was going about its flight plan, once again the WKM delivered without fault and in a very positive and confidence inspiring way. When setting the way points for the flight, care was taken to make sure that the HexaCopter would have to fly across the wind in both directions to see if this caused any issues, and unsurprisingly there were no issues the HexaCopter just carried on as if there were no wind at all!
Once again another outstanding flight from the Wookong WKM and the additional confidence added with GCS & Way Point makes this system a real winner if you are looking to use the system as a serious tool, or just for fun if your budget allows.
