After viewing about 200 videos and surfing every website and forum I can find, I'm hooked. I have flown RC planes but the quadcopter etc is the berries. I had looked primarily at DJI stuff and stumbled onto the Ardu/3DR stuff. I have sent the following email to 3DR but thought it worthwhile to pop it up here for the expertise this group holds.
I am interested in either the quad or the X8 and for either, have the following questions:
- I want to use my existing GoPro Hero2 camera with your 5.8Ghz FPV system. Can [they] delete the Sony and furnish the cabling for the Hero2?
- The camera mount [they] show as an option has little description. Can [anyone] tell me what it is and if the Hero2 will fit it?
- Can [they] substitute a charger that will charge multiple batteries simultaneously? [or do any of you have a specific battery/charger setup you recommend]
- Does [their] DX8 option include the receiver and telemetry or not? The page is ambiguous. I am new to this but a lot of discussion on the 'net says the 3-position switches, more programability and other features are nice. [what is the group consensus?]
