Jeff P replied to Thomas's discussion Why NAZA work without PIDS tuning and APM not? in ArduCopter User Group

And PIXHAWK $200USD, DJI. $1100 plus

Jeff P replied to Randy's discussion ArduCopter-3.1 released!
"Just curious
I looked at your header on the upload
Flight time 6 minutes, at 1300 meters
Is your quad in visual sigt at 1300meters?
I have flown over water at 1000 Meters but at 38 minutes time
What is your clime rate in m/s"

Jeff P replied to George's discussion where was it going? in ArduCopter User Group
"The second your quad started to appear to be flying off you had plenty of time to switch to MANUAL mode, fly back and land safely
Learn how to fly before using any auto command
Best of luck"
