During our recent mapping mission for S.A.F.E. project near Tawau, I brought along my DJI F550 equip with a Gopro Hero 3 black edition and Tarot T2D brushless gimbal to take a aerial video of their current site building and the propose new.
Video was taken in a sunny morning with very little winds. We are flying in GPS mode and try to be as smooth as possible, but I think we should have been more careful with rudder input. My flight controller is DJI Naja M V2, using the stock motor and 8 x 4.5 stock propeller, the default parameter recommended by DJI work well. I do not need to tune anything to get a good solid flight.
To me, my DJI F550 is just plug and play without any issue encounter. It is a good plate form to start learning and as I grow in confident I will try the Pixhalk controller. After all, it seems now the ArduCopter code is quite stable and offer a lot more function than a DJI.
I just start learning some basic video editing with Movie Maker and hope you'll enjoy it.
