Pros
– Cleanflight configurable Naze32 FC board. But actually a nice flier with out of the box PIDs.
– Small but still big enough to carry a Runcam or Mobius (but not GoPro style).
– Barometer for altitude calculation and altitude hold if desired.
– GPS for calculation of flight parameters such as range, speed, home pointer, or even position hold if desired.
– FPV with on screen display (OSD) of important flight parameters including GPS satellite status, Lat/Long, compass heading, altitude, flight time, range, remaining battery power, speed, flight mode, pitch and roll.

Cons
– Requires some minor configuration out of the box. I needed to update mapping of the switches for the flight controller, along with failsafe settings. Also updated Cleanflight Aux switch settings.
– Stock propellers do not fit the quadcopter well. They will fit, but requires some “leverage” to twist them on. Buy some spare Gemfan 4045BN propellers to make your life easier. I also heard rumors that Banggood may be shipping extra Gemfan 4045BN to thos who purchase this quadcopter πŸ˜‰ Seems to fly much better with the Gemfans also (the green ones in the video).
– Prop clearance between prop tips and the battery and battery cables is very small. Be careful to make sure that they’re not being obstructed.
– FPV camera seems a bit “jiggly” in its mount. Causes wobbly image.
– Flying with a camera can interfere with the GPS system.
– Requires FAA registration.

Feature:
1.The newest Naze32 Rev6 Full verssion Flight controller High stability flying.
2.Real-time image transmission, Built-in OSD(the flight voltage of battery,flgiht time, flight speed, Coordinates, direction).
3.120 degree CMOS HD FPV camera PAL/NTSC to choose and 0Β°-30Β°Camera angle switchable.
4.Built in Cleanflight Black box, it can now log your flight data with BlackBox feature. This is a great tool for diagnosing problems.
It’s also great for tuning PID and other flight performance settings.
