Looks like DJI is making it hard for people not to use their stuff. They have just announced a pre order of a GPS upgrade to the already incredible Naza controller which will make it almost as good as the Wookong. Flying Hobby is taking pre-orders hopefully we will be able to get more information as to what exactly is the difference between a $1200 Wookong M and a $500 upgraded Naza. You must already own the Naza (why wouldn’t you…lol) and preorder price is $190.

EXPECTED JUNEGPS add-on for the Naza! It now includes GPS! The features of the WK-M at a price you can afford! It’s physically smaller and lighter than the WK-M and offers Alt Holt, Return to home, GPS Hold, Intelligent Mode (Carefree), Failsafe autoland, etc. Very simple install, and the price is unbelievable. It will be direct plug in for existing users with firmware upgrade & new assistant.

I was hoping someday this would come out. Looks like it has. Photohigher has a brand new website and on that website looks like they also listed the dream all of us aerial photo jockeys wanted.
The Photo Higher Emergency Ballistic Deployment Recovery system (BDRS)
is the first commercially available emergency recovery system for unmanned aircraft.
Well, everyone I am sure has been disappointed to see that there really isn’t a commercial solution that really works well for plug in play to stabilize a camera on a camera gimbal. Sure there are a few out there…even a few that are integrated into flight systems but none of them come close to being 100% effective and/or practical. I am using a Naza separate from my Wookong-M and I am sad to say it doesn’t work that well and it doesn’t work as it should. I am working with DJI now to help them get it working as it should. In the meantime looks like Tabb was fed up and just developed his own which is something I was going to do but I have another electronics project in the pipeline that I have to finish before I can delve off into that. Here are some pretty promising looking shots from Tabb over at Freefly and I am sure you will be impressed at the raw footage right off the camera. No name, price or release date yet…hopefully I will get to help beta test this one Tabb.[ click to see videos, photos & rest of story ]
Looks like Snaproll media has released their new reel for 2012 and it looks amazing. The RC industry has now given birth to a subset called Aerial Videography using RC Helicopters instead of conventional scale ships. Its truly enlightening to see how quickly this segment is emerging. Im sure there are many new goodies to come in the remainder or 2012 and 2013.[ click to see videos, photos & rest of story ]
