Will it be better than my F330 with its Mobius..??

 Here's how to do the same thing for a tiny fraction of the cost....:.....DJI....Late to the Party.....lol.



Diatone 500 with cheap, modified 3 Axis Gimbal....

Not really, look at the size of the spark, and the fold down size of it, that's the selling point of it. It's not claiming to do what others cant, its doing it in a pocket size package.

I've had a Spark for a few months, nice little toy.  it sees service for me when I need to do inspections in areas where I can't risk something bigger and heavier flying.  The camera is not bad (although severely lacking in the ability to shoot RAW images).  Flight duration is a little short for my liking too.

Now, the new Mavic Air, now that is a cracking little tool.  Does everything the Spark can, and more, packs up smaller, flies for longer and has a much better cam.  It's not cheap, but I'll be selling my Spark now the Air has been proven (for me).

The 330 frames do fly nice and smooth, more inertia to help reduce the impact of high frequency vibes.

Outrunner style motors tend to work best on medium to high timing, in terms of power/efficiency.  I wouldn't mind betting that a large portion of your issue might be down to the "cheap" motors, not so much the actual props/timing/battery setup...

I've been a pfCO holder for a few years now, and do a day or two a week on average commercial stuff.  Ranging from estate agent jobs, to mapping/survey and the odd bit of video work thrown in too.  I've done the EuroUSC theory course a fewe years ago, and realised it wasn;'t a requirement, and I could apply direct to the CAA.  I wrote my own Ops manual, without the aid of any NQE/EuorUSC, so I've got a good working knowledge of the ANO. 

The definition I've had from the CAA as to whether a PfCO is required or not, is whether the purpose of the flight was for "valuable consideration".  That could be money received by a client, a crate of beer from a mate, advertising revenue on Youtube etc etc.  However, and this is the key point, the valuable consideration only applies if that was the purpose of the flight.  If I were to do a flight for fun, get some stills/video for my own enjoyment, then the purpose of that flight is NOT valuable consideration.

Now, if a few months later, I decide to put a video up on Youtube, and earn a few quid of the advertising, and maybe sell an image or two off the back of it, that still doesn't mean the purpose of the flight was for valuable consideration.  It was still for my own enjoyment.

As such, I can;t see a a problem with it.  However, if people are going out with the sole aim of recording a video to put on YouTube and generate loads of ad revenue, then I'd argue that the purpose of those flights, were for valuable consideration.

As you can see, the definition is clear.  The interpretation of it, less so. 

My take on it all, is that I'm happy for people to make their own mind up.  Personally, I feel it necessary to have the PfCO to do what I do.  I'm not going to waste time and energy moaning about other people doing stuff that I consider to be the wrong interpretation of the rules.

Iíve just been reading Konstantins comments and recommendations for iNav Flying Wing and he says that the Barometer on the board should always be switched on so the software uses board and gps for altitude control.

 Hi BigT,
              Oh, Im glad you have found the same as me then...I was trying to set up my new Z84 too and the servos were kind of funny...although I didn't play with it very long.
  I only have one board with a Baro and its in a multi an F3 board in fact.

  They have made huge changes, too many at once it sounds like...?

 For the time being, Im running 1.8 Configurator and the stable Firmware from June 2017...I know it works fine....:)

                                                                                               :vulture:

Sorry to go a bit off topic but if the gov bring in the over 250gms registration system light weight 4" quads will be possible but I very much doubt 5" will be possible. So there may be alternative reasons to go smaller!
Not if but WHEN, my fleet of ZMR 250ís will all need government issued fireproof labels screwed on to the frame.
