    Apm is the wrong way
    This controller is crap. Better to get a naza + gps.
    You can get it for 280$ now

    Do I have to buy another TX? I've got 7 nine channel, 2 x 7, 4 x 4 and 7 x 3 channel radios now.

    I know, I could ask the kid next door to fly my quad for me then I wouldn't know where it's going, even more fun. :-)
    It's awesome when folks try to disguise rudeness with humor....

    Many are interested in automation and other aspects of the hobby and this is a selling point, whether you like that aspect or not.

    Anyone with Internet access can figure out the APM is a flight controller that can do regular rc flight modes as well as automated.

    Automation can be fun, we all don't live within your paradigm.

    If the APM is tuned for the model it should be the better solution. But there is no word on this on the HP. If the APM comes out with firmware default settings, maybe the Naza could be the better solution for an RTF model. I am using the APM, and it lasts some time, to get it tuned correct.

    If your looking for RTF with a NAZA-M go to Ready To Fly Quads. I think its nice to see some other RTF options.

    Why do people so love to hate on the Naza though?

    apm is the choice for me and i have been looking for a rtf quad. i have very little time to buid. i have used apm in my planes and its worked well for me. i am just starting fpv and i like the option 2 for this rtf quad. i have dominator glasses, but im confsed as to why i would also need a ground station. ready to buy here, just need some clarification. 600mw tx should provide some good distance rite to my dominators correct? im usinf the ibcrazy bluebeams too.

    Maybe I need to make the product description more clear. Because it is a RTF we have the APM installed and tuned perfectly for this particular machine. The Naza is a great solution for someone that wants to install something that is super easy, but limited in what it can do.

    We are going with a different approach and targeting people that may want to start with something rreally basic like a Naza and then step out of the box and bit as they feel more comfortable.

    With this product its your choice, stay simple or push the envelope.
