    WooKong

    I'm thinking about setting up a Wookong in an xaircraft 650. Has anyone set one up yet and is it fairly straightforward, or anything to watch out for? We'll be using it for aerial video at work.

    Here are a couple of samples of the wookong in action - absolutely stunning video:





    Also, check out this indoor video where they run it through some pretty tuff stuff:

    After debating over getting one for a few weeks I finally broke down and ordered a wookong from Heliproz.com. Hope it lives up to the hype. I have looked at several that were equipped with GPS and this is the only one that seems to work consistently.

    Some fly for attitude, others for altitude

    I have one on my Hexa. Worth every penny.

    As for what to look out for. The driver for the unit is a .rar file, so you will need a zip program to download it that can handle .rar. I used 7-Zip which is free. This trips more people up than you can imagine. Everything else is pretty well straight forward.

    Yeah, I've heard about the .rar file. If that is the biggest problem then I can handle it.

    It's going on my little F450 for now. Hopefully I can upgrade to a bigger hexa or octo later on.
