    Hi there!
    I´ve been flying a MK OKTO XL with its MK SLR 2 gimbal and 5D, lately Sony 730..
    I´m squeezing in to the industry and have been asked several times about the chance of lifting the mighty RED camera.I m very happy with MK electronics,the flight is inmaculate,rock solid, bot Im aware of the BL limitacions when it comes to big gear.My questions at this point are:
    Does Mk electronics responde the same with ESC convertors or alternative ones as POWERDRIVE etc?
    Is Wookong electronics a beter choice?how stable are they compared to MK?
    Has anybody tried coaxial hexacopter(12motors) with mk electronics, 3638mk engines?
    Here I post a litle test shot with the above setings, I would like to get similar results stab wise with Epic and CS Gimbal!
    Many thanks in advance!

    Hi Alex, here is my 12 motor cineStar with MK boards, it works great and super strong!

    Thats great, yep very similar. I think he has different motors, I thought to replace mine at some point as well..
    Also, for the props, for now, Im using the 14" top and 13" bottom, I wonna replace the motors and test 15" or 16" on top and 14" or 13" bottom...

    In any case, its supper strong! Im off to Brazil for 10 days, once im back I will do some more tests with Red / air time etc..

    cheers!
