    Hi

    How is DJI WKM working with the large XOAR props. I have heard that WKM doesn't like big props...

    Hey Johan,

    We have not had any problems with large Props on a WKM.

    Infact we quite like the large props...we get good 20mins plus without load, 16mins carrying a 5D with 16-35 F2.8L lens and almost 10mins carrying an Epic with a 24 F1.4L

    I think it could be the firmware, i know previously the WKMs didnt quite like large props.

    We are on firmware 5.06 now. 5.08 gave us problems so we rolled back.

    Hey Kronja,

    We run 5S packs on our CS8.

    I am using Castle 50A ESCs with the new multi rotor firmware.

    Ziv! CS12??? That thing is nuts! What are your flight times on that? What will it lift? Any other detailed pictures? Very cool!

    Thanks Josh ;)
    here is a quick first test i did, Im still working on getting best results, i also replaced the lower props for smaller ones / higher pitch cos of the dead air from the top props... the flight time should give with 2 5s and NEX7 ~35 minutes (i'd be happy with good 25..) and RED for ~8-10 minutes... the nice thing about it, it will be less stress on the BLs, so safer with heavier payload on a hot day... Im still testing the best mixer setup.. once its ready, ill put the 360 gimbal with the new CS stab boards (next week finally!!) will keep u posted!!

    Cheers,
    Ziv.

    Outstanding. But you should test outside. The prop wash moved your Toyota truck. Great idea for cleaning out the garage. :)
