Storm Drone 6 GPS with DEVO7
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I am interested in going RC with a multirotor. Mainly a hexacopter such as the Storm Drone 6 GPS with DEVO7.
It appears the site http://www.helipal.com/storm-drone-6...-platform.html has what I am looking for at a reasonable price but it appears it has to be ordered from across the water.
I like the design and it appears to be a solid easy flying craft.
My goal is to add FPV and/or aerial videography. I am hoping to get about 10 minutes of flight time before returning to base.
Whatever I go with must have autopilot for return to base or hovering.
Just want to know from the group their thoughts on a) Helipal.com and b) the Storm Drone 6 GPS with DEVO7 from Helipal.
Also, this unit seems very similar to the Flame Wheel F550. Is it the same frame?

Re: Storm Drone 6 GPS with DEVO7
Its a hexa with a Naza.
An RC Controller.
a) Its probably a Naza Lite(?) Dont compare the price of a Naza V2 or Naza V1 when comparing prices, the Naza V2 is a lot more expensive, as is the V1
b) The Hex looks pretty basic-Dont compare the price of a top end hex when comparison pricing.
c) Its probably a POS RC controller. Dont compare it to a Futaba or Spektrum RC. Its probably comparable that to a Turnigy 9x that comes in at 60 bucks. Some would argue the 9x is far Superior to the "devo7", a radio I have not heard of until today
If you get more than $650, maybe its not such a bad deal. If you currently dont own any name-brand radios, then I might encourage you to get one. If you already own a good radio, Hex +Naza lite is probably going to be less than 650 (maybe... LOL)
