Tarot ZYX-M Flight Controller

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Earlier this month, Tarot released their new flight controller. http://www.tarot-rc.com/index.php?ma...oducts_id=1350
For around, now get this...$125 USD!!

I'm beside myself, in September 2014 I bought a DJI WooKong for around $1,100 and according to some rumblings out there on the web, this controller is "Able" do every thing the DJI's high end hardware can do, like the WooKong and the A2, for a 10th of the cost?

Tarot is still updating the firmware as we speak, not all of the functions are available, Bluetooth is slated for June 2015. There are some videos out there, and of course the multirotors seem to fly well.

So should I buy one? I mean $125!

Lets see what I have spent on controllers already...
DJI F450, NAZA V1 no GPS $300
DJI F500 NAZA V1 w/GPS updated to V2 firmware $450
Tarot T18 Octobeast, DJI WooKong w/Bluetooth and Mini OSD $1200 (I wanted the DJI A2 but couldn't spend that much)

I was going to buy a GPS antenna for the F450, but it doesn't make any sense spending $75 on the antenna when I can get the whole Tarot system for $125!!!

I'm willing to sacrifice my F450 for the good of mankind, and test the Tarot ZYX-M Flight Controller on it, I think my F450 would be a good test platform because its fast and twitchy and hard to control in the wind.

So....Who wants to donate the $125....?
My Aircraft doesn't have wings, sometimes powerless landings involve a free fall at terminal velocity, I use a broom and dustpan to take it home

Re: Tarot ZYX-M Flight Controller

Looks like a bunch of Naza look alikes are popping up now: http://www.rctimer.com/product-1246.html

How well they fly you'll need to do research. Hopefully it's better than the GPS on the Naza, because that thing is horrible with interference due to the lack of a saw filter.

The Wookong was always overpriced (then again, so was DJI FC hardware in general).

The DJI GPS was reversed engineered recently, and a ton are available now from China that are comparable for less price. You're probably better just adding one of those.
