CPO’s Dromida Kodo Overview with In-Camera Video Footage

From Dromida.com:

Ready to film and fly, anytime, anywhere!

You can pay two — even three — times more for a camera-equipped quad if you want to. But why would you do that when you can have the KODO for just $59.99? It’s as complete as any ready-to-fly quad out there, shoots crystal-clear photos and videos, does flips at the touch of a button and measures just 3.5 inches (90 mm) diagonally.

Futaba CGY750 Initial Setup (How, and in what order, to configure) V1.40

This video covers the initial setup of the Futaba CGY750 flybarless controller system with firmware version 1.40. This will hopefully help you navigate the step actions for a proper setup. While the manual shows you the various menu options, it fails to show you the process – what order to complete tasks. This video bridges that gap.

This video specifically covers configuration in the following menus:

S.Bus Basic
SWASHset Basic
RUD.Gyro Basic
