That's funny. Can almost see ya doing it. I have a big outdoor movie theatre to watch it on when it warms up. This is how we watch NASCAR  night racing . When they show the incar shots , you feel like you're right there.lol screen size is 14 x 20  feet so watching your video will be cool.

Sounds like a great party night. I'd be using it for FPV flying all the time, or even the Phantom output on a screen like that would be sweet.

Not yet, I haven't seen the frame for sale anywhere yet. Motors and bits can be bought from here - http://store.dji.com/category/snail

Some of the Takyon stuff is out here - http://store.dji.com/category/takyon

I'm guessing not long before you'll be able to buy a RTF kit. But there is enough to start with on a standard frame.

Like others have mentioned, all that's available is a DIY propulsion kit. The frame in that video is 3rd pary. The smallest DJI frame you could put it on is a F330.

Hi Jamie, I have an eachine wizard x220 as a starter, but I really like the idea of the quick release props, so would I be able to just swap the motors out with the Snails? Are the motor fixings the same, will all the other bits go with the motors, will the 5048s tri-blade fit (is 50 the size, and 48 the pitch?)

The snail motors 2305 - so that's 23 wide and 05 high? bit bigger than than the 2205 on there already? I'll need to remove the little shrouds they put around the motor on the frame for sure..

Some specs on the wizard :

Wheelbase: 220mm
Compatible with max 5 inch propeller
Compatible with 2206, 2208 motor
Kingkong 5040 3-Blade Propeller
MN2205 2300KV Motor
20A BLHELI_S  ESC
F3 6DOF flight controller

Thanks

The Snail motors aren't compatible with 3rd party ESCs. You would have to switch out both, but the FC the Wizard uses should be fine. You are correct that the Snail motors are a tad bigger than what's stock on your rig, so a little tweaking would be in order.

Thanks, I'll order the complete propulsion set and some props. Time to get my soldering iron out..

I may wait a little while because I'm crashing quite a bit and I may as well kill these motors props before getting some nice ones!

hello guys I am new to dji forum and new to quadcopter in generals ( sorry if my questions are little dumb). i had a question about dji snail propulsion system which is do they work with naza m v2, i know naza would be too much for a smaller build but i really like to have dji's gps system onboard. If they do indeed work fine together can someone please explain me the gains settings for naza m v2 when paired with snail propulsion system.
PLEASE & THANK YOU
my build is
flight controller: Dji Naza M V2
motors: Dji snail propulsion
esc: Dji 430-r
battery: 2500mah 150c (more than 30amps continuous for 430-r's)
Frame: ROBOCAT 270

There isn't a set gain settings when pairing the two up. The Naza V2 manual has some gain setting recommendations for a F450, which is a bit bigger than the smallest Flamewheel airframe that can fit the Snail system, the F330. That might give you a starting point. In general, you would want to start with higher gains to where it vibrates a bit and then work your way down in value.

Hi Guys,
I have already a snail system for FPV and another one on the way.. it should reach me next week. The system is brilliant... lots of power..but i cannot make it run ok with the snail esc. Very high oscillations at lower rpm. I need to raise idle speed on airmode and the quad does not descend as fast as want to... i modified through the programer the min throttle to 1048, but I cannot make it work. Can you help ? I see a lot of youtube clips that show the system work... P.S., I'm using Kiss FC, and now for me to enjoy the snail I use cheap blheli-s esc's.... help me please unleash the snail.
Thank you,
