DJI Phantom, Turbo Ace X830 or Gaui 500 quadrocopter review
Bjørn Danielsen: Do you have cam on flight control on x-830 ?
Young J. Choi: BTW, How do you rate about ARdrone? Thanks for the demos.
Eric White: I'm looking for a quad that will give me a range of 1km to 2km, fpv, gps,
camera mount/gimbal and at least 20 plus minutes of flight time any
Christopher Hemmerling: You forgot to mention that the Phantom has self-locking nuts for it's
blades. Though the X830 does have keyed motors, and one would think that is
best, I'm sure there's a mod out there to fix that :-) They also have about
the same wobble that you mentioned on the DJI copter. Just sayin.
Jack Heart: enjoyed the demo ,
this is the first I have heard of the Ace X830 , better late than never ,
is it just me or does it seem many demos are shot at sunset ,
does this activity attract vampires ?
just asking , , ,
TheCamaro5: the best median between all is the tbs discovery.
Brian Michael: there is also a price difference of $3000
for under $500 you can get the dji phantom and learn on it.. so.. sure you
can upgrade on the X830.. but at that price.. might as well save a lil more
and buy a 6 rotor copter..
banacek1970: I'll tell you something my friend, you are an excellent presenter ; you
should think of that as a career.....really well done mate.
Encoded Muskie: this was well shot...
RaDDx1968: When you make review comparisons between products, you compare within the
same price range, if one is 5 times more costly than the other, well, of
course it will be better and have more features. And always being concerned
about being able to go bigger and better is not always necessary. If you
have a product that performs well and does what you want, why the need to
get better all the time. Marketing gimmicks....
Mark Honda: Great video, but you forgot to mention the x830 is over $1000. More than
twice the price of phantom
Chris Baldwin: I hate to be a party crasher BUT I think people should spend more time
researching safety and the rules of aerial photography and videography than
worrying about how much weight their copter can fly. I'm in the industry .
. . I own two copters and was one of the early adapters to UAV/UAS
platforms. While flying is great fun it is still illegal to charge money or
profit from using a copter. Why doesn't anyone ever post about insurance
or regulations? Looking forward to hearing from you.
metatron2332: I´m flying the phantom with the sony gw55 camcorder and mount it with four
jello free hair rubbers from my gf :-) under the landing gear. Payload of
camera and mount is about 260g so thats much more as a gopro and I got no
problem with the weight. Flight time is about 7min so thats not much but it
is very stable.
Thema inproblem: That was an excellent review. Would you recommend the Naza navigation
system for the Dji flamewheel 550? Thanks for the upload.
zimmy1958: nice comparison thanks Tony
masterpatricZeta3: do they have propellers not made by cheap plastic?like aluminum i do not
know, that is my main concern.
Scott Elder: Wow! Nice comparison/review. Thanks for the vid.
sundance2005: How does the Walkera QR X350 compare to the dji Phantom?
Gabe Cohen: will the x-830 carry a dslr?
Jon Lin: I don't think so. There are 3 different camera mounts meant for smaller
cameras like the GoPro, 5N, etc. However, their CineWings are guaranteed to
be capable of lifting a dslr, if not, a Red Epic! It should show the
varying options on the Turbo Ace website.
Jānis Andersons: Yes.
zemekiel: There's a "small" issue of price between the Turbo ACE X830 and the DJI
Freddy Palma: Tony now works for wow hobbies
John Gaarsoe: moviematcanada, I specifically chose the Ace X830, because it is more like
a traditional RC aircraft where you choose your radio equipment whereas the
DJI Phantom is preconfigured with it's own radio, and one that is fairly
short range at that. With the Ace X830, your range is only limited by the
radio you choose: A standard 2.4 Ghz spread spectrum radio would give you a
range of about a mile. The long-range UHF radio I have installed in mine
ostensibly has a range of 14 miles!
Mike R: Like comparing a Ferrari to a Festiva. next time, be more fair. I have the
X650 and it is awesome. the 12" props launches this beast in the air. With
FPV, jello bumps, andGPS/NAZA, I can go anywhere with confidence.
masterpatricZeta3: what about the 350qx?
Scooty9794: get yourself some Carbon Fiber Props. Nylon props are not made for arial
videography or heavy lifting. They tend do bend and even break in flight if
they need to lift more than the actual weight of the copter itself. Carbon
Props dont bend and are more efficient and also deliver more perfomance.
Viktor M: Cool! :))
Arnold Harns: The X830 is almost 5 times the price of the DJI.... I enjoyed your vid but
do not compare these two quads...
Plan C: Du Bro prop balancer. Turn the cone around for the side matching the top of
the rotor and then use the other cone normally. If you push it in with a
bit of force and wiggle it it will work. Then eyeball it just to be sure.
Novrizal Herdananto: wow, tony from nitroplanes..
sundance2005: How do you dynamically balance the dji Phantom motors?
sbcfilm: aluminum propellers are my main concern!!!!!!!!!!! goodbye fingers
G4 Gaming: the x830 has a $400 controller
multiplicity: The DJI has auto pilot and return to home and instant land when battery is
low and costs just under $500.00 at this writing. Does any of the Turbo Ace
line that costs upwards of $2500.00 have these features?
Steven Thomas: What is the voltage and kv rating on the X830? What size props?
FAIRDINKIUM: I got to be honest here - For me, I'd ONLY be interested in FPV - forget
the go pro.Now, that being said, since the load-out would be less - I'm
looking at a pretty good flight time. But did you see the X-830 ROCK like a
BITCH when he landed it? ( and it was a gentle landing too! ) they need to
redesign the landing gear - its too high! AND to keep weight down, they put
cross braces on it? why?...the gear MUST be too flimsy to support it on its
own. This thing with Bumble Bee landing gear? YES!.
alex gabelli: can i put a t4i on a quai 500x? or a turbo ace 830? if so how steady wil it
be for film production? please some help
12golgaa: I´m interested on these Motors. The Phantom isn´t that bad. With a
Zenmuse/Arris CM2000 or Tarot Gimbal, it´s possible to get really
outstanding footage. By myself I´m flying the DJI F550 with a retractable
landing gear/Naza-M V2/Zenmuse H3 2D with Hero 3BE on it/400mW 5.8GHZ Video
Tx and 4S batteries. The frame is a bit heavy, but with a total wight of
2.1Kg it has 15 Minutes of flight time :) I´m now waiting for SimonK
ESC´s/DJI iOSD Mini ;)
zero00tolerance: The DJI F550 is designed for the Naza they are both from DJI company, but
be warned the frame is very heavy.
Louis G Kousoulos: Great Info! Thanks!
Felix Mizioznikov: wait not fair comparison. The 830 has vibration isolators while the dji
does not. I'd like ot see the test with the dji with at least a vibration
Ronnie DJ: Excellent review, my friend.
masterpatricZeta3: and what about The FPV quad sport?
Pat Jack: Very nice presentation, excellent and informative, comparative analysis and
narration was efficient and fair. Subscribed.
death_by_midget: Do you need to buy an external Remote control to use the X-830 or does it
come with one? thanks
Aeoz MS: How can I make my phantom have a MUCH longer range? Since it only reaches
out to about 300-300 meters.
Lester Bullard: all of the video looks choppy to me , maybe this was caused by the
conversion to youtube format ,I have seen better results with the 100
dollar mobius 1080p mini camera and that was also converted to youtube
format also. go pro 3 is going to get left behind if they keep selling
cameras with a 25-35% failure rate.just saying
Haidar Jan: why bigger cameras?? the best one for adventure shotage is the GOPRO, the
phantom carries gopro+ FPV+ extra battries+ gimbal and still flies
beautifully, wait for my first film from Holland
