I've already had one flyaway with my Phantom, which luckily only resulted in a broken prop and cracked case, but I'm now concerned about the reliability of the Naza M.
I have a Naza M V1 in my F550 and I'm seriously considering changing to APM 2.6 after several people on this forum have reported F550 crashes recently that aren't attributed to pilot error.
The Phantom is a toy and I can afford to lose it but the F550 represents a significant investment in time and money. My confidence in the Naza has been knocked.
I accept that crashes happen. I spent years flying TREX450s so I appreciate that the second I raise the throttle from the stop, it could be the last time I see my bird in one piece, but all of my crashes in helis can be attributed to pilot error. With the Naza's reported flyaways (and the one I had with my Phantom) there seems to be nothing one can do to stop it once it starts.
I've google "APM flyaway" but I get very few results, the majority of which are the multi doing something weird when flying to a waypoint.
Google "Naza flyaway" and you get hundreds of results.
Has anyone made the switch to the APM? Regret it? Like it?
