XP3.1 Waypoint
Anybody has more details on the new DJI system?
i got this replay from them on a mail.

The first version of XP3.1 Waypoint has been released, and a second is coming up early March with superior functions. The standard quotation for WayPoint is 9500 USD + Shipping fee per set.

People planning to use this in the USA or Europe should check what the regulations (or future regulations) have to say about it.

It looks like it is going to be illegal to fly like this (except in special controlled areas).

rerazor: As the USA distributor, what's your advice to potential customers ?.

That's funny.

Maybe it should be "Buy now, pay later"

Check with FAA is always recommended.

I think you should be the one doing some checking.

There is a BIG difference between a pilot with an RC transmitter using an autopilot for assistance and a heli flying itself while someone watches the progress on a laptop.

The UK has regulation now - and it's not a grey area at all. Unless you have an approved 'sense-and-avoid' system, you can't do it.

Maybe the FAA will be more relaxed about it when the rules finally arrive - but judging by the current situation, I doubt it.

In my opinion it's not the vendors responsibility to check the correct and legal usage of the products he sells.
Does Porsche tell their customers not to speed on public roads?
It's always up to the end-user to check if it is legal or not.

Rerazor: that's great to know you changed your mind (and your post).

As you will be testing Way Point flight from a laptop soon, will you be good enough to share the FAA response with us ?.

I'm sure many people will be anxious to see it.

wiesenflieger:

It's a different case if a supplier is condoning illegal use of a product in order to make a sale.

I find it ironic that this product is allowed to be used in once draconic China, whereas you guys in the "free world" are constrained by so many 'regulations', which I might add, is not even clearly enforced yet.

As for the UK regulation, correctly me I'm wrong, but doesn't that involve aircraft over 20 kg only?

The regulations in the UK are quite clear now.

You must always fly line-of-sight and have a pilot ready to take avoiding action immediately if anything happens. It is the UAV operators responsibility to avoid other obstacles or aircraft.

The regulations cover all models of any weight used for commercial purposes and if it's over 7Kg then you will probably also need a BMFA B certificate as well to even fly it.

Plus you can't fly within 50m of any building or structure.

IMHO, these regulations are a good thing. They are to prevent idiots reading the forums, buying something based on a sales-pitch then flying a TRex700 over a town without even seeing where it is.

I saw one example of some guy posting videos flying along roads and over populated areas. We saw another post later about how his motor shaft had sheared. Imagine if it did that over some people : do you think he could have spotted a safe landing area and successfully autoed while doing 30mph in the back of a car (maybe even watching the downlink instead) ?.

This would be completely illegal now in the UK. I can only imagine the USA will be more strict when they eventually get their act together.

This is why I'm interested to see what the FAA say to rerazors request to fly autonomously under laptop control.
