ok i have a phantom vision and a dji s800 evo with all the bells and whistles.

why is it that i needed a 300 dollar unit to make the evo have groundstation, and now the phantom can work off the naza.

couldnt they have done this with the wookong-m...considering it is top of the line flight controller

Just Guessing Here!
It is just a guess and my opinion: DJI is probably doing this because the EVO is very expensive and outside the affordability for most modelers involved in Multi-Rotors.

A means for DJI to sell more Phantom Visions and Vision Plus Quads.

I am happy that DJI made this available as a Free upgrade.

DJI is the only one that knows the answers, but chances are they won't make it known publicly.

Again, this is my opinion and it is probably just a marketing thing!

The Vision is WIFI .. Very Short range .. you need the Data Modems for longer range and safety. I have the Data modems on my s800 (Wookong) .. works very well!

your tight
yeah your right i did forget about that....us phantom guys are technically going threw the wifi repeater.....ground station is cool. but everytime i do a mission, im always thinking jeeez...i hope it comes back....it always has....but i have seen some pretty nast youtube vids showing otherwise.....the whole flip of death thing, it has to be user error...low battery loose cable.....both of my multirotors from dji s800evo and phantom are rock stable
