    I've been pondering over getting a Futaba controller when I saw the 18MZ.
    Which basically has a mini ipad like display for all kinds of functions.
    I just want to know, with all that information readily available, is it capable of showing the aircraft's location, distance from home and altitude as the ground station does?

    Any one have a video that shows this part of it?

    If I were DJI, I'd have a controller similar to this puppy.

    At $3000, it had better do EVERYTHING, including taking out the trash and walking the dog! :D

    I did see a video where it actually shows that information.
    Another feature I like, the transmitter has a built in camera and you can see it live on the controller.
    The ultimate all in one controller.
    $3,000? yeah right. So I'll take like two.
