Yep, I just paid the balance for mine today as well. Initially, I will probably replace the Naza on this new AG500-NX "crab"-style platform, which we are just starting to test. This is a purpose-built platform designed to get under the FAA's new 2kg/4.4lb limit, but still carry a decent size pack (4s-4400) and a NEX-5N/7. Anyway, I'm hoping that the YS-X6's gimbal outputs will work a lot better than the flawed DJI implementation on the WK-M/Naza.

The only problem is that the weight of the YS-X6 might be an issue with this particular setup, but we'll see. We are also working on a larger Y6 "lobster" platform, that will use six of these same 2216-800 SunnySky motors, and will be used primarily to carry my HDR-PJ710V. This will either get this YS-X6, or I'll get a second one, if it works out.
