So with the latest firmware we all have four waypoints now?

Am I understanding this correctly?

Hey guys, yeah, YS-X6 is always with 4waypoints as basic version. It can be upgraded to 16waypoints/50waypoints/128waypoints too.

Probably because ZeroUAV isn't a RCG sponsor.

Hi guys,

Is there really anyone using YS successfully in heavy lift setup? I have tested now around 100 flights and i'm having two constant problems. First i cannot get rid of small vibration which is only noticeable in video watched in full screen afterwards. I have tried with 6 different well balanced props, rebalanced motors couple of times, all balanced and balanced again with large variety of different parameters and it's always there. With WKM i don't get any vibration at all so it has to be related to YS somehow. It's kind of very small roll direction oscillation which is most noticeable in corners in video.

My P/R sensitivity values are now around 70-80, if i go higher it oscillates and lower it's too sensitive. Atti is now 25, if go higher it oscillates even in 70/P/R, low end i don't know it's already very low. How low it is safe to go with atti values? Motion compensation i have tried in range from 40 to 190 but not much difference, oscillates when very high but same small vibration is there when it's very low.

Other thing is i get sudden yaw drifts, i've got them from the beginning almost in every flight. Recalibrated compass many many times and really don't know why it drifts, even in dead calm. I have rechecked motors are straight few times with laser spirit and i only can tell they are very straight. Also tried to tilt the motors to help yaw 3 degrees but it didn't help. Possibly might be related low ATTI value i need to use?

Is there really anyone flying YS successfully in bigger (over 5kg) setups? Do i need to go back to WKM and put YS back to smaller frame or is it possible to get this setup flying without vibrations? In every other ways i really like the YS system much over WKM and i really like to use it but looks like i just can't get it right there. I really appreciate all suggestions that might be helpful.

Here is video showing yaw drift and also vibration:

yaw drift (0 min 13 sec)

I do. 5Kg and 14Kg with prof. camera.

I even use the standard settings and they work for me.

Did you use only double-sided tape under the IMU (i did).

Did you place your antenna(s) and receiver/transmitter far away from the IMU

Well, i don't know whats far enough to avoid emi from Tx/Rx. Here is pictures of my imu mounting, IMU is placed under battery tray and PDB is quite close 22mm under IMU. Imu is mounted on 6mm vibration absorbing gel sheet.
