That is exactly?

The function that allows the change of altitude in the waypoints? and other functions relaccionadas with waypoints? as the waiting time at waypoints ...

But the servo doesn't want to move, if i move the multirotor it's blocked.
If i make init, the gimbal comes on the middle ( good position) but if i stop init the gimbal goes on the corner.
i don't understand what happens
Did you connect the ch7 and ch8 of Ys-x6 to your receiver? I think you need it for the gimbal to work.

Id be happy for now with a version for IOS that did not require Jailbreaking and hopefully compatible with upcoming IOS 6 as well. A iPad 3 version would be nice but I would not expect that any time soon.

Ok guys, so I have an interesting problem. I'm trying to get this gimbal to work with the YS-X6 frame, and here is what's happening. For the roll, I'm using an S3156 Futaba servo. For the pitch I'm using a Hitec HS-65MG servo. To power the servos, I'm using a standard 4-5amp UBEC and sending the signal wire of both servos directly into the FC.

The Futaba servo works fine. If I plug it into either the roll or pitch cable, the servo functions as it should. The problem is with the Hitec servo. When it's plugged in, it makes a noise as if it's at one extreme of the it's endpoint (it's not however, as it's completely centered). The motion of the servo is not smooth at all, although it does move in either direction using an aux dial on the Tx. If I plug the servo directly in the Rx, it works perfectly fine! It almost seems like the YS-X6 has some sort of issue communicating with Hitec servos?

What do you guys think?
