Hi all!

Well I buy and HEXA combo from CNCHelicopter to work with DJI wk-m and I mounted here! I manual mode the copter fly amazing, but in ATTI or GPS ATTI he unstable an little, in ATTI GPS he stay in an 2m diameter but probably need some GAINS adjust!

I would know if anyone have this smae combo and what GAINS do you use?

Thank you

Richard I wish I could help you on the detail instructions for that TX. Which by the way is a great TX.

Basically, you have to do a mix so when you flip the switch it puts the control mode channel in the Fail Safe Highlighted area when viewing the control mode switch travel in the TX calibration screen.

I haven't had any problems with the aluminum ones, I even use them on the APC props.

I have my wookong m setup on a rusty's frame octo with ntm prop drive 35-36 910kv motors and turnigy plush 30a escs. It flies great and I have been tinkering with settings and setups to get it just how i like it.

I have the IMU shielded with foil tape (except the baro sensor), and the plate between my electronics and my gps is covered with foil tape too. THe gps is on the longest pole and I've tried to keep it as far away from all electronics as possible (it has at least 20cm from any electonics)

The problem I'm having is I get full gps lock within 2 or so mins, and gps holds great in the air. However a few minutes into flying, without fail the gps drops out and I get three red flashes. It happens all the time, whether close to the ground or high in the air.
If I bring the octo down and restart it, the gps locks almost straight away for a few minutes and then drops again.

I'm not getting white flashes, have tried mounting gps pole foam tape in case it was vibrations and still no difference.

Can anyone point me in the direction of what is going wrong? It is getting so frustrating because I'm dying to try out RTH and auto land and I need it to be reliable.
It sounds like the gps is being hurt when the motors run. Either power wires to or from the esc or emi from the esc is killing the gps. Try tying it down or removing the props and running the motors. If the problem repeats it is motor related. The only solution to emi is sheilding or distance.

Post some pictures of you instalation so we can see where everything is mounted.

Hey guys thought I would show a short promo clip from a couple of day ago. The Y-6 and the WKM are working well but getting things sorted out and still have a few issues to work out but getting there.
Hope you all have a Very Merry Christmas.
