Those motors are too high KV for a 6s set-up on multi-rotor's IMHO

To give you an idea a fully charged
6s= 25.2v x 600kv = 15'120RPM
6s= 25.2v x 450kv = 11'340RPM
6s= 25.2v x 320kv = 8064RPM (as used on the DJi s800)

A good 4s set up uses around the 700~770kv
4s= 16.8v x 770kv = 12'936RPM
4s= 16.8v x 700kv = 11'760RPM

Test is on hold while I'm waiting for another NAZA

I am almost done building my Ecilop, all going well

I tried to find some pics how ppl put the Ys-X6 on the frame, I may not have looked very well but could not find many ;-)

I have a Zenmuse so am not using the Ecilop for NEX work at the moment. I am going to build a larger Ecilop for FS700 shortly though... watch this space!

p.s. I still think that the Ecilop is the best value for money camera gimbal out there. I am only using Zenmuse now as I have to shoot kitesurfing in very high winds, and its the only gimbal that can guarantee the shot in 20-30 knots of breeze...

Did you have a tracking system on the quad or did you just have it in GPS mode and go foward as you were moving?

Thanks!
it's in tracking mode..

Any recommendations for the gimbal servos? I was going to use the Savox that came with my Steadi470 but once I started assembling the quad I realized that they are full size and won't fit. I need the mini. The manual calls for MKS DS8910 but these are mighty expensive! Is there anything else recommended?
