They may come up with "operations mode" in the future where we can preset parameters into a comprehensive plan for an entire waypoint operation. They should have plans to implement the mode as their competitor has already implemented similar feature in their waypoint system.

Right now, the basic stuff works.
What I would like to see in a future rev is a target point for the cam lock..
perhaps its there already, and I just haven't seen it yet.

Like mikro uses..select a target and then select way points around the target where the craft will auto yaw around for the cam lock. I suppose this is part of the enhanced version of the firmware?

in the map you can click a point to bring up a smiley on the map, activate ptt lock thingy then move your aileron stick and the copter will fly in a circle with the yaw lock to the smiley. Tried that in the field last week but I had to abort the circle because the radius was a bit too wide for me. yeah, this feature is part of the enhanced kit.

So I'm slowly putting this thing together.
Got it inside my GhettoStar clone frame.
It seems to be really heavy. I will probably fly it with 4S 5000 pack, which is another few hundred grams. Seeing how I never built anything > 1kg AUW I'm wondering if it will fly.
It's 1.8kg now without battery.

It's about time you fly something with more mass, TC.

What's your view so far Fajar?

Knowing your own all 3, how does it compare to DJi and XA, in GPS position hold? And Altti?

Do you need any special hardware for that? I can not understand how the connection between the joystick and the android GS is made.

2 different things. There is a virtual joystick in the GCS software, but I think redridinghood is asking about using a PC Flight Joystick with the YS as shown in the product videos.

They mention using a specific wifi version of a joystick, I am looking for it I can't recall off hand. I would imagine that it connects to the same router as the YS and somehow is detected by the GCS, but some clear definition of the process would be cool. The manual doesn't say a word about it.

Would be great to have a radio TX in the shape of joysticks it wouldn't be hard to make. Both Radio TX and Joystick use the same type of pots but just different spring rates.

TC what ESC's are you using on that setup and are they flashed with high speed firmware.
Thanks ahead of time.
For some reason I can't wrap my head around spending over 50 dollars a unit for 25 amp Castle creations high speed ESC's but really trying to lock down a high speed ESC that will be reliable in flying aircraft that are worth more than my first automobile. Or first born as far as that goes lol

I wouldnt give CC anymore of my money.. Just do a read on the quality of the last year and they support.. They used to be on top but now...?

Coming from heli's I have seen more than one cc esc catch fire and destroy very expensive birds and would not trust any of them now!
