Tarot ZYX-S Flight Controller for Quads

Has anybody tried the "new" Tarot ZYX-S on a quad yet? I'm anxious to hear some feedback on it.
It has proved amazing for FBL on helis and the new video on YouTube of the profile plane hovering shows amazing potential for the aircraft mode.
Now I want to know how it will be for a quad controller. One of my biggest questions will be if it can do auto-leveling. The software settings for "quad" settings looks quite interesting.

I just got one and am going to play with it to see how it works.

...a penny for your thoughts!

What you really want is the ZYX-M, made specifically for multirotors. I have two of them, and they are fantastic.

Beware of Tarot ZYX25 FC!!!!!!

Caution!!!!!!!

Do not trust Tarot ZYX25 FC. It is the worst FC I have ever seen.

Tarot sends their FC units without any quality control. Only God knows whether your pieces is good or bad.

I have lost my expensive Tarot T960 due to this FC. It flipped two times. For the time, it did not lift from the ground & flipped damaging all six 1755 CF props. On the second time it climbed to about 20 feet, wobbled heavily and after wobbling 6 to 7 times it flipped on its back & came to ground. This all happened in GPS velocity mode. Even toy FC's will not behave like Tarot.

Tarot is projecting this FC is for larger AP ships. They do not know AP people are putting lot of money in AP ships. We do not use scratched props on our multis & it hurts when you lose an expensive hexa with 5008 motors & 1755 CF props.

Use this FC at your own risk. I was lucky that I was flying this FC in a wide open area without anybody nearby except me. I can't imagine if someone standing nearby was hurt due to this FC.

There is a known issue with the soldering on the cables inside the GPS puck. Once resoldered properly, there should be no issues.

It's a shame about your UAV.

I rather doubt his claim that he lost his T960. It also sounds like there was another issue, but we won't know, because he doesn't seem o want to respond in any way. His mind is made up. Maybe he's a missile engineer?
