Hello,

Ok I upgraded my GCS on my iPad (cant do it to the iphone because I updated it to iOS6 and there are no jailbreaks available unfortunately)

Set some way points and discovered purely by accident that if I tap on teh touch screen rapidly over and over, over the way point you wish to edit and eventually it will launch the "Waypoint Tool" window.

Now, does anyone know how to set these new functions?

1. Hovering time: if I enter 30 does it = 30 seconds?

2. Hovering Flag: what does this mean and do?

3. Snapshot: There are several choices here for example:

Disable snapshot
Enable snapshot
Interval snapshot 1
Interval snapshot 2
Take snapshot/sec
Keep Previous State

Thanks in advance!
Lo

I suggest that you use the android GCS to set it up. It is best if you use the "Install Guide" on the Android GCS as this takes you step by step through the procedure.

We haven't seen pics of your setup yet. Just 2 things: Do not use the sponge under the IMU and do not locate the IMU under the Main Controller.

Cheers
Rob

Edit:

Below are the steps out of the Install Guide:

Start Install

Check Data is connected. If connected click next

Step 1 : Please press the button "Channel Alignment" and confirm it, and then push/pull all pole positions of the RC Tx to the maximum and minimum of the leftmost/rightmost within 5 seconds. After 5 seconds the AP will finish the auto collection. Please confirm whether the manual operation and real RC operation displayed in "Data Interface" keep coincidency when moving any operating level. Only go to the next step after confirming that they are coincident.

Step 2: Check CH5/CH6 and set FS

Please carefully confirm whether the CH5/CH6 channel is correct: check whether the flight status bar on the GCS interface is switched to "Manual" "Circle Position" "Auto waypoint circling" and "back Landing" when moving CH5/CH6.
Set the FS of RC Tx as CH5=position 3, Channel 6: position 3, Thr is near the middle position and check whther the flight status is "Back Landing" by powering off the RC Tx.

Step 3: ESC stroke calibration

Please get into the settings first (Flight status displays "Settings", break the pole as V shaped to open throttle insurance and push the THR pole position to the maximum within 5 seconds, power on the ESC after completing above operation. Pull the throttle pole back to minimum after a prompt sound from the ESC. After completing the ESC stroke calibration please exit the settings, and get into next step.

Step 4: Set craft styles and parameters

Please read the user manual carefully, fill in correct parameters and recheck it. Push the throttle after breaking the pole and check whether the mixing control method is correct after starting the motors

Step 5: Check the installing directions of the IMU/GPS

Step 6: Complete magnetic calibration in outdoor space

Update:

My Wifi modem is partially inoperative. I can get data but cannot send orders to XS-X6.

Direct serial link (USB) is OK. Serial Link + Data modem is also OK with the PC.

I'm looking for a spare Wifi modem from ZeroUAV and also in contact with the support team.

I'm having a similar problem, upgraded the fc and tablet and I'm not getting any data on the tablet from the fc. Tablet is logged on the WIFI transmitter says it's locked (solid blue light), but my tablet is not sending or receiving data and it worked fine before the upgrade. Do I have to rerun the whole init setup again?

Fine tuning yaw

Greetings YS-X6 brothers!

I am almost done with my setup and would like to proceed to outdoor flight tests, however I noticed that M2 & M4 motors are warmer than M1, M3 by almost 10 C

I observed REAL SERVO numbers and noted that at hover (manual mode thr=65)

RUDDER= L9

that means my model is wanting to yaw right and so AP is giving L9 input to balance the craft - this means motors on these arms work harder=higher heat.

Any advice on how to FINE TUNE YAW so I can make motors work more or less equally?

Is the YAW stick centered?
If you are not making it YAW, you may need to do radio calibration again.

Otherwise your frame may need thrust adjustment.
Motors might be tilted sightly?

A few of us are having a similar problem.I suggest that you reinstall the previous version until they have fixed it. You should not have to rerun the init setup again. But not everyone.

Thanx Rob. For us the problem is more complex as this file also had the upgrade to 16 waypoints

I wonder if they changed the GCS protocol but haven't upgraded the GCS yet.

Hi Rick.

The waypoint upgrade is permanently loaded into your system and therefore any new FW has no impact on it.

I just checked again with ZeroUAV and this is what they say "It is permanently installed once loaded, and the upgrade has no relationship with new firmware."
