Application is missing in the PC GCS Zip file (first page of the thread) and OK from the ZeroUAV web page ...

Do you have some information about YS-X6-P? like time of release, upgrades offers, etc.

Thanks

Marc

hi guys, here's some footage of me using followcam in the alps, i want to use it to make snowboard films.
It's a real pity that at the moment follow cam dosn't really work, as it does not follow alltitude! i had to do that manually, pretty hard if you want to ride fast!

Hello,
I am testing the follow me function on my YS 6. the video is above

The problem is the drone will not follow my altitude. I want the drone to stay 5meters above my phone altitude at all times. Is there a way to make this possible? My Galaxy S3 has a very accurate presure sensor which i'm sure could be used.

Also, When using follow me there is possibility to loose wifi reception, in this situation the drone will "back landing" to the launch point. This can be very bad on a mountain as the launch point could be several kilometers up hill. What we need is if wifi signal is lost that a new home location at the last known point of the phone.

Thanks for your time, tristan

Is there a problem with the FC

I had a problem with my FC or the throttle not responding resulting in a crash that damaged one of my camcorder and gimbal. I thought it was just pilot error, but recently I notice 3 other cases of the same problem. Is there a hidden problem that just randomly pops up?

It is a hex with Avroyo motors 2814, it had position hold engaged and I was move forward at about 10m high and about 50m infront of me when I stopped it shot uptoabout 15m with no throttle response. I returned to manual mode Throttle at about65% but it started flipping end over end and crashed. I had been flying it like this for over 4 months

Is it possible to control the Zero UAV YS-X6 with only a Jeti Duplex 2.4EX RSAT2 Satellite Receiver (PPM) in combination with the Jeti DC-16 transmitter ?

Have you sent your hj file to ZeroUAV support. It would be good for them to see this and maybe tell you what could have caused the crash. And if there is a problem, then they will know what the problem is so they can hopefully correct.

TX with YS

Hy friends..i love this forum and i purchased the ys-x6 today and i work on that for all the day....in a hexacopter
i have a doubt... how can i configure my tx?
in the manual says fixed wind ( i think this is a airplane, right??? )
But in my DX18, when i set airplane, a lot of types appear to me..winelevon, flaperon, 2 aeleron, 2 rudder, 4 aileron, etc.....
how should i proceed??? cause i configure the android perfectly, but not align the channels.....i think the problem is in the radio......
thanks for attention

YS X6 Did any one use other Radio TxRx than FUTABA. If I am not interested in using S-BUS why do I need FUTABA? I do not use AETR for Gimbal. Let me know details of your Radio system if you tried.

Im using Graupner, only reason to use futaba is S-bus, Which is handy.

Can any one help me with setting up the two, three position switches. How do you set it up so that when you enter GPS Att on channel 5, Then be able to switch auto hover mode on and off. It seems like you cant use all three positions of the second switch because it would have to be in one of the modes. Eg, over righting GPS att, because it would have to be in auto hover, auto nag or go home mode.

Any help would be greatly appreciated
