It turns out that in South Africa we use the comma as a delimiter instead of a decimal point. So every time it saved the file it saved with a comma as the decimal point and when it came to load, it did not know what it was reading. We finally resolved it today with ZeroUAV and they have revised their App, which is busy being tested. But, for those of you in Europe, South America and South Africa and a few other countries, you must also have been having this problem.

These are the Countries affected (Green) and Blue uses the point (full stop)



I would think that the revised App will be sent out in a few days.

I like the the way the new App has been laid out. It is so much easier to use.

Well done ZeroUAV.
This problem with the commas, I mentioned it in summer, Zero Technical Department. But I thought that only happened in Spain.

Hello, my problem is this.
I can't get the gcs android app to change max speed.
It used to do it, but now I can't get it to go past 3.6m/s
I change the value, hit send, and its right back to 3.6m/s
I hit get, and it is the same 3.6m/s
Appreciate a solution please attached video of the problem.

Hi it seems that the flyer above solved his issue. Anybody have an idea whats that magnetic noise filters he is talking about?


Good number of sats.
Low shake.

0:41 off axis gps drop
1:15 lift off
4:01 radio loss?
4:15 Back landing (RTH) engaged
4:22 "xekf Velx" peaks at -458
4:32 radio control restablished? .DTB 26m
4:34 "xekf Veld" starts to rise, peaking at -141
4:37 full throttle for 1.5s does not result in alt change
4:44 Low throttle for 1s does not result in alt change
4:46 Switch to manual at low throttle = crash
4:50 impact, throttle off

-Analysis
Depends what you trust more, the AR8000 or YS-X6.
I am going with the AR as failsafe is throttle low and range was less than 70m.
During normal flight minor corrections are seen in "Manual servo position"
At 4:01 MSP input is stalled.
When input is working again throttle does not result in Alt change.
I can not see any reason why the YS would ignore MSP.
The sat signal does appear to go bad at points but not at the same time as stalled input.

Not responding to throttle is a problem.

The bad data the YS was getting may have caused it to ignore MSP


-Warning signs
High "xekf Velx" blip while on ground
High "xekf Velx" blip while on in air


-Done differently
Do not launch from a confined space, balcony?
Once RTH was enabled, do not touch mode switch.
Hi, i think the flyer above already solved the issue anybody has an idea whats that magnetic noise filters he's talking about. and lastly I would like to confirm if the ysx6 does not need the positive terminal of the esc like DJI naza and wkm?

He means these

I would go with better wiring layout than adding more weight.



Confirm, remove red , +5v wire from esc connector.

Oh ok i think your suggestion is better, and i believe rf interference can be monitored right? But i ithink i have those ferrite cores lying around. Thanks for the advice!

In a crude way.
Take props off.

Connect to GCS.
Do this outside so you get a good sat lock.
With motors off but everything powered on pick up the craft and move it around.
Now power up the motors to 1/2 throttle.
Do the exact same movement.
Turn motors and do the exact same movement for the 3rd time.

Review the logs on PC GCS.

If there is interference you will see the imu/gps values jump around for the second run.

@mr_westie

any comment on my layout? the imu is below the carbon plate under the autopilot?

i will still clean up the wiring. some of the esc wires are near the imu would you think there will be issues?

I see you are using a good frame

I would move the wifi module to one of the arms and point the antenna down.

* Fix the bug: when auto taking off, if switched to Back Landing craft will fly circling around in horizon.
* Blackbox function added, Autopilot will auto save the flying data (the data of one minute before powered off )
for playback and analysis.
* Immediately fix unsymmetric al center of gravity of craft when auto-takeoff.
* Flying security is improved. When unexpected careen happens, motors will auto shut down two minutes later
even if it's Auto Mode and throttle is in the bottom position.
---

Nice, that should address a few of my concerns

The black box function is great.
Too bad if you crash far away and can't make it to the unit to unplug it.

Do you" as written in red on your screen", select the init setup option on the settings screen before?

I did it today with my Android (new machine - I had to start from fresh config) and it worked fine.

The default working mode of WIFI is "Router Mode", but it can also support "Point-to-Point Mode", so if necessary, you can configurate WIFI between the different modes referring to the video.

Yes but you are referring to software called "Wifi config" in the video, can it be downloaded somewhere? I know i can log in with browser to 192.168.1.254 so no problem but would be convenient if you put that software to your website downloads section too, if the software is meant to be used to configure wifi module.

Thanks,

Blew an ESC today on my XM-6. The YS-X6 somehow just took over and Auto landed. WDF? I thought hexas don't have redundancy.... I knew something was up when I observed a wobble or two and TX throttle became unresponsive. Landed, and wind tipped it on landing. I can now confirm the new firmware works to cut the motors when tilted over.

Just an update,

I moved my YS-X6 to my Hexa frame (custom made, avatar picture).

I had a first flight this morning with defaults settings and I'm happy with the stability.

I may upgrade firmware later next week.

Sorry to hear your flip and esc lost but VERY GOOD to hear there's redundancy.

Rukie, you need to turn on / setup hotspot on your phone (tethering). Set it up as what you've set on router (name & encryption settings).

Can't configure properly my new YS-X6

Hi, I recently moved from DJI-M to YS-X6 and put it on a larger frame (Hexa S6-PRO), but I am having so many problems to configure it when DJI was so easy to install and use.
First, because of the frame dimensions and ESCs without connectors, I had to do myself so many wiring extensions and connections because of the short wires from motors and to connect the ESCs cables to a power distribution board. I am suspecting now that all these connections, if not well soldered, could have introduced electric resistances that could affect motor performance and smooth working. Actually now when I put the YS-X6 in GPS mode, the motors only start at more or less 50% of throttle and even so, some of them start before than others. As soon as I move past 50%, immediately the motors' speed increases to 100%, so most of the upper part of the throttle run is unresponsive. Going back with a small movement of the throttle below 50% the motors almost stop.
I think I have done all the steps recommended by the manual as radio calibration, ESC stroke calibration, compass calibration (this last with not very good results actually), etc...
I positioned the IMU on a plate below the main control and it is completely surrounded by ESC's and Power board's wires. I don't know if this could produce some magnetic effects on it, because I cannot do a successful compass calibration.
I put two videos on you tube about these problems:
YS-X6 test (14 min 55 sec)

YS-X6 extremely fast increase motors' speed (7 min 43 sec)


I have got other gimbal stabilization problems, but the first two problems make it really dangerous to do a test fly.
Any comment and suggestion highly appreciated.

arturARM and Archet,

A lot of folks who switched to YS-X6 have/had owned a WKM. If you dont get good results, it is likely that you have not setup the machine properly. This forum is a very good place to share and troubleshoot. As in any other system, setup is the most critical step in getting a good performance out of our machine.

Archet, I suspect that your setup has either one of these problems but before you try the following suggestions, please update your YS to the latest firmware, same goes to the GCS software in your ipad/ android:
- ESC not calibrated properly, this is the most likely reason for the problem you're having. The one stroke calibration is a bit tricky to get it right so redo the calibration and make sure you hear the calibration confirmation tone from the ESC.
- Check the settings by click on "get" page. If you're using normal PWM ESC, which is the most common ESC out there, the reading in the "setting" page should say "normal ESC". Check other settings such as Sbus and magnetic declination etc. You can change the setting by going to manual 1 (channel 5 position 1) then click "init setup" in the GCS. Change the settings then press "send". Click on quit setting and confirm the change by clicking on "get".
- Check the readings on the GCS, see the velc values if the numbers get jumpy in huge increments or if it reads large numbers then the IMU suffers from interference. Make sure that you move sources of interference as further away from the IMU as possible.

Hope this helps.

If you are in gps mode throttle shouldn't be linear. In gps mode takeoff and landing is kind of automatic, when you push throttle over 50% plane takes off. So if you test throttle on ground in gps or manual 2 mode without props, throttle might feel codusing. Make ground tests in manual 1 mode.

@Kary and Fajar, I am using the latest firmware and GCS.
I have done ESC stroke calibration few other times to be sure (the ESC Type is Normal), I have changed Remote Control Mode from adaptive (?) to Normal.
The Xekf velx, Xekf vely an Xekf veld range is within -4 and +4, but usually read 0, 1 or 2.
Do you think I have first to test the system in manual mode with propellers? I feel sort of more confident to test in manual mode because I can feel the motors' control through the throttle.
When testing in GPS mode you say that over 50% the system takes off, but then what happens if the motors run immediately at maximum speed? How can I control its vertical speed in that condition? Why the motors/system should be confused in a ground test without propellers in GPS mode? It should be a normal test to do because of safety.
Thanks

Hi Archet

I found it difficult to take off and generally move around in GPS mode, so I always took off and landed in manual and even flew around in manual mode. But slowly I got used to the settings in GPS mode.

It sounds like your stroke calibration of the Throttle and ESC needs to be done again. Using the Android App, use the Installation Guide and skip the steps that are already done until you get to Throttle calibration.

Cheers
Rob

Yes i would try first in manual, but try first to find throttle level where your copter hovers. When you know approximately the point it will hover you should launch it quickly to air so it does not tip over. If you try in gps mode don't get confused motor speeds. When you push throttle over 50%, motors will spool up for take off, under 50% it will just freespool almost same speed no matter if throttle is at 10% or 40%. If you don't have props on and push throttle over half it just tries to increase power to take off so it goes to maximum. Of course ys thinks there is props on and tries to take off. When you have props on YS will detect the point where it takes off and it will take off automatically in correct speed, you don't need to worry it flying away at max speed

Hope this helps a little.
