My quad in back landing operation:
YS-X6 - Back Landing (6 min 2 sec)


By the way, is it possible to make the back landing faster? It took about 2 minutes to touch the ground. You can see on video that I almost get on manual control once the battery was almost empty, I was afraid it coundn't complete the operation successfully. Fortunately it completed.

To get that you'd be three posts winner. It seems not possible now.

Correct me if I'm wrong

It is hard not to have servo jitter.
I'm waiting for my gimbal to arrive.
It's gears driven, so I hope jittering will be reduced.

@Zerouav, Any new software updates coming? I suggest the software user inteface could be further improved. Its rather confusing the steps needed to make the copter perform waypoint, how to change value in software etc etc. could the software be used in landscape also...?

When the GCS shows 50A.
200A real.
4x the displayed value in the GCS.
This will not work because the mv / Amp is different for the 100 and 200 Amp.

I have a 200Amp sensor and is giving a wrong value to the GCS.

Two options here:

Use a Arduino mini (or something else) to convert to the right voltage.

My advise and preferred option: Look for a 300A sensor, any will do and use again a Arduino or other processor to convert this to the correct value.

If you use two separate LiPo's it is even better to use two sensors to a Arduino and let a little program calculate the total of current and output this.

It should work as I have suggested.
But as you pointed out, the reported mah consumption / current will be incorrect in the GCS.
You just have to do some maths (multiply by 4) to get the actual Current/AMP.

Even with the correct voltage level the max will be
40mv per amp. Max of 3300mv adc range
3300/40 = *82.5A
Or if they use a 5v adc reference
5000/40 = *125A

Unless Zero changer the firmware to allow different mv/A that is our limit.
