Well, I am hung up on the wiring harness. I expected to just solder the esc wires together then connect them to a 12 ga going to the battery. Simple stuff. Unfortunately, the wires from the esc's are very short and only reach the length of the arm. Does anybody know how these were intended to connect? Am I missing a wire harness with the kit? About the only option I can come up with is to extend the wires a foot or so but didn't want to do that until I could understand the "correct" way to make the harness (if there is one).

Yes, I have seen this in a few other forums. Looks like Foxtech also worked out a deal with Zaitsevsky as well. They have pricing on their site along with some videos. I am hoping to do a side by side at some point - not too soon though. Still trying to get this one built.

Only time will tell which solution performs better. If only zero reads the international market better, they would probably go on developing a hex instead of quad.

I started assembling my Steadi470 and decided to make some videos of the process - As far as I know there is no documentation other than what is on the first post of this thread. It is a little slow going but hopefully I will get there.....eventually. I am hung up on deciding what approach I should take for making a wiring harness. Extend each ESC wire and use bullet connectors to a 4 way looks to be the way I am leaning. In any case here are a couple of videos that might help someone else.

Hi Socratic...good videos. I am watching quite closely and if I see something that I think is wrong, especially when it comes to setting up the YS-X6 side of it, I will let you know.

Do I see a copy of the misconception of the first version of the first copy (mini650)? It was a mistake with a third axis for a camera tilting.

I think you are correct. I was wondering what that servo holder was for. I see your point regarding balance. Hmmmmmm

Shock Mount for IMU?

Does anyone know if I need to make a shock mount for the two IMU units? I believe the IMU requires a shock pad when bought separately???

Do not use the soft shock pad as it causes a lot of problems. Use Double sided tape. This has been used successfully on all the YS-X6 installations.
