YS-X6 testing

Hi all,

Well, after some mind jamming days, I have manage to get it going and it fly. Will try to get a video post this afternoon. I was having a lot of issue trying to figure how it work, since the full English manual is still not finish and most of the time I have no idea what is what.

YES, the FC is huge! but on the trade off it does have a lot of extra ports. Voltage regulator inside, I believe it can go up to 4s.

But I test fly it this morning, it's twitching a bit (no idea what to adjust in the software yet). But I was brave enough to kick it into Altitude/Attitude hold, altitude hold was great, but do to the twitching, attitude not so great. I am having a little vibration on the set up, so maybe this need to be fix first. I got very brave then kick it into GPS hold, then I was surprised. I won't say anything, maybe the video would say it all. It was able to lock onto 11 satelites.

BTW, I got the wifi to work with my Android and it transfer live data back. Pretty cool stuff, you can see your exact location, point and go, joy stick control (of course I have not try any of this).

Throw any question you have here, but can't guarantee if I know all the answers.

I know, I know, video!

Preorder deal

980.00 (free shipping for US customers) for those first 10 who preorder.

Including: Main controller, IMU, GPS/Compass, Wifi Downlink (gyro dampner mount, gps mount, wires)

The list of features given on standard kit:
- MC+IMU+GPS+LED+WIFI (of course, the hardware !)
- GS Software(Support Android and Apple System)
- Auto Takeoff/Go Home /Landing
- Follow ME! no limit
- realtime Flight Status
- Gimbal Stabilization Lock (POI)
Within 10s, Fly circle route with Fixed Radius 20m (time is limited to 10seconds, a fix 20meter radius circle.)
- Low Voltage Protection Warning
- Click&Go: Click&Go Fly within 30m, can't repeat operate within 20s
- 4 Waypoints design within 100meters radius

I think that's fair right? Actually that's the best I can do. I would like the price to go down too, but the manufacture keep mention that other control with the same features cost almost twice as much.

Where to buy?

LOL! I wish that was the case, but no, the IMU is in between the frame. I don't have the PC software yet, I am using the GS android software, it's simple enough after I got the english version... lol, the Chinese version, humm not so much. But there's perameter in there like gain that I have no idea what change what.


MC = 61x92mm (no I am not joking)
IMU = (about 40x45mm) hard to get to it now.
Wifi = 4x65mm
GPS/Compass = 55x12mm

Let not discuss about the price now since it still might change. Let talk about the size, performance, features.

Here's a quick video of the GPS hold, note: this is all default setting, have not able to change any gain yet. Don't know how.

Seems a bit like V 1.0 hardware right now. But I am excited to see another option. This is good for us consumers - provided they don't blow themselves up with bad customer service or infrequent updates etc. I would not be surprised to see the price over 1000. And it's certainly a unique approach to the waypoint/mobile interface thing. Seems like a logical approach for short range waypoint functionality.

I am interested to see more!

Hey guys,

Here's some interesting option in the software.

- Max Speed (I do believe you can set the max speed that the aircraft will fly around) I have test it and it seem to work fairly well. Could be very useful for AP?

- Radio, Adaptive, Normal, SBUS, JR Satellite.

- ESC, Nomal (400hz), XA ESC (500hz), IIC ESC, Other

When can we see the English manual and when will it be shipping?

I have the draft of the English manual, but I don't think you guy want to see it... They are working on the full version now.

I am thinking to take preorder if enough USA customer is interested. The price is firmed at 1130.00, I would like it to be lower as well. But, if you think about it, it does have a lot more features. They told me the MC is so big because it have more hardware for later expansion for more cool features, so who know what they will come up?

Anyone would like to preorder and for preorder special pricing, please pm or email us. sales@gothelirc.com .
If we have enough preorder, we can have it within 10 days.
