Another crash. Worst one yet.
Not a new bug but an old one I though I put behind me.

YS-X6 Crash due to shake/wind? (0 min 54 sec)


It was not that windy.
It gets a few gusts? on it's way back.
Sending the shake value to16-28.
Over 1.5s something happens that sends it up to 38.
It goes back to < 10 for 1.
Then starts ramping up again.
The frame is basically now oscillating and the FC has got no hope of recovery.
Tilts over the 60 degrees, motors cut off.
Craft rights itself and starts to fall/flip.
35m > 0m 2.5s
It lands head first as it is top heavy. On purpose.
From start of the oscillation to the motors cut off, 2.5s.
Had I been flying fpv, I may have been able to correct in time.


Possible contributors to the crash
-wind
-non rigid f550 frame
-slow pilot response?

- -

Damage
-bent batteries
-4 arms
-Gimbal
-Cover


Lessons for the future?
This particular configuration had been flown in much stronger wind with no issues.
This would have been it's 5th flight.
Had I been watching the GCS may have noticed the shake value spiking.
At that point I could have landed.
I will install a black box crash camera onboard.

I will now meet with my programmer friend and put together a stand alone alerter program I can run in the background.
It will monitor a few critical parameters and play a sound file.

I do have a more rigid frame in the works.


Why top heavy?

Sorry to hear about your crash. I have my gimbal working better ,but still not smooth yet . I've also been trying to fly in 15 to 25 mph winds and I have to wonder if the gimbal itself is offering to much wind resistance, maybe it's time to look for a better option for a gimbal. good luck Westie

I think its time for you to through that frame away, that frames has an record off vibrations why would you risk your exspensive electronics on a rattle case.

Get a desent frame and do a clean and neat install on it sure you would be a happy customer.

One more thing your billet connectors tape then with insulation tape to keep them together and to make sure motor wires does not short.

Wow nice. Is that Bathanga bridge? What type of props are you using and where did you buy them? I just converted my X8 into a hex. I had a few problems with the earlier props snapping in flight and had a major crash. Long story but Ill go back to the X8 later on.

Indeed that is Bethanga Bridge. Do you know the area? I'm only using some 1150 Graupner props till my new frame arrives (going hexa also). Then I'm selling the Droidworx ADX-4 frame (coax version). I'll remove all the electrics etc off it, and sell the frame only.

I agree with Andre. That frame/combination looks to be more problems then it is worth.
My YS-X6 carbon fiber octo with 15" propellers hover with shake as low as 1, and only have short spikes up to 3 when flying aggressive or in strong winds. Anything over 5-6 and I would start to look for alternatives.

Perhaps something like the xaircraft CF hexa frame? Reasonably cheap and compatible with your existing electronics. http://www.goodluckbuy.com/xaircraft...er-flight.html

That combination is now retired
No more limp quad forme.

Building a Rusty based frame.
http://www.shop.aglhobbiesllc.com/

The plates were a little small for what I wanted to do so I drilled out the DJI plates.
Works great



Still not tidy as I have a few experiments to run first.
Overlaping props
http://www.multirotorforums.com/show...peller-Designs
Which will means the mounts will be shifted and rotated.

Will switch the arms over to CF for the final build.
Still trying to find the right motor.
