What is new?
*Carefree Function
*Yellow light to alert when voltage is low

Please download the latest firmware V1.1 from Zero UAV website or the first page of this thread to upgrade your YS-X6 online.
Thank you for the new functions!!!

Please focus on improved PTZ control functions in the next firmware. Right now it is useless for any serious photo/video usage.

I also want to know which switch positions select carefree mode. If you are still using just channel 5 and 6 for flight mode, some option will have to be removed in order to select carefree mode.

Download the latest manual. It looks like it can only be activated via the Tablet

Just updated to new fw, is there some changes to gps too? It locks now 9 satellites INSIDE concrete building. Before updating it got max 5-6. Just to compare naza and wookong never stops blinking 3 red lights.

Also resetting paraneters works now. Will test carefree tomorrow. Thanks ZeroUAV!

Hi Jose

I haven't looked at the PC software since the 1st release when it wasn't working so well, but now it looks great. Thanks for showing us what can be done.

Cheers

I re-read it and it looks like it has to be set on the Tablet / laptop and then you can use the Tx to control. Here is the extract from the manual:

"(9) Carefree
In GPS hover mode, "Carefree" can be used.Click on "enable course locked"
button in "setting" page, autopilot can record the current orientation of craft
nose. Then users can adjust the orientation of craft nose with rudder;when user
operate the left/right aileron and sticks on transmitter, the autopilot will fly to
the orientation as same as the orientation when the course is locked,not the
current orientation of craft nose. To quit "carefree", click on "disable course
locked" button."

Cheers

Switch positions have no change, you just need to click on "enable course locked"
button in "setting" page in the ground station, then the carefree can be activated.

So if your flying with only the radio and no GCS, is carefree still possible?

@ zerouav,
We are a lot to think that the limitation to 200m is too short. That will be a very good idea to change it to 400m or more, maybe, in standard version without pay charge again .

got er working on the iphone.. but now locking up. Seems to be freezing/working very very slowly. I have the router setup, and the phone configured to the network. Seems that the phone/software are not talking to the heli brain though. Going through the manual and setup steps, sees like the ip/ect are all proper. Any suggestions?

GPS has no change, maybe it's because of the surroundings.
