The manual reads correctly if you re-read it.

A much simpler solution is to live smack in the middle of 0 degree declination as I do.

Use the Resolution Center to correspond with App Review until all issues with your app version have been resolved.

I'm having a heck of a time trying to figure out my RX/TX setup on the YS.... when i plug in the ESC's they just roar at half speed.

Am I missing some settings.... I used the user manual settings and set the dec to 10.

Can't get past this last step.

I have a Spektrum DX8 with AR8000.......

Any help with this would be appreciated... i.e. How did you get your TX/RX setup..?

I had the same problem


First I downloaded the android software from the Zerouav.net site (the version I had gotten from the gethelorc site was older). After installing it I Hit the Init button on the Settings page. I then held the RC/Tx control sticks in the inverted V postion (throttle down and left, aileron down and to the right). This stopped the motors. I then set up the proper ESC type and aircraft type and compass declination angle. Then to arm the motors use this inverted V position for a couple of seconds. After you can start the motors by giving a little throttle. And then check if they are respoding properly. If you cut the throttle to zero for more than 5 - 10 seconds you will have to use the inverted V position to re arm them.

The GCS software is going to the plane location


If you go to the Map page and use the show my postion it should show your GPS location of your GCS device if you have GPS enabled on it. If you have the GPS hooked up on the plane and it is powered up then use show plane position and it should show the plane in the right position and not in China.

Yes... i've done that.. but everytime i start the GCS the google map reverts back to china... not a big deal, but i was wondering if it could just revert to last position.

Why should Apple care about this? I guess the AR Drone is ok because it is not autonomous? I supposed Apple's ultimate concern would be liability in case someone was injured. But that is definitely not a risk limited to autonomous craft.

So you won't be able to get the iPhone GCS at the app store - who cares!

ok... I'M DONE! I've put forth quite an effort trying to get this YS-X6 working and i'm finished.. I have the YS system on my XA650 V4... i have top of the line Spektrum DX8 with the AR8000 RX... went through the Install Guide Icon in the Iphone Software... can't stop those motors...

Can't stop the motors from spinning... I'm just plan confused... Shouldn't be this hard. I need someone's time (talking) or skyping whatever... before i sent the whole kit back. I'm that frustrated.
