I really dont know i spoke to them on skype and they told me if i want the extra imu i need to send them my electronics then they do something my be on the hardware i dont know , for it to be able to work with the extra imu.

But i think before they will do such things they only sell the complete frame with electronics as a package to promote the frame.

Andre is correct.
You send back your electronics.
Pay extra, the difference between the YS-X6 and ZERO-Steadi470.
About us$1k
They send you back a complete ZERO-Steadi470 system.

With that preorder special I would argue for a lower price difference.

They will not sell just the extra IMU on it's own.

Off topic question: XS-Y6, how well does it work with a larger size multirotors? I see you run a coaxial Octo. I have a Mikrokopter Octo XL. Looking for some feedback on how flight characteristics are with larger frames and much heavier lift capabilities? Much appreciated.

WE use it on a 950mm hex and here is a videoof it in very windy conditions. We are filming astructure so we are moving it not the wind

PS Youtube stabilized the video, but it didn't need much

Good old YouTube! Love the moving time stamp. Looks like some oscillations in movement even though in windy conditions. Probably can be adjusted in gains a bit. Not sure how much wind, but thanks for the feedback. Good luck.

That's what I'm looking at too except a Y6. And I'd like to stick an AG700 gimbal on it with an HFG controller and the YS-X6 electronics. Keep us abreast of your build. I really like the simplicity but beefiness of the vulcan look.

What i like about the vulcan multirotorframes is that you can change the config like you can build from a quad up to a octa with the same centre plate.

My conversation with Zero UAV about upgrade YS-X6 for stedi gimbal.

Quote:
Hello,
I would like upgrade my SY-X6 system for steady gimbal, I use mini650 frame.
I guess I will need one extra IMU and gimbal firmware?
What cost of the upgrade?
Quote:
I'm the sale of Zero UAV, thank you for paying attention to YS-X6 and Zero Steadi470.

As Steadi470 is an entire system and a ready to fly solution, so we sell it as a package and can't be single. For you old customers who has purchased YS-X6, you can just send back your MC and IMU, so we can upgrade it to the Steadi version, and we package it as an entire system, what you will receive is as below:

Send back IMU&MC and reset up entire system:
1 Airframe×1
2 Camera Gimbal×1
3 Motor×4
4 ECS×4
5 Propeller×4
6 Servo×27 Flight
7 Steadi470IMU

The upgraded MC and IMU can also be used as common flight controller.
The cost is USD1105.
Quote:
Thank you for you quick response Cherry.

I really don't need your ECILOP airframe with motors and etc. I already have it. All I want another IMU and new firmware for stedi gimbal.
That's not fair to offer your customers a complete system only for double more money.

You ask for upgrade $1105 ???
The complete stedi470 system cost $ 1,746.00 only.

I spent on YS-X6 $1,033.00
if I add $1105 for upgrade, I will get the stedi470 for $2,138.00 ????

If you want offer a complete systems to your old customers, you should offer upgrade for $750 or even less.

Sincerely,
Artem Arestov
I this case, I would better sale my YS-X6 system and buy a complete upgraded stedi470 copter ((

Solar Storms


Recently there have been a few unexplained things happening with various systems (YS-X6, DJI and others), when in GPS position hold mode, which has resulted in a number of crashes.

MK have a web page dedicated to this subject http://www.mikrokopter.de/ucwiki/en/SunStorm and here is a small extract.

"The Kopter cannot hold i.e. with the function PositionHold the exact position or fly to a different point with the function ComingHome or execute different other GPS-based function without any error.

To see the GPS behavior during a solar storm the Kopter was placed in an open meadow and been not moved.
The received satellite data showed now no precise position. By the incorrectly transmitted data through the satellite the GPS on the Kopter thought, that the Kopter moves.
And that with ~10m/s in a radius of ~64mtr!"

So, my advice is to keep and eye on this http://www.n3kl.org/sun/images/noaa_kp_3d.gif? and when it is green, it should be safe to fly.

Rob
