1 First I tried playing with PID but inmediatly saw it wasn´t a PID problem.
2 Then I review a blackbox log to ensure the vibration was on yaw axis at 1350 throttle value.
3 I change the notch filter to try overcome the vibrations.. not succes.
4 I added on cli yaw_lowpass = 10 and was little bit better.
5 I figure out that the esc are this one

hey guys, yeah i just made a new topic about this quad, best to delete my topic . i have seen this aswell, and it got my interest. hope to see that they fix the little issues, with for example the camera, so that you can get to it better. but this quad looks amazing

some questions about the quad, do you know the target for the flight controller to update betaflight? Can you configurate the OSD to show you the mah consumed? and the last one Do you know if the esc will be compatible with the new protocol dshoot? Dshoot seem far better than multishoot. thanks folks

Based on Joshua Bradwell's video BLHeli_S supports Dshot so the ESCs will support it.

I cannot get that 18% discount to work...says not allowed for this item.

My account would not allow.... so opened new account and it worked. Would not work with already on sale DSMX at $259.... only with the FRSKY or FUTABA versions showing $301... then discounted with code to $247.

tnx Nitbeat,
i got her on the table wright now
and she looks amazing
the only problem i got wright now, is that i can't
seem to bind her, or i got something wrong in the settings
but i tried to see if i see anything in betaflight. but it all looks ok
a red led on top keeps flashing, and a green led in front is solid.
after a couple of flashes from the blue led next to it.
through my goggles i see that she is disarmed, but i didnt even install the lock and unlock
what i have done, is put a firmware on my taranis to get d8 mode
because i got the qx90 wich needed that, could that be the problem.
i tried binding it with d16 and d8 but nothing helped.
hope someone here can help me
best regards Raver

euro or international

when you order at Gearbest,
do you get the international firmware on the frsky receiver
i got a euro taranis, although i flashed it, so that i can bind with D8
but maybe it is still euro so is there a possibility that that could be the problem?

i still can't bind with my shuriken x1
what i do see is, that the red led on the receiver keeps flashing
but when i try to bind it stays red and another green.
in the manual it says that the led needs to flash and then you are in bind mode
is there someone here who got some info please?

thanks in advance
