Y6B on 2013 Y6

Have any 2013 Y6'ers converted to the Y6B prop config? I'm wondering if it's been tested with APM 2.x or just PX4 and what sort of efficiency gains there might be. Looked at it last night but it…Continue

Kyosho Zeal Vibration Absorption Sheet Z8006

I cut 4 squares and mounted the APM to the frame.  The APM is on there solid and minimizes vibration.  YOU CANNOT GO WRONG WITH THIS.

What are the best mounting tape/foam or method for mounting a pixhawk? (Mounted it backwards at first with the original foam squares).

Pretty sure cloverleaf antennas on 433 or 915mhz is not the best option. For 433, you should use a Dipole or a Monople like the one linked below[1].

The antenna in the pic looks like a 5.8ghz antenna, which will probably perform horribly if it's plugged into a 433 or 915mhz tx.

I am a documentary photographer, I prefer to use damping to obtain subjective images. Gimbal will bring another kind of vision, need to more load.

Finally got my Y6 setup to fly Mission planner.  This is the short version.

To mount the gimbal shown below I printed a small bracket but it's probably easier to just bend up a bit of ali or similar...

Comment by Brendan22 on February 3, 2014 at 7:22pm

I managed to attach my Tarot gimbal to the top plate using the (more recent) Tarot anti-vibration mount.  There's just enough room so the gimbal "floats" without touching anything...
