Bad GPS navigation

I did a small test mission last weekend and found the GPS navigation accuracy was quite poor. I've attached a screenshot showing the actual path taken compared to the WP path it should have followed…Continue

New firmware update completely messed up any connection possibility with Y6 anyone know where to get last version of APM Planner?

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...

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...
