When flying Simple mode, I notice it seems to work ok, until I adjust the yaw angle..then it becomes unstable, wants to yaw left and right until it is not flyable. You have to bring her down at that…Continue

Martin Szymanski replied to Shawn's discussion I2C Esc?
"Being the I2C has a high impedance it will be neat to see how some conquer adjacent interferences. I do like is the idea to have less latency with needed control response with a very small light copter.  "

"I am fairly decent at flying nose-in and flying with good orientation in most attitudes.. For me simple mode (which i tested today with 2.0.34) was rather difficult for me to fly UNTIL forcing myself to stop trying to fly the nose.   Once i…"

"Tried new code with Simple mode...it was all over the place with yaw...and as I continued to fly, it actually got worse, until I could not figure out which way was forward at all.  "

"2.0.31   What concerns me with letting it spin, is that I'm not confident in the aircraft yet, and its not comforting hovering the copter whilst its spin being totally reliant on the APM to translate stick direction into the right amount…"

"I find the copter difficult to control in simple mode. It starts a constant yaw in simple mode."

"Ok, so if you change the yaw angle, it should not try to yaw back to the starting orientation then?  "
