I am running a Y-6 set up.
I have had no trouble flying it but have come across a couple of problems.
The first I have a suspicion is my batteries but may be some other system issue.
I have found after about 5 minutes of flight (in most circumstances) that I seem to lose the ability to throttle, my throttle is moved to 90% or greater to try and keep it in the air and as I am trying to get it down it begins a fall.
I am hoping, as I have said, this is just a bad few batteries (easy solution) but if anyone has any thoughts I would appreciate your feedback.
I have placed 2 flight logs here:
as well as attached them to this thread.
I have ordered new batteries but to know that this is or isn't the issue rather than just throwing it back up in the air would be nicer for my brain.
The second issue is concerning programmed flight paths.
I have found with both my APM 2.5 and my 2.6 that when I flip the switch into AUTO begins to fly the opposite direction to what has been programmed. Both systems this happens with.
In the flight log #37 I execute the AUTO mode several times. Unfortunately as it starts going in the wrong direction, I am quick to flip it back into either loiter or stabilise due to paranoia (trees on my boundaries etc)..
The last time I let it execute in that log I let it play out for a few more seconds of flight.
I don't know. I can look at the logs, but I am unable to see faults as such.
In general, I find it to be a very stable system. I have been tuning the mechanics of it to get nice smooth video, now I am hoping (after nearly bad crash) to tidy up the bugs I have.
I am constantly surprised by how solid the 3DR design is.
I would appreciate any feedback.
