    With all else being equal, a hexa should have more lift and also be the most stable one. The reason is that with a Y6 the bottom propellers has to work in the down wash of the upper ones, reducing efficiency. And you get better stability because when you think about it, having six separate points of stabilization around a circle, is obviously better then three points.
