Just came back in from my first flight of my 3DR Y6, and I am happy to report 3 consecutive successful flights. To be honest, it was not the first attempt (I tried that in Panama before I moved to Costa Rica, and it was a failure due to a bad ESC that 3DR replaced free of charge). I am getting close to 10 minutes of flight time (I am starting to land with 40% of the battery left) with no gimbal yet (was really windy also). I tried to do the auto tune, but it was too windy, and I cpuld not finish the process, but the copter was easy to control. GPS features also worked perfectly well ( loiter and RTL were the ones I tested so far).
I still need to find a gimbal for it (I am thinking a 3 axis one for the gopro) and also a BEC to feed both the video transmitter and the video switcher (any recommendations for these 2?). I am also considering getting a couple of these batteries, as they add 10% more power with 18 grams LESS of weightthan the 3DR ones, but those will have to wait until I am done with the gimbal...
Anyway, I am reañly excited with this drone. I may just have to stick my sony actioncam on it until I get the gimbal installed!
