Pixhawk reading 0V

Hi, guys.  I know the 3DR Y6 is not as popular as it used to be, but I still need some help.  I recently dusted off my Y6 and started using it again.  I even installed a new Hero4 for 4K video with a new lens (to get rid of the fisheye effect)...

OK, a bit of background first.

My 3DR Y6 had been sitting in the attic for a couple of years, so I dusted it off and got it back in the air.  I still need to tune it, but I flew it first in front of my house (just hovering), and then decided to take i

Sudden loss of power

My wife wanted to take a look at the ceiling of my house, and I figured this would be a good job for the Y6, especially considering that I had just finished installing the STorM32 controller on my DYS gimbal.  So, I took off, changed into LOITER mode

So, which gimbal to get?

Zenhuse 3d

DYS Smart3

Walkera G-3D

Quanum Q-3D

Xcam A10-3H

Feiyu Tech FY-G3 3-Axis

Issues with YAW

So, I took the Y6 out for a spin this weekend, and i am now having some issues with the Y6 keeping steady on the yaw axis.  It is actually wondering, and the rudder stick input is not correcting enough.  Any ideas as to what it may be?  I already rec

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 th
