"Staying at low power, then shooting upward as you pass mid throttle sounds like typical behavior in alt hold mode. You are requesting higher, and it throttles up suddenly to go from not flying to flying and climbing. What flight mode were you…"
"The Y6 uses an autopilot system called Pixhawk, which uses Arducopter firmware. Pixhawk is very similar to the ArduPilotMega, or APM flight controller/autopilot. So, any programming or testing you need to do will be covered in instructions for…"
"The center of gravity should end up at the center of the three arms. If you draw a straight line along the center of each arm, you can find the intersection of those three lines. I took a silver paint pen and put a tiny dot at that point on the…"
"Well, I think the term male and female gets ambiguous with these particular connectors. On my batteries from 3DR, the connector on the battery has a yellow plastic portion that fits inside the yellow plastic connector on the current sensor.…"
"The quad being in another place on MP would not have anything to do with the compass. That position is governed by the GPS. If it is in the right place, but facing the wrong direction, that would be a compass issue, potentially. The quad being in…"
"I do not. I believe compass calibration shouldn't have to be changed unless perhaps if you travel to a different launch location that is very far away from where you first did it. I have calibrated my machine in East Texas and taken it to New…"
"You know, in all of the discussion going on here, I forgot about my very first Y6 flight.
When I got the machine, and finally got the "RTF" fixed so it really might actualy fly (GPS in the wrong port, and so on), I decided I needed to test it…"
"Another way to do something like this would be to use gas engines. There is a racing quad that uses one gas engine and four variable pitch props. That is probably something that would scale up nicely. The problem with scaling up a normal quad or x8…"
