"OK so smallish update. I found that all of the bullet connectors had dry joints and one of them was so dry, the wire pulled right out of the bullet... no wonder it was temperamental!

"OK so that still could be the case. Basically. If it is a dry solder joint (which looks likely) on one of the output connections, only two of the channels will be driving (as opposed to all 3). If this happens, the two channels will be pulling the…"

"I've been flying it a bit. It works really well. I've been impressed with the AR Drone 2.0's capabilities with GPS. In generally the AR Drone "works" and even handles wind well.

Hey guys,Has anyone played around with lightening the arms on the 3DR Y6? My build came out a little heavy from the recommended weight so I was looking at ways to slim it down without effecting structural integrity too much.One idea I had was to…
"Quick update. This morning I swapped over the ESCs that were driving the motors (top ESC connected to bottom and vice-versa). I tested the motors again... hey presto! Everything is now working as expected. I've not reversed the servo connections on…"

I just had to re-calibrate all…"
