4S on 3DR Y6? over watt for motors?

Safe to use built in BEC within ESC?

Here's a noob question. Is it safe to use the BEC within one of the 6 ESC's I have to power a camera (gopro)? Will everything function OK if I remove the 5v lead from my ESC connecting to the PDB, leaving only the signal wire?

Here is the ESC I am usi

Y6 Loiter - Odd behavior (video)

I have to say overall I have great loiter performance with my Y6 - I did start to notice, though, that if I apply any yaw while in loiter mode, it begins to move out of position pretty aggresively. I was trying to tune this out but none of the YAW PI
