"You can encode telemetry into one channel of your audio stream, thats what a lot of antenna trackers do. The point of an antenna tracker is that you wont ever loose video because it should outrun your planes range."

"Also they wouldnt be on the same axis, causing weird accelerations diff's between the two.. It would just get messy. Its much better to just have a stab loop without an imax that can correct for a down'd motor."

Y6 Pulso 2820/14's with 13x6 APC electrics

Posted on November 20, 2011 at 10:30am 7 Comments

Alright guys, here's the big heavy lift y6 I have been working on for almost 2 months now! I had it flying perfectly until a crash involving some motor troubles but now that is all sorted out now. I have re-routed the wires through the arms, stepping down the gauge significantly to do so.
