Scorpion Y6 copter FY91Q - Hold position and RTH, but

Just been testing this "new" copter.

 

 

 

Good

Stable flying

Easy to build

PnP no need for installing code

Can be finetuned via software, but has 3 knobs to adjust gain in field.

 

Bad

ESC: Got problem starting the BL motor, but when motor are running it's pretty powerfull. (Need slow startup)

Navigation mode: (hold position and RTH) need more testing. Not working very well.

Some drift: (maybe better prop or balancing motor/prop could help)

 

All in all: Nice little Y copter. The FY91Q can easily be intergrated in much bigger frame with bigger motor /ESC or be used in other configuration (like X frame).

Need for work with the RTH or Hold position function, too early for me to say it's rock solid.

Nice smooth run.

What about the battery size and the max air time yet?

Love the copter frame stucture.

Look sturdy with less air resistance between the props.

The battery is 3S 2200 mAh Lipo Turnegy 20C and Rino / about 7-10min flying.

Can take bigger battery.
