Quote from: eyeflying on Monday,October 15, 2012, 16:29:04 Hi Guys,I';m a newbie here but I just thought I';d mention that I';ve got a couple ZERO UAV Flight Controllers on their way over to me for testing. I';ll be installing one unit into a custom Hexacopter to see how it performs. If anyone';s interested, I';ll post a review and some vids when the kit arrives (should be some time this week)
Quote from: eyeflying on Sunday,October 21, 2012, 00:15:19 Got my YS-X6';s to play with - arrived a couple of days ago. I';m building a new Hex for the test as the X8 I was going to use is too small. The initial problem I';ve found with this kit is the rather large footprint of each unit. The IMU needs to be right in the centre of the copter - and this is quite big. Then you';ve got the main control box which is also large and then you';ve got to find a place for the wi-fi unit. And then finally, the GPS/Compass which you stick on a stalk like DJI - oh, and then there';s the LED unit.My initial advice would be make sure you';ve first got a big enough frame to take all this stuff - especially if you also want to add FPV camera and Tx.I reckon it';ll be a week or more before I can get to fly with this setup. My first observations after installing the phone control app for this, is that Zero UAV are missing an opportunity to really steal a lead on DJI. I don';t think they';re are making enough noise about this equipment';s features and potential - their video';s don';t do it justice (if it works, that is!!)
