I spent hours and hours on this FC and I have finally given up. Life is just too short !. I fitted Afro's first. I could get these to arm but there was a dead zone between 10-20% on the throttle. No amount of different firmware or calibrations would get rid of it. Then I tried Hobbyking blue series ESC's. Known to have worked for other people. No matter what I did, I couldn't get these to arm. Then I tried a qbrain. These would work on anything wouldn't they ? They armed but I couldn't get the throttle range to work consistently. So I changed the Radio and receiver and tried all the above combinations again. Finally back to the afros and SBUS on the receiver, mildly better on the throttle dead zone. So I thought I would at least try a test flight. When I did attempt a flight the led went out and stayed out as soon as the ESC's were armed, then returned when disarmed. I have been a UK CAA qualified UAV pilot for 3 years, and building configuring multicopters for many more years before that..... and my senses tell me that unless all looks and feels correct, don't fly. So I didn't !. In conclusion I would say that this is a firmware problem (which I did update). I believe the basic hardware is of good quality but there is a definite problem with the firmware in so much as there are huge incompatibility issues. Nice try JIYI, but by the look of the reduced support for the P2, its about to be discontinued.I am happy with this F.C. works well on my v700 quad gps hold is solid and all modes work well it is a nice and easy F.C. to setup and the software is easy to use the manual is well written and easy to understand and I got it on sale for 70$ which was a great deal for this well made F.C. Buy it worth every pennyAn excellent flight controller when you know what to combine with. Not compatible with many esc's. Works very smoothly with the HobbyKing BlueSeries brushless speed controller. I bought a lot of these FC's, and had a problem with 2-3 of them (mostly with the channel 3). When everything is done properly, it is very stable and safe to fly. I have tested RTH compared to Naza, and is even more precise.dont waste your money , I bought 3 and try 1 , its cant be arm , and ch6 are unfuncion, I will try 2 last , I hope it can work normaly , I am disapointed , about QC from Hobbyking , its bad .....dont waste your money , I bought 3 and try 1 , its cant be arm , and ch6 are unfuncion, I will try 2 last , I hope it can work normaly , I am disapointed , about QC from Hobbyking , its bad .Bought 4 units and 2x have problem, Jiyi got QC issue. HK want me to sent back to warehouse will cost me more then 50pcnt of the unit cost since i bought it at offer prices. So i choose to bin it. that bad luck for me and no more taking risk with Jiyi.....Great flight controller, especially for simple stabilize mode and hovers / gps. Can do sport mode (I understand it might be acro). Great aluminum box. Software not as good as DJI and can be refined abit more, but for the price is great and performance great do compare with Jiyi P2 Pro, that one offers better hover and can connect to GCS (Android). Like my P2 Pro review, you may have to manually callibrate the ESCs as there is no step in the software to do this, but is just basic plug the ESC servo leads directly to the Receiver and calibrate using throttle stick.I only knocked the Quality score due to a bad GPS puck that HobbyKing resolved today. Otherwise, I have this FC installed in a 500mm quad with a gimbal, 1.2Kg with battery. The P2 performed admirably well in good conditions on stock gains, though it got sloppy when windy until tuned. Now I can't believe the performance of this little FC. Did I mention it was only $46?
The look of the case is amazing, a real shame I have it sandwiched inside a frame. The power and combo LED/USB modules share the same CNC aluminum look, and are logically designed, incorporating little features - such as wires all exiting on the same side of the module - that made installation and troubleshooting easy. The OSD system from Jiyi is compatible with this FC, and together they rival my DJI Naza M V2 for GPS and attitude stability, as well as RTH peace of mind. For a sixth of the price. 1/6. That's six of these, for one of those - oh never mind you get it.
The GUI, I have to be honest, is not great. It is not perfect, in that the language used throughout is Google-Translate worthy, and there is no clear understanding in how to update firmware, (launch the P2uploader.exe that comes with the GUI, point at the downloaded Bin file from Jiyi). Get past that, though, and you have the features you need, at a price that is unheard of.hI,
gOT THE PRODUCT AND AFTER 4 DAYS OF TRYING TO SET IT UP I GAVE UP. Too many issue with quality. I had to solder black wire in gps and as well my aileron channel doesnt work. I cant trust this brand.....After trying numerous times to contact JIYI Support and HobbyKing for support with no success, here is my honest review. It powers up, it connects to the assistant software and that's it. Whilst it looks nice, it's currently useless. I'd love some support regarding this issue? anyone got any ideas?
Time will tell, otherwise, heed this warning, don't waste your money.
