As we all know, video jitter is one of the biggest difficulties to overcome when dealing with aerial photography. The ZERO-Steadi470 (Quad) is an excellent aerial photography system designed specifically to overcome these difficulties - providing ultra-smooth, professional quality video performance! This is all made possible by the combination of Zero UAV's purpose-built quadcopter frame featuring the "Stedicam Structure Gimbal" and the high performance YS-X6 autopilot flight control system.
The ZeroUAV YS-X6 autopilot is a tremendous flight controller system for multi-rotor aircraft supporting Android/IOS and PC systems, providing excellent auto-navigation,
target lock, self-leveling and position/altitude holding. It is designed for both
professional and hobby applications in commercial and industrial platforms. YS-X6 adopts ARM+FPGA classic structure, integrates high-precision sensor elements, applies advanced temperature compensation & industrial attitude arithmetic and features an ultra-fast 400Hz refresh rate to make the system more stable, efficient and reliable.
Featuring a robust design with military rank hardware and a rich expansion interface to offer future upgrades, the YS-X6 means business! ZeroUAV has been deeply involved in UAV for more than 7 years and their UAV controller is the standard device for the China National Mapping Bureau. This system is the real deal!
Unlike the competition, the YS-X6 offers 4 way points as standard, 8 channels for ESCs, 3 channels for pan-tilt, 8 channels for radio RX, supports S.BUS, and provides 3 communication ports. It's a totally versatile flight controller and autopilot device that can't be beat!
Ultra precise altitude and GPS position hold
The YS-X6M offers unbeatable, high precision altitude and GPS position holding making your multi-rotor flight safe and worry free. Now, you can forget about flying and focus solely on getting the best aerial shots using your onboard camera.
Ground station based on IOS and Android
YS-X6 is equipped with a WIFI module to connect to your ground station. You can use any Android or IOS based smartphone or tablet to control all the features of your multi-rotor's autonomous flight.
Auto take-off and landing
Anyone can fly multi-rotors safely now using the supplied, easy to use touch, click, drag and go Flight Controls in the supplied GCS software that runs on your smartphone. With this feature, your phone is all you need to fly your multirotor with strong Altitude Hold, GPS Position hold, Return to Home and Auto-Landing features.
Click and go
Click any point on the Google Earth map on your ground station based smartphone or tablet and the YS-X6 will get your multi-rotor there.
With a GPS enabled mobile phone or any other IOS or Android GPS enabled device, YS-X6 can track the device and allow your multi-rotor follow it. Now if the device is in your pocket, you can keep your multi-rotor following you in the air like a faithful puppy.
