I decided to convert my Everycopter flat hex into another Y6. The flat hex didn't really achieve what I wanted it to & it never flew as well as the first Y6 I built.

This time I used three of my circular Everycopter hub plates & a 3D printed fairing to produce a larger semi-enclosed electronics area & to give a larger flat surface on top for attaching payloads to. I realised that for flexibility when it comes to mounting payloads, a 15mm camera rail system was a convenient (if slightly heavy) option, especially as my Everycopter battery plates already have 1/4" mounting holes so the rail clamps just bolted straight on.

I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
