    Thanks man 🙂

    Been having very hot motors (brotherhobby 3100kc 1507 6S) tried out the same PID. Filtering settings would help ?

      first off, too high of KV. 6s needs 2700-2800kv. Second, these PIDs are for a 4s build and not ideal for a 6s build. Id lower these pids 10-20% for 6s. Also put a motor output limit at 90. That will make your motors output just like a 2800kv motor on 6s.

    What dose having the 200 in feedfoward due in your pids tuning. I used the pids for a similar quad but i am still getting low throttle jello. Trying to figure out the root cause. Thanks and great video/content

    Curious if you do any throttle clipping? I cannot stay within a 10ft elevation with my drone. I was inspired by your shots from this drone and knew I needed this thing, but its a testament to how good of a pilot you are. My shots are continuously bobbing up and down.

    I did try to use some exponent to flatten the throttle curve but led to a real lagging senario which then caused overshoots when you really needed the reaction.

    Great content man!
