    Hi All,

    I am brand new to Y6 - multirotor type of drones with a Spektrum DX8 radio. I started out with a Phantom 3 Pro which I still enjoy today and whenever possible I still make Pictures and videos - depending on my location and the restrictions we experience today. - However, i have very recently purchased a Y6 unit with a DX8 radio - man .... this eagle makes my Phantom bird look like a "Plug & Play" unit. for this reason, I am now seeking best assistance in getting to not only understand this unit - but to program the units so that I can safely take it to the skies without any fear of a crash or fly-away condition.

    Detail of the unit.
    6xKV710 motors - (T-Motors)
    Wookong control board. and psu.
    Spektrum AR 8000 unit.
    and the radio is the Spektrum DX8.

    What I would love to learn - How to program and set up both the radio as well as the unit - best for beginners.
    Understanding the use and setting of Trims-Curves-Switches etc.
    Importantly the setup and testing of the fail safe as well as the Return to Home feature (how to use) + GPS
    Throttle setting and understanding thereof
    I need not only to know that the unit is safe to fly but also that I can get it back and safely land the unit.
    Share setup file with other members.

    Hope to hear from some-one in the not too distant future.
    Greetings from Cape Town - South Africa.
    Please stay safe.
