I have an odd question, and searching didn't yield any results (here or on YT). Is there by any chance an alternate method to arm the Evo I motors (other than diagonal in or out)? I only ask because I recently installed a 3d printed Yaw control (pic attached) and 9 times out of 10 the motors won't arm because the stick on the RC hits the "nubs"on the Yaw control, keeping them from going the maximum distance. If not, I might have to yank the thing off... Thanks all!

The only other way is pressing the launch button in the controller.

Or can't you recalibrate the controller with the adapter on? That should zero out the stick(s) when then hit the nub, making the new end point.

Thank you for that info! I will try that and report. Thank you much. Still getting a handle on the Evo I :)

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. What finally worked was re-calibrating the rc with the yaw control attached. Took two times to get everything to work correctly (for some reason right-stick moving backwards failed to work the first go round). I'm good to go for my next project... 👍🏾

Why did you make this yaw control? What benefit does it give you?

You could use the launch button on the controller or the one in the app (I think they have one in the app, not entirely sure since I never do anything other than bringing the sticks to the center)

I bought the Yaw control as an added way to give me more precise control. As much as I love the Evo I, the Yaw EXP doesn't allow for the level of configuration I personally need for the shots I take. With the 3d Printed Yaw Control, the left stick is pretty stiff/resistant, which aids in way better orbits, etc. A personal preference of course. My DJI's are all configured to death within the Go4App and my P4P's have sticks that extend, which aid in better Yaw control as well...

Thanks, but I tried that. The app says you have to arm the motors first. It's all good now, reconfigured the RC and everythings works as it should now. THANKS
