    Howdy. Got a used Y6 from a friend of a friend. Two newbie questions:

    * How come there is not a Y6 forum the way there is for the X8?
    * Can someone please tell me the best place to find Y6 parts? A 3DR page lists various kits (DIY & Parts – 3DR Support) but offers no way to order them.

    Thanks!

    Sup TolaMarts,

    I've wondered the same about why there is no Y6 - guess just not hip and cool enough.

    So what we have is a legacy system by 3DR - they dismissed all this stuff for focus on Solo a little over a year ago. There was a massive liquidation sale of everything from RTF systems to DIY kits to batteries to booms to motors. After the stock went dry, that was it. They have no more parts to sell or support the existing users, as far as I'm aware.

    I picked up two DIY Y6 kits, one so that I'd have spare parts.

    Prob the only way to find parts is on classifieds somewhere - here, RCG, DIYDrones. Post a wanted ad, you'll likely get a response.

    On a positive note, many of th parts from the Y6, like booms, motor mounts, spacers and screws, ESCs, are identical on the Quad and X8, so there should be a lot floating around.

    Lemme know via PM if you're searching for anything specific, I've got a pretty decent stash from their stupid big sale.
