How to configure a Naza Lite + GPS

by ArchiCopters | March 29, 2014 | (0) Posted in How To

Hello! I have done a video-tutorial about how to configure a Naza Lite + GPS in Spanish.

English Transcription of the tutorial below.


Hola a todos!

He hecho un vídeo-tutorial en castellano de cómo instalar y configurar una controladora DJI Naza-M, en éste caso la versión Lite. Espero que os sea de utilidad para que la podáis disfrutar rápido y sin quebraderos de cabeza! Jeje

En el tutorial explico cómo conectarla al receptor y a la VU, cómo debe estar configurada la emisora, la programación con el Asistente y el montaje en el multicóptero. Intentaré hacer más adelante un vídeo de cómo calibrar los sensores y las ganancias. Comprueba en mi canal por si ya está allí.

 Es mi primer tutorial, La verdad es que me resulta muy raro escuchar mi voz, jeje. 

 Si os gusta, agradecédmelo suscribiéndoos a mi canal de Youtube! :D 

Un saludo!

English Transcription:

You have the links on the description for the assistant, the drivers and the manual.

Let’s go!

1º Configure your transmitter into plane or acro mode. (Do not use dual rates)

2º Connect you receiver to the Naza as seen on the schema (it is different if you have a Futaba or a JR module)

3º Connect te VU (Versatility Unit) and rhe GPS

4º Connect the VU to your distribution board.

5º Connect a battery. When its blinking in orange o looking for satellite signal, it’s time to connect it to the computer.

6º If you have it installed on your multirotor, don't forget to remove your propellers or disconnect the motors before connect it!

7º Open the assistant. There are several slaps, in MOUNTING, they recommend us to place the Naza as close as we can to the Gravity Center. Here we have to tell the Naza were we have our GPS antenna.

MOTOR MIXER: Here you can choose the multirotor you are going to use.

9º TX Cali (TX MONITOR). First, choose the type of module that you have. Cut off type: Its important to put it on Intelligent, for security reasons. Command Sticks Calibration: Make sure them are moving like in the video. Start calibration, move the sticks in circles. Click Finish and all of them have to be in the middle in green (throttle also in 50%). If there are Aux channels connected to X1 and X2, check their movements. Control Mode Switch: Choose in your transmitter a three positions switch, and assign the positions to the modes. To change into Fail-Safe mode, I have made a mix on my transmitter (graphic), and I can choose this mode every time I want.

10º AUTOPILOT: The better way is to configure it on the air. Change the Basic Gains to be controlled by X1 and the Attitude Gains by X2. In next video I am going to explain who to configure it. Check mi youtube channel for it. Fail safe: choose the behavior between land or go to home and land. Here you can also configure the Intelligent Orientation Control

11º GIMBAL: Here you control the gains, speeds and limits.

12º VOLTAGE MONTOR: Set the type of battery that you are using. The led are going to blink in yellow or in red depending of the voltage of the battery. You can change this values.

13º Push WRITE to save all on the board.


Cover the Naza with black tape to avoid the sun, it can cause errors on the barometer.

Place the board over a soft surface. I like to fix the receiver and the VU with adhesive Velcro.

Remember that the GPS red arrow have to point the nose of the aircraft!

In next video I explain the calibration of the sensors and the configuration of the Gains.

I hope that if you like it thank me subscribing to my Youtube Channel.

Nice work! I think there was missing some one to take a tutorial in Spanish, I m sure there might be others out there, but have not found them! Its also rare for me so hear Spanish from Spain I suppose! but GREAT WORK! keep it up and I m sure tons of people will appreciate your work/tutorials!
Fly Safe!

Excelente trabajo! Creo yo que si ah faltado algunos manuales en vídeo en español para la gente que no entiende mucho en ingles! me sorprende no encontrar muchos vídeos en el idioma ya que hay mucha gente que también vuela y no mastican nada de español! Continua el excelente trabajo estoy seguro que muchos te lo agradecerán!
Vuela a salvo!
