Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Had another negative encounter, it's been a few years since the last one, just an uneducated ******, going on about drones being illegal yada yada yada.    :-/
Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

dji naza lipo settings

I have a DJI naza M and plan to try and get out on Sunday -  ~~

I have a couple of turnigy 2200 3S lipo';s, last time I flew I found the spider would not climb because the lipo capacity was too low, i';m looking for basic settings so I can run off a couple of lipo packs (no six pack available ;-)  )

Appreciate the help, i';m trying to get motivated to fly, keep spending the budget on other projects  :wack0

i turned the voltage monitor off.


I made a simple Y connector to join two LiPos it worked perfectly, the advice I was given was. Measure each cell to ensure they are very close to equal charge, measure both batteries to ensure near enough same voltage ( if the cells were the same then the voltage would be the same  :laugh:   ) join them on the Y connector then connect to the Quad. It works very well but you have to be on top of the voltages before you connect them just in case you connect a charged one to a flat one.

The weather aint the issue - its my motivation, been coughing and spluttering very badly all week  :sick:

Disable the naza power monitor and buy a lipo buzzer which connects to the balance lead of any lipo battery.

+1 on not using the naza power monitor. 

It';s not that reliable and changes depending on the temp too, so it could just start to slowly land when you think you got more time.

A lipo alarm that';s already been suggested is much better, and a timer on your TX

Smeagol

I bought a few of the small battery alarms, and I do use one on the quad for flying so i';ll disable the naza monitor then.

I have NO idea how long the battery time will be, so i';ll time from start to when the alarm triggers and then check the battery cell levels.

I found the Naza habit of landing when it detected low voltage without any ability to control it was very dodgy and caused me a couple of butt clenching events! As I was told, better to risk £20 of lipo by running it a bit close to minimum but keep control of a £1000 multi! Don';t ignore the buzzer though!

Didn';t get out on Sunday, but did take the time to update the naza and software, and switch off the battery monitor.

I thought I read somewhere on here that there were waypoints now added to the Naza M firmware  :huh

Correction. You need the Apple groundstation app and the 2.4 datalink to get this to work. I misread things as well!! :angry:

I was fooled by that, but I think you need one of these: http://www.dji.com/dji-released-2-4g-bluetooth-datalink-ipad-ground-station/

Correct! now I read it properly.  :angry: I updated my earlier post! Confusing.  :frantic:

The parameter adjustment in flight will be good (when Android version arrives) so you can see immediate effect!

Ho hum, finally got my mini iOSD to install... :smiley:

Thanks for the info, makes sense now - spend more money  :tongue:

Yeah, the voltage monitor is crap!  Don';t know what i';d do without an osd these days.  I did use the tm1000 telem. Module, which was useful, but not a lot of use with fpv goggles.  :-/

At least with the telemetry module, even if you can';t see the display the Tx warns you with buzzer and vibrate.  Makes me jump every time it goes off!!!
