Naze32 Q's

Currently building myself another quad. I'm putting a little more money in this one since I can actually fly now. The Naze32 controllers caught my interest because they are small, but also pretty accurate gyro wise.

I'm looking at this one: http://abusemark.com/store/index.php...products_id=30

Currently, I use a Crius board. Since the naze32 doesn't use MW code, is the firmware that is used just as easy to navigate? Also what are the significant differences I'll see over the Crius (aside from physical size and gyro accuracy).


Thanks!

I guess there are probably no answers because all this info is either in the wiki or in the afro thread... to ME the advantage is a platform I can develop/debug on properly,

to users I guess:
1) no need to edit/compile/upload firmware to make silly changes like motor mixer or reverse tri servo or switch between PPM and regular RX etc
2) hardware pwm input/output.. no jitter on RC input, 1000+ steps of resolution on output. Combined with proper esc (simonk, esc32, etc), much better stability/response.
3) (and I'm gonna get a lot of hate for this one) platform with at least some future unlike the dead 8bit atmel horse

What is the differences between the Naze32 and NAZA if the end user does not have the resources or means to modify and compile their own firmware? Hmmm.

Exactly the guy whose valuable input I've been waiting for in this thread. Tell 'em like it is.
To answer your question,
1) arm-gcc
2) type make
3) done.
wow, that was hard! Almost as hard as downloading tarduino IDE and JAVA.

But to get back ON TOPIC, if MWC-SE works for you, by all means do NOT get anything else. You're not doing me or anyone else any favors by using their hardware. And software is all opensauce, unlike mr. ritchie here implies

Whenever I finish wading through the pile of material that is the Output.pde.
Or whenever YOU submit a PROPERLY INDENTED patch, following proper coding style, with all parameters properly configurable via cli/etc.

Honestly though I don't think there's much to salvage from Output.pde, its better to just write it from scratch, which is kind of what I'm going to do whenever I get some free time to do it.

I am not going to submit anything because of the nature of the attitudes. I will stick with what works.

After seeing your last attempt I'd have to fully agree.

The problem from where I sit is, if things does not meet the Almighty TC standard, then it gets bashed. that drives people aka customers and programming help away.

A software project without proper indentation/coding style is doomed to eventually turn into the same kind of mess 8bit MWC is in right now. There's no "almighty tc standard". It's called K&R, you might wanna look it up.
