i think there will always be a slight variance, i think its gonna be better for fpv then non height hold setups. but its natural that you may need some throttle inputs if your gonna do some "fast" FF

"Gain" means amplification or attenuation of signal.

a gyro's signal is how much it's rotating.

The result is as you turn the "gain" up on a rate only gyro the quad will begin to fight harder to keep the p/r straight when it is being blown around.

Are you saying your KK board puts the NAZA to shame in manual mode? Just wondering. If so why do you think that is?

So I get it to the altitude I want and place the throttle to 50% and it should hold there?

Do you guys take off in attitude mode or do you take off in manual and switch to attitude?

My PARIS board always moves quite a bit when switching modes in flight, my CC board handles that transition seamlessly but I haven't tried it with the NAZA.

1. So far, I havent been able to "sport" fly well with manual mode. My KK
quad with 4.7 firmware is much smoother and easier to fly. Why? I
dont know. Perhaps I can tune it better, but atti. mode works very
well for me. Manual is just too unstable to fly well. This is my personal
observation, so far. Others may have had better luck.

2. Atti. mode, throttle at 50%, your machine should hold altitude pretty well, as long as
you have your gains adjusted well. It can drift though, don't confuse the actions.

3. take off and land in "atti". Intelligent cutoff. Imediate cutoff is
detrimental to your machines' well being, because it WILL let it fall from
the sky if you arent careful.

4. The transition from manual to atti is pretty seamless unless you have the
throttle stick in an extreme position.


I should clarify that I think this flight controller works very well, and I am quite happy with it. I let my 8 year old daughter fly it and she was thrilled.
I let another friend fly it who had no RC flight experience, and he whipped it around quite well. His remarks were, "Oh wow. I want one. Bad."

Question on set up with a Mac.
Has anyone succeeded in doing the set up with Parallels or Boot Camp? While I'm sure either of these will open and run the set up software I am concerned about the USB interface. I tried to use Parallels a while ago to program Castle Creations ESCs and although the software ran I could not get it to recognize the USB device.
