The naza is close, but it's not touching.

And I was planning to run the video TX out in the tail.

Also, the VU? LED is actually protruding out of a hole in the chassis. So it is visable.

Build looks pretty good.

One thing I would be careful about.
If you plan on actually flying with the park flyer rx I would at a minimum get it into a better more central location on the quad. Also be aware afaik that specific rx does not support the correct failsafe mode required to failsafe the naza fc if there is a loss of radio signal. While that rx does have a failsafe mode it is not what spektrum calls preset failsafe which is what you want for the naza fc.

How does my wiring look?

Keep in mind that I need to mount the RX still, and shrink wrap those solders.


That's where I put my Naza controller...works fine. I'd recommend putting the VU in a better spot to see the LED. You'll want to see the LED status during initialization and while flying. With it pointed straight down you'll loose that visibility. I mounted mine up on the front arm. Even on a back arm is better than you're current location.

Yes I'm aware that the RX doesn't have a fail safe compatible with the naza.
Could anyone piont me to a budget RX that will get the job done right?
From what I read, they start at the 7xxx series.

Also, I've now mounted the RX on the back arm.

I'm going to leave the VU where it is for now. I can see the LED just fine through the large opening on the bottom of the chassis. I'm just going to do a few test flights and find a safe time limit and always time my flights.


Here is a close up of the VU from the bottom. I think I'll be ok.

Doesn't look bad that video! Are you flying without OSD?

The Hobbyking orange 7 & 9 channel Rx are suppose to have failsafe on all channels, although I have not tested it yet personally.

I have one in them mail. I will report back

fwiw horizon is wrong about the AR8000 rx it does support both types of failsafes even though the manual states it differently.

Here's my HT-FPV frame after replacing the dead HFPro flight controller from my disastrous sunset flight

Thanks to Adidas, he got an old HFPro board for cheap with a non working OSD. Which is fine with me as long as it flies! I love how smooth they fly. But since the green boards are a different layout from my black board I could no longer use that big red protective case. So I used the OEM protective cover that came with the HT FPV kit. There weren't any holes where I wanted the board so I used the cover and dropped the board from that

NTM 1200Kv Motors
9x4.7 APC Props
Turnigy Plush 25amp ESCs
Hoverfly Pro v1 Green board with non-functional OSD
EzUHF Rx with Sander style antennas
EzOSD with GPS, RSSI
3000Mah Turnigy 3s nano Flight Battery
370Mah Turnigy 3s nano VTX battery
300Mw 1280MHz VTx
RMRC 600XV CCD FPV Camera
Frankenquad Landing gear (awesome)
HT-FPV frame, found a crack in the go pro plate but still seems sturdy enough. Not bad for a 200ft + free fall! Same APC props too!

1505g AUW - WOOHOO... that's about as light as I've ever had in an FPV quad since my Gaui 330x days!

I like them but they don't work well with 4s batteries. I was having timing misses with the escs causing a squeeling crash. Going back to 3s no problems at all!
