Thanks.

I am having issues with Naza/PPM. Setting stick at first and work perfect after binding but not for long in assist. Gps/A/M go wonky in assist. After rebinding many time I think its solved then when flipping switch GPS/A/M go crazy again. Sticks wont calibrate and Naza crashes. Others are having problems with the combination also. (post 11)

Its not the radio settings,your guide is awesome!! New Naza PPM firmware or Dl receiver firmware is what I suspect is causing the issue.

Yeah, shoot. Looked at that thread and posted in it. Glad it's not my DL RX, but I sure with PPM worked correctly with the NAZA.

Since Naza supports the PPM channel ordering of Futaba and not DragonLink, neither my trusty old JR XP7202 or XP8103 could remap/reconfig the PPM channels. Which stinks because I love that XP7202. So, I had to go with a Turnigy TGY9x transmitter reflashed with the ER9x firmware. Which by the way ended up being incredibly versatile and robust. And, since the setup proved to be somewhat tricky I decided to post it up here...

a) In case someone else was trying to do the same thing.
b) For the selfish reason that I can find it if my black hole of a brain loses it.

1. Setup a new model and call it whatever you want. For this example we'll call it "Penguin". Why, because penguins kick a**.
2. Go into the model setup for the model you just created.
3. Right Scroll to "Templates" page (10/10).
4. Scroll down to "Channel Order" and change it to "AETR".
5. Scroll up to "01 Simple 4-CH" and press the menu button to accept it.
6. Left scroll to "Setup 01" page (2/10).
7. Change Proto PPM to "12CH 300uSec".
8. Change PPM FrLen to 22.5mSec (If it is not already set).
9. Go to the "Mixer" Page (5/10).
10. Channel 1-4 Should be 100% and respectively AIL,ELE,THR,RUD.
11. Scroll down to CH6 and create a new mix. Modify as follows.
- Source = FULL
- Weight = -100 (That is negative one hundred).
- Switch = ELE
12. Exit the mix for CH6 (Exit Button).
13. Scroll down to CH7 and create a new mix. Modify as follows.
- Source = FULL
- Weight = 0
- Switch = ID0
14. Exit the mix for CH7 (Exit Button).
15. Highlight CH7 and press "MENU" once, then the "DN" button to create a new sub-mix. Modify as follows.
- Source = FULL
- Weight = 50
- Switch = ID1
16. Exit the mix for CH7 submix 1 (Exit Button).
17. Highlight CH7 submix 1 and press "MENU" once, then the "DN" button to create a new sub-mix. Modify as follows.
- Source = FULL
- Weight = 100
- Offset = 55
- Switch = ID2
18. Right Scroll to "Safety Switches" page (9/10).
19. Scroll down to CH7 and press the "Menu" button to highlight the selection.
20. Change the values in columns 1 and 2 to the following.
- Column 1 = AIL
- Column 2 = 35
21. Press the "Exit" button twice.
22. Connect your Naza FC to your PC.
23. Connect your flight pack/battery.
24. Open the Naza Assistant to the "Calibration" tab.
25. In the Naza Assistant, press the "Calibrate" button and move the sticks to all of their extents, then press "Done".
26. Change all of the buttons on the right from "REV" to "Norm". Move the control sticks on the transmitter and make certain that all of the control directions move in the correct way. Consult the right pane for a description of which direction they should be moving.
27. On your radio, Right Scroll to "Limits" page (6/10).
28. In the steps 12 - 19 above you set up the "AUX. 3/F.Mode" as your M/A/GPS mode switch and your "AIL. D/R" as your failsafe. You will now have to modify the end points in this page for CH7 to activate your "GPS" and "M" modes when the "AUX. 3/F.Mode" is in its full off and full on positions. Middle position should already be "A" mode.
29. Scroll down to CH7 and press the minus "-" button to highlight the SECOND column.
30. With the "AUX. 3/F.Mode" switch in it's full OFF position, move this value up or down until the "M" mode highlights blue in the NAZA Assistant. Once that mode is set, press the "Exit" button on the transmitter.
31. With the CH7 still highlighted, press the minus "-" button to highlight the THIRD column.
32. Move the "AUX. 3/F.Mode" switch to it's full ON position, move this value up or down until the "GPS" mode highlights blue in the NAZA Assistant. Once that mode is set, press the "Exit" button on the transmitter.
33. Press "Exit" button one more time. You should now be at the main ER9x screen.
34. Disconnect the flight battery from the multirotor/Naza, disconnect the USB cable from the controller as well.

Mode switch for MAN/ATT/GPS is "AUX. 3/F.Mode"
Failsafe switch for is "AIL. D/R"
IOC (only 1 mode, sorry) is "ELE D/R"

That's it. You should be ready to rock. Coincidentally, you have only one, three-position switch on this radio. So taking that into effect, I had you setup the "ELE D/R" switch as the IOC control. If you wish to use IOC, you will have to adjust the end-points of CH6 to either "Home Lock" or "Course Lock". So it's one or the other.

Note: This HowTo was done in ER9x firmware version er9x-r753/V1.5627-erez.

Hope this helps,
HansAuf
Can you please list what channels on your rx are going to what on the naza fc.

brent278 - If you mean how would you hook it up to standard channels and not PPM, hope this helps as a work-around until DJI gets a better implementation of PPM on the NAZA.

DL_____NAZA
CH1 --> A
CH2 --> E
CH3 --> T
CH4 --> R
CH5 --> NOT CONNECTED
CH6 --> U
CH7 --> X2

In Naza Assistant:
On the "TX Cali" page, set all channel assignments to "NORM" for Normal, non-reveresed.
Set Receiver type to "Tradition".
Do your calibration and make sure your end mounts all activate the "A", "M", "GPS", and "Failsafe".
Go to the "AutoPilot" tab and make sure your end points are set so that whichever Intelligent Orientation Control you want activates and de-activates.

I kind of understand it. Do I copy steps 10 to 20 from your original post?

The while setup is the same except step #7. Instead of PPM you should use DSM.

Change Proto PPM to "DSM".

I have a Turnigy 9x without a module. Running Naza V1 & dragon link. I know the dragon link and transmitter are playing nice. I hooked up a servo directly to the dragon link channels with no problems.

When I go into Naza software and try to calibrate my transmitter I get no response from the movements.

Is the only way to make everything work is to follow Han's method? Does naza have to be in PPM and do i need to follow Naza's wiring setup for PPM?

Any suggestions would be appreciated!!!
