WIP - Trying to keep it up to date to latest CF (Cleanflight) version.

This new blog entry is mostly what I had already posted in my previous ZMR250 build log. This is the blog post you will want to check for the wiring of the different components.

I decided to separate each part of the setup into different blog posts for easier editing and attachment management

Anyways here we go, this will be a CF 1.9.0 setup on a MassiveRC Acro Naze32 Blackbox edition.

I will be using the very standard FrSky D4R-II. I am waiting on newer board with more UART to switch to the newer SBUS/SPORT version. I did modify an X4R, which involved desoldering tiny sma resistors, fun stuff That was before I realized I would be short on UART on a Naze32 if I wanted to run an OSD and LED... I will work on it some more on the bench as having a digital Rx signal and 16CH would be nice

At first I figured an OSD would be useless for FPV racing. I still think so, but the Micro MinimOSD running ScarabOSD (MWOSD) with PID setting in the OSD menu got me sold on installing one on my racer. Plus CF can setup a switch to turn it off during races.

So let's get into the setup!

Start by downloading the latest Cleanflight Configurator, you will need Google Chrome installed on your computer.
