Sorry, but if you HAVE NOT UPGRADED, and FLOWN with the new firmware please do not COMMENT on the NEW FIRMWARE!
I'm sure this problem is exacerbated or looses something in the translation but they went from VERY BAD to WORSE!
Unless my controller is exhibiting something different from every one else's, and I have no reason to think that it is, this is what MINE IS doing.
Set the cut-off to IMMEDIATE when you arm in ATTITUDE MODE it disarms when the throttle goes below 10% -- BUT
it will arm again when you raise the throttle above 10%
Set the cut-off to INTELLIGENT and when you arm in ATTITUDE MODE it seems to behave the same as before, ATTITUDE takes over your throttle the problem for me is that it raises the RPM to a point that my HEX won't descend without lowering the throttle below 10%.
So why is this happening? First I think it is happening because of a very BAD engineering decision, I do not understand what problem they are trying to solve with this "FEATURE?"
Secondly, we're not all building the "NAZA KIT," because of the rather good flight characteristics of this controller I would like to carry a DSLR which means I have enough prop, motor, battery and ESC to hover [without the DSLR] at approximately 25-30% throttle, that's way too narrow a margin for safety, especially in attitude mode.
I ate the first crash, it cost me more to repair my Hex than the NAZA costs, but that's sometimes the costs for being an early adopter. However, I was very lucky that no one was hurt.
I cannot be the only person on this thread who recognizes the seriousness of a mutli rotor just falling out of the sky especially because of a VERY BAD ENGINEERING POLICY!
There should be absolutely NO WAY TO DISARM the multirotor in flight with the Transmitter. Component failure is one thing, but THIS IS ABSOLUTELY F
Soory for the rant, but SidneyW if your the intermediary here you NEED to make the engineers at DJI understand the seriousness of this issue. This has been discussed enough on this and other forums, this does not appear to be happening because of component failure so I think its bordering on negligence. John your my reseller, lean on these guys, I mean this is really, really stupid.
So please fix this. As always if I have implemented this incorrectly or have a faulty NAZA, I apologize.
Just to be clear, this happens in Immediate mode?
One thing I did find is that in Immediate mode, if you are in manual and you turn the transmitter off, the motors do not disarm.... ever.... so in the event of a dead TX battery you are looking at further damage. I am certain this is a bug that will get fixed.
Regarding the disarm while flying I understand why they are doing this. If you say, arm your quad on the bench, and then lower the stick to stop it... you forget... and you bump the transmitter and suddenly you have a blender heading towards your face. They are smart to disarm after 4 seconds.
It seems to me the real problem here is that DJI engineers have not yet added one important feature... an ability to PROGRAM the lowest idle speed. A slider which lets you teach the Naza where the lowest possible idle speed is would be the solution here. They are obviously programming for their own Naza hardware and had not expected such a variance in multirotor designs. Give them time, they are smart engineers undoubtedly under sales pressure and deadlines like the rest of us.
I'm a software engineer... I wish I could help DJI here and add a few features
