You might discover some adhesive helping hold the wire to the PCB.
Cut that away, and replace it (if you want) after you're finished with something appropriate.
Use a low wattage PCB iron.
It'll be like soldering the ESC wires to the Naza bottom plate in minature...
So since there is no loose rattling sound coming from the receiver I will assume the clip if there is one is still in place on the board. The end of the wire that came out looks like it just separated from the inside. This receiver has 2 antenna wires so I bet it still is flying using the still attached antenna wire. I will open the case and see if I have the skills to re solder the wire to whatever it was connected to. If I need adhesive I guess I could just use my hot glue gun.

Futaba = Easy

Open up the case, and have a look inside, here is a picture of the inside of a Futaba Rx . You can see the two antenna wires, and the metal clips at the end that are a press fit onto a male pin on the circuit board.

If the clip receptacle is broken or damaged, you need a new receiver. If the wire is just broken, you might be able to order a replacement antenna wire?
Man, the Futaba attachment looks really user friendly (+1 for Futaba).
If Futaba is what GW has, he might not even have to solder.
I know that the Spektrum antenna wires are soldered to the board.

Georgian Peaks FPV


I was at the Georgian Peakss ski club with my Naza TBS Disco for some FPV fun. I hooked up with the boys from TBRC, Zoltan from NGHobbies, Greg from Fatshark and a few more fellows. Lots of flights from wings to multis. Here are a few pics and my two flights.

Geogian Peaks FPV #1 (11 min 5 sec)


Georgian Peaks FPV #2 (10 min 26 sec)

I got the RX 802 and it has the "normal" antenna sockets. For 2.4GHz stuff you rarely see something else. Any replacement antenna should work. I ordered some from HK which are originally for FrSky.

Your link does show the FC on a larger frame.
Draw your own conclusions...
Experimenting is what a lot of this hobby is about.
Let us know how it goes if you decide to try it!
TJ, Don't you remember? You helped me get this beast going. It's 110cm (1,100mm) M to M.

There is at least one person using a Naza with GPS on an S800 frame.

I'm sorry.
After a while, all the posts and issues sort of swim together or fade to gray.
I think you probably understand that...
Like wazzer and I were saying, it should work, and your success proves it!
Thanks for the reminder...

I'd also forgotten how impressive the video was! Went back and watched it again. You're setup must be near perfect to achieve such steady results. I sincerely doubt anything I posted caused your craft to fly that well. That credit goes to you as the builder/pilot. Kudos!
Thanks for sharing it again.


BTW, what ESCs/motors make up your powertrain?
Brand and size, if you don't mind...

That's a relief, as I've just built a quad that's only 690mm motor to motor and have not tried it yet until the 2nd Naza arrives.

I didn't mean to lead anyone to think that Naza can't handle larger airframes.
Being the cautious fellow that I am, I just was insinuating that experimenting into unrecommended areas requires extra attention to details, trial & error work, and more knowledge.
Also, since most posters are here to air problems, the few success stories that are posted get covered up and forgotten. I honestly had forgotten mikemijal's success story (back in August & 2000 posts back on the GPS thread)...
