I hope that works. He told me to hold off buying one until he got it fixed. Looking forward to what you have to say. -- JOHN

It sounds like Gary is going to just load new firmware. Hopefully you will be fine. -- JOHN

As soon as we get this issue sorted out, I plan on having him do a big run of these, like 24 or 30.

That's right, it is just a new firmware load that I'm doing. The hardware is still the same.

I'd like to get one of them in the next run. I hovered over the "buy" button when he had them in stock but regret not clicking now. :P

gary has been working on instruction all yesterday. he should just release a prelim version for now and add to it as he works on it. (frankly, it probably is even better to share the instruction via google doc that people can modify /add to)

naze32 can easily be flashed and setup. firmware update is pretty straight foward using CLi (command line interface) and USB port. I am actually thinking of using it for my new quad (2kg) as FCB/gimbal controller. I should be making more progress on this today. (I did some minor design changes yesterday)

Hi Darren --

Glad to see it arrived safe and sound.

I just finished the instructions last night, finally. Anyway, they are attached.

Yes, the new FW will simply download into your existing Naze32 board. They are are identical, including the ones I have here.

If this latest update cures the acc.-based twitch problem, this will be what I consider to be the ultimate gimbal controller solution. It can handle 500Hz output rates, lets you set the endpoints out the max the servo can handle and it has lots of granularity in the gains adjustments, so that you get get them exactly set. All this in a board that we can offer at $65-$70 (depending on the exchange rate...), with open source software. I can't imagine what a Skyline or a PicLoc can do that this solution can't.
