dji naza and spektrum dx7 set up


I just bought a dji naza 450 from a fellow member on Rc groups.
I have looked through the threads and cant seem to find any set up instructions for my RX.
I am new to quads and I will be using a orange dsm2 rx.

I have download the Naza assistant and the driver. I think I understand how to set the end points etc on my Dx7 so i can switch between att mode and man. I will be using the gear switch for this

How do I set up failsafe? I want to use my Aux 2 switch.

I am going to be using acro mode on my Dx7.

Also do i need to arm the quad before I take off? How do i know if I am in att or man mode?

Much apprieciated for any advice.

I never finish anyth
Few notes:
Download the Naza owners manual before flying... learn it. I have read mine 4-5 times now. Memorize the LED lights and what they mean. The LED's tell the story about flying modes.

TEST everything on the ground with no props!

I am still unsure about the exact functionality regarding failsafes but from what I understand your RX needs to support failsafes. Look into that info while waiting for more seasoned vets to chime in.

Note that there have been some folks that have had issues with the Orange Rx. Fly aways, etc. Be very careful how you program failsafe into the Rx. +1 on RTFM. It really does help and will keep you our of trouble and flying longer and safer.

That is why it takes multiple readings to make sense of it. I keep a copy of all the DJI manuals on the desktop of my Mac. I find that I have to reference them often.

The part I dont get is how to you actually set the throttle at about 15%-20% for the failsafe so the when the switch is flicked the quad goes in to failsafe and lands. I get most of the rest of it.

usual old know-it-all
Andy,if Naza failsafe is set using a switch the quad will automatically adjust throttle and gently land.In Naza failsafe mode you have zero control of throttle unless you click it back to Atti or manual.It will self level as it comes down but will drift a bit in any breeze.

I thought you had to tell the failsafe what % of throttle to land at?

nah,Naza failsafe takes over throttle otherwise how would it land by itself..

Ye but I thought you you had to set the throttle. Thanks for that matey ;-)

theres no option to adjust the naza failsafe... so once you set naza to be on failsafe in case of lost com with the tx and rx or when you intentionally switch on the failsafe naza will handle the landing? thanks...

I am just wondering if the failsafe works with a spektrum rx. Be interested to know.

It depends on what Spektrum receiver you are using. AR500, AR600, AR61xx, AR62xx, NO. You need one that supports Pre-Set Failsafe. I am using AR7000 in mine and it does support Pre-Set Failsafe. AR9000 series (JR921) works as does AR8000.

You set the Pre-Set Failsafe during Bind by removing the bind plug AFTER applying power to the receiver. It will continue to remain in the bind mode. That way, you can set other than just the throttle to a preset value. To make the NAZA failsafe function, you need to preset the channel you are using to control Attitude/Manual so it highlights the Failsafe mode. Once you get this condition set in the receiver, when it loses communication with the transmitter, it will set the throttle channel to the 10% recommended value (or whatever you set during bind) and set the channel used for Attitude/Manual switch to a value that moves the Naza slider to failsafe position, not Attitude or Manual.
