Holy crap the black tape on the naza side worked for me. I thought this was crazy lol. My altitude issues in yaw have disappeared.

Well I am glad this thread has helped people out. I have 4 nazas now and they are all covered. I haven't experienced any further issues with altitude drops since covering them.

Can you just tape up the whole left side or do you have to be concerned about airflow into the naza's baro? I'm not sure where there is an air port in the case or not.

Thanks for the tip!

Some months ago, I noticed that when covered, the naza keeps the altitude better, not only on yawing, but hovering either, but i thought it was because of the windy hitting the nazathat wasn't perfectly sealed, not the sun!

Same issue here. I posted this problem today, so it's not all me. This is not a sun/ raidiant heat problem as it drops the same at 10PM as at 1

My NAZA is now on a QAV500 frame and I sticked my Rx on the left side of the NAZA box. Flys great! Please send me some sunshine!

Once more for the non believers, it is bright (sun)light that affects the baro, not heat! I assume heat will also have an effect on a baro, but not way as much as light.

Well, I'll revise what I said... It happens the same at 10PM as it does at 1:00... WHEN I HAVE A 300w SPOT ON IT!!

Covered the left side of the FC and problem gone! in fact on a hard 100% R or L Yaw, it actually climbs a few inches.

Xnaron: How did you stumble across this?

I have the entire top/sides taped up with electrical tape, with no ill effect.

a closeup video of it happening

you can see the little white box in the middle of the frame on the bottom pate. the first 15 seconds was manual, then i yawed into the light, you see the box light up like a bulb and it falls like a rock
naza sun on the barometer bit (1 min 14 sec)

that's not me landing it,,,

I have seen this and thought about another reason why this may be happening. The Naza does not have a vent hole. It relies on the fact that the case is not a sealed unit. Seems pretty much sealed to me, and thus temperature sensitive in the extreme. So I took it apart and found a good place to drill a very small hole on each side of the top case. Since I did this I have not had any problems.

Is it possible street lights could give the same effect? I've been trying to trouble shoot a problem with my quad dropping in forward flight when the throttle is at 50%

I have been messing with gains, batteries, props, and still nothing has worked...I came across this post yesterday while searching the multirotor forums...I don't remember my quad specifically falling when yawing, it's mainly when im in forward flight.

Thanks!

In my opinion its not a good idea to drill extra holes in the case. Barometers are very sensitive to wind. The best solution is just to tape the left side with electrical tape.

It is a fact that barometer sensors are sensitive to light. Look at page 25 of this document http://www.bosch-sensortec.com/conte...5-DS000-05.pdf
This is a common pressure sensor used on may multirotor controller boards.

What about the LEDs that are inside of the naza case? Can those have an effect to?
