We have found possibly the easiest to use FPV flight controller for the money, the DJI Naza!
The Naza is an all-in-one module which is perfect for FPV. Since it does not include GPS, the price is very reasonable, and it is probably the best value for the dollar for non-gps flight controllers.
Setup time from box to air took us approximately 10 minutes because the software is so easy to use. There are only a few simple parameters to set up, and all channel reversing can be done in the software which means less time running through transmitter settings. In fact we didn’t even need to change the transmitter model… we just dropped the Naza in, set the servo directions in the software, took a guess at the gains and we were flying.
Because it features both auto level and altitude hold, it is extremely easy to fly, especially when doing FPV. The altitude hold works extremely well… it is possible to set the altitude to 1 or 2ft above the ground and fly around a field just a foot or two off the ground without ever touching the throttle!
Gains can be controlled fully from the transmitter or the software, or both, and it is as simple as enableing the channel you would like to use for remote gain adjustment.
The Naza also includes an external ultra bright LED module which flashes it’s status as you are flying. When autopilot mode is enabled, the LED flashes yellow. When the battery gets low, it begins to flash red, and as the voltage drops the flashing red light flashes faster… and when the battery reaches a critical low voltage the Naza will go into an auto-land routine. We have tested this and it works every time … the quad lands gently without any input from the pilot.
Overall we were so impressed with the Naza that we became a distributor for them!
The Naza includes not only the naza module but the LED module as well as a USB cable for firmware updates, all receiver cables for connection, configuration, etc.
We know you will be impressed. We certainly were.
