Re: MF70 CNC Conversion

I'm still looking for a small project for an article using the MF70 CNC. I was thinking of some sort of gear reducer or wheel drive system for a small bot much like the PBOD.

Re: MF70 CNC Conversion

Using a SmoothStepper controller I was able to use my Surface Pro 2 tablet to control the MF70 CNC.

Re: Kronos Flyer Series

They are now up here:
http://www.krcnc.com/naza-setup/

Please note they are not compatible with the newest version and software used on the NAZA. They closely match the NAZA light software.

Re: Kronos Flyer Series

I don't have any information on the 9XR as I don't own one. I provided settings for the 9X. Just know that any changes in the firmware will mean you need to figure out your own settings.

Re: Kronos Flyer Series

First off I would recommend starting without the GPS. The NAZA calibrated to your radio should be able to hover and fly very easy. Once you can hover then the rest is easy. Just avoid turning your craft as the orientation will change and the controls will be reversed if it is pointing toward you. La...

Re: Kronos Flyer Series

Their are actually three types of Naza controllers. Naza-M These are the original Naza controllers. They are great controllers but will probably be phased out over time. The firmware can be updated and with a new VMU is compatible with the Naza-M V2. Nasa-M V2 This is the new Naza-M and is more stab...

Re: Kronos Flyer Series

If it stayed in place and did not crash then it could be:

Bad or unbalanced prop.
Loose or unbalanced motor.
