hey , so I abandoned the apm 2.6 on my disco, ive been using the naza and to be honest I havent looked back , I had real issues trying to tune my pids I spent weeks and hundreds of different levels and it was still way to unstable to fly I then swapped out the apm for the naza and still had problems untill I changed my esc and then it flew perfectly on stock settings no tweeks no tuning it just worked and because I was so tired of trying to the he apm going ive left it ina box for anorher project , the problem esc were the tbs bullet proof esc I don't know if it was the apm that messed them up but I csnt get them to work with the naza either ,as for placement of the apm 2.6 keep it as central as possible if you need to leave it on the top deck while your configuring it once you have it sorted relocate it down stairs , just keep it as close to the center of gravity as possible good luck

Thanks for the info, well one good thing another person is using the APM without issues here so hopefully he will have enough insight on any issues I have.   He does not use the stock ESCs so hope thats not an issue.  I will let you know, I had a NAZA before they added waypoints and yeah, they are amazing.  But I like all the extras with the APM although that gap is closing more and more.

Now that I think of it you maybe should have cut the red wire to the ESCs on the data line?

I have found it is better to always cut all but one power line from the escrow the hard way. I had some that said they were fine but fried everything including the esc. It was a mess that could have been avoided easily, besides you even save a tiny amount of weight taking out the 3 wires.

LEGO® Mini Drone with NAZE32 motors and Brusless motors

Posted on October 13, 2016 at 6:00pm 1 Comment

Hi everyone, I am the maker of the very first LEGO drone which I initially used an APM flight controller.  Later I got with my friend Nick and we made our first Kickstarter with a full sized drone. But since then the FAA started requiring registration and for kids it was a little too much. Also since then there has been a lot of other LEGO based mini quads. The problems with all the ones I have seen so far was they were all brushed motors, 1-2 min flight times and worse,…


FLIR just added a new imager in the line up, ten times less expensive than traditional thermal cameras.

FLIR just added a new imager in the line up ten times less expensive than traditional thermal cameras.

Resolution is  80 × 60 active pixels so I guess its to low res for a pilot camera at night.  At least prices are coming down
