    Naza is like honey badger. It don't give a f.... where it's at ... in fact, most FC's don't. we ran quite a few tests before we settled for the definite spots to put the FCs.

My 3S system supplying RVOSD (which supplies camera and vtx) was completely separated from the 4S system powering the motors through bottom plates. What do you need pictures of ?
    There is your problem. The V+ pins are "shorted" internally, as are the GND pins. Don't blame the DISCO though, they are shorted on most receivers as well! So if you want to use the traces for the RVOSD current sensor, you will need to use 3 separated traces e.g. signal of ch6, 7 and 8. The spacers do NOT carry GND or power.

    there are none, if your main power battery dies on a quad there is no need to have video of the "great fall of death"

    Battery cage: W55xH37xL173 mm - extreme dimensions, aim for 5-10 mm less

    Just a side-note, only the WKM can the position of the IMU be configured, the NAZA software only supports the GPS position.

    Ah. So thats the reason. Thanks for clarifying it.
    Good I'm not american, I would have sued you ass to the mars rover and back since it doesn't say anywhere in a manual.

    haha, i'm not american either btw, most receivers short their V+ pins also, so in either case you'd have fried something

    Yeah. One ubec, a Dragonlink receiver and a partly retarded rvosd which now is on its way to Vova for repairs.

    This is my contribution to the list of failing DJI equipment. Unfortunaly the gopro ejected the memory card on impact (which now is taped).
    The shaking is from a motor about to die. And so it did. Long steep walk to fetch it.
