    Well, got my Naza-M V2 from getfpv last night. When I ordered, product info was Naza-M V2 with GPS, picture showed FC & GPS module. Guess what............NO GPS. So if you search in the product info for 20 minutes you'll finally find line "click here to order GPS". Oh, and good luck finding one for under $150. Not such a great deal after all:mad:

    Crap! That's a ripoff. I've been to the getfpv web site, but haven't ordered anything. If I ever do, I'll be sure to look for any "fine print".
    Sorry to hear that Renov8r.

    Yes, it's weird. If you go to their site, they have the Naza-M itself and the Naza-M with GPS module, and both are $158??? Doesn't matter as I ordered the G2 neo8 GPS which is PNP with the Naza and reviews are excellent. Everyone says that it works much better than the stock DJI unit and as a bonus, it's only $35:D

    Gotta love it. After about a week, I finally got an email from the Tarot service after I told them I was running Win 8.1.

    pls change 7 or xp
    zhang

    WTF? Is he telling me that the assistant won't run on Win 8? Or is he telling me I have to change a diaper?

    Zhang's an ass, don't listen to him. It should work. Works for me in Win 10 just fine

    no, I paid a whole lot less than DJI. but the Tarot is back in the box on a shelf, waiting for my next build. I'll fiddle around with it then. Right now the V2 is doing quite well on the half dozen or so test flights I've made. I'm upping the gains each time, and watching the control. I'm also trying to isolate the vibration at the cam, improving a little each time. Last test was specifically hovering in place to clock actual flight time, 6.5 - 7 minutes on a 3S.

    No, I paid $1 less. BUT like I said, it's so misleading and everyone's doing the same thing. It say's Naz-M with GPS right? Well sure, it's GPS capable, btu you don't get it when you order this. Look at line 7 of the description. "GPS Module Available for Accurate Position Stabilization".

    Have you gotten any flying time in this summer?

    Jackson, not sure who you were asking, but I've finally gotten an hour or so of good flying, all in the past week. But I'm going to rack up those hours quickly. plan on doing a lot of "tuning" this week. I'm curious about attempting to fly my 6S battery in this quad.. It's only flown on 3S batts. so far, anything I should watch out for?

    Hi everyone.
    Well I bought one of the Tarot zyx-m controllers, got it all fitted and looking good. Went to hook it up to my PC clicked connect, the button at the top said connected but the one at the bottom that matters said unconnected.
    Loaded all required drivers! When connecting the use the pc recognises it and creates a com port but still won't hook up.
    Anyone got any ideas!

    Naza-M V2 (Includes GPS)

    Shows this at top so it does come with the puck. I would send yours back and get this one. The price is also reduced from 299 which is how much a complete kit has previously been.

    Are you using the cable that came with the controller?

    You asked if the OSD was for the Naza or the Tarot. Does it matter? I'm doing well with the V2, so I'll stay with it for a while. If it's workin', don't fix it!

    So you've gone into the program file for the ZYX-M and actually downloaded the drivers? Also, in the assistant, where it shows the com port, did you click on the refresh button and drop down and click on the com port that it shows?
     
  18. Glenn Fevreau

    Glenn Fevreau kracka

    Yep done that and most of everything else.
    Different laptops, different ways of doing the procedure and anything else I could find.
    At the moment I'd like to just throw it in the bin and get a naza -m ver 2 and start again.

    Silly question, but did you attach the little module thingy on the end of the USB cable before you attached it to the data port of the ZYX-M?

    Yep I have that little micro usb thing plugged in befor the controler
