18/09/19 – As you can see, this description is slightly out of date. It is September 2019 (as I write this), they are an older flight controller that is absolutely fine for someone wanting a budget way to get into mini quads or wanting a replacement for your classic quad.
The Naze 32 is the absolute king of flight controllers for those not wanting GPS and Return To Home like the DJI Naza and that are wanting a cheap and acrobatic controller for 250 and 180 class quadcopters, as well as bigger frames such as the F450
We recommend programming the controller with the Chrome-based BaseFlight, such as BaseFlight or CleanFlight
You will also need a Mini USB cable.
The Naze 32 requires the pins soldering to the PCB, either the strait or 90 degree bent ones, you can see both types below.
• Flexible motor outputs, support various airframe types:
Quad/Hexa/Tri/Bi/Y4/Y6/Octo/Camera Gimbal. (Default is Quad-X)
• Up to 8 ch RC input – supports standard receivers (PWM), PPM Sum receiver (FrSky, etc), or Spektrum satellite receivers.
• Built-in FrSky telemetry inverter (shared w/main port)
• Battery voltage monitoring
• A modern 32-bit processor running at 3.3V/72MHz (STM32F103CB).
• Onboard MicroUSB for setup and configuration
• LEDs so bright, they could blind you
• MultiWii-based configuration software for easy setup
• rev5 hardware
