    [h=2]Differences between Naza-M V1 / V2 and Lite[/h]
    Differences between Naza-M V1 / V2 and Lite
    What is difference between those Naza-M family boards?
    Do they have same hardware like sensors and processor and so on. Is there difference in software?

    I am buying Naza-M lite or V2 but there is quite big price difference too.​

    BigBear, welcome to the forum, but please do not post same question in two discussion threads/categories. It makes it difficult for the users to have a cohesive thread to allow full discussion and keeps everyone from seeing the full set of responses/answers. Have fun picking a flight controller and any aircraft you build with it!

    Sorry that was my mistake. I didnt first notice DJI Naza subforum. Moderators should delete the other thread what I started.

    Thank you for precise information about different Naza M versions. Do they have same hardware and how they compare in flying and hovering? I am planning to buy flamewheel 550 frame with Naza V2 or Lite

    No worries.
    The hardware (i.e. ports in and out of the Naza) will be a little different because of the external hardware it is intended to support; but more importantly, the flying and performance is the same from everything I have read, so no worries there.
    If you expect to do any somewhat serious video work, I would go with the V2. I forgot to mention, but to use the new Zenmuse gimbal for the GoPro camera, you can't use the Lite version. So for you, the big differences would be: 1) support for DJI On-Screen Display, and 2) support for new Zenmuse GoPro gimbal. Neither of these are needs for a recreational pilot; but if you want to grow into some good video capabilities, you should consider the V2.

    I have eagletree datalogger what I could use with eagletree OSD to have same onscreen options like DJI OSD. Can I use third party gimbal with external gimbal control with Lite version? (I dont know why not because its external component)

    Basic question is that how sensors and flight algorithms are different in Lite vs V2.

    My understanding from reading the DJI information on their website:
    1) Yes, you can run other 3rd party gimbal on the Lite and has the same outputs (pitch and roll) for that as the V1 and V2.
    2) The sensor and flight control algorithms are the same between all three Naza models.

    I,m putting together a Phantom from stock DJI parts. The internal workings of the Phantom I am building is the same as a factory model.I have yet to get a Naza for it. What I,d like to know is which "Naza" to put in it and how once I have done so,program it properly. Thanks for any advice.

    BurntPixel... See my comments above, but if you plan to use DJI's OSD and/or Zenmuse gimbal on it, then you'll need to go with V1 or V2. Otherwise, you can go with the Lite version and use 3rd party OSD and gimbal.
    As for "programming" it, don't know exactly what you mean, but I would start by running the Assistant Software on your original Phantom you have, and page by page write down the settings from the one. Then using the Assistant Software on the new Naza/Phantom, configure it just like the original.

    Yes that would be easy to do.

    If you use one of the newer brushless gimbals, they have their own controller boards, so that is not an issue. Your EagleTree setup is superior to the iOSD offered by DJI, just a little more involved on the setup side of things.

    I read somewhere the LITE will have it's own version of the firmware and Assist program. Can someone confirm that? Also will the firmware be the same as V2?

    The DJI website indicates that the LITE will have it's own firmware and assistant software.

    Any idea exactly what that means? Will it have the improved coding from 3.12 V2 or not?

    I can only guess based on what's on their website that it is the same control laws, and basically all around same firmware, but with 8-rotor configs removed, as well as removal of CAN bus devices (such as iOSD and Zenmuse).
