Open up the Naza Assistant, click on Tools, then click on check for updates.

It's not on the website, it says "* Download the Firmware via Assistant software."

Note, though that the new firmware updates the throttle functionality to the same style as the DJI Phanton. ie: Thrust/power engages at 50% throttle. The good news is, you can always downgrade the firmware by using the old Naza Assistant. I am hoping that you guys (DJI) will make that throttle setting optional in the next release.

Any experience yet?
Has anyone used the new firmware on NAZA-M yet? I'm looking to upgrade, but like any new versions I am apprehensive until there is firm proof that it is a "good" update....

Can you explain the throttle functionality? The motors do not spool up until throttle position is at 50%??? Wonder what the rationale behind that is....

For the sake of fairness though, like I said the stability improvement and GPS functionality improved performance is really great. As evident in this video. Unfortunately, the throttle thing is a deal breaker for me.

Not sure what the 2nd video is showing ?
I always have a lot of trouble downloading new software and getting it to work, so I need a really good reason to go thru that pain for new improvements.
Getting the NAZA controller and the assistant software to talk to each other is always difficult to nearly impossible with any new down load. Once working I have to follow a strict protocol of what and when to plug in or start assistant or else it doesn't work.
Once things are talking, it is simple and effective to use. And the flight characteristics blow me away.
While the assistant human interface is great, why is it so difficult and complex to download and make it work ?
I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Hiya GF! I've always had great luck with the UI on the DJI stuff. Could be any number of things. At any rate, the video... if you'll notice at the 20 second or so mark, that the pilot has to push to almost 50% throttle before the ship comes off the ground. Watch some DJI Phantom instructional videos on youtube and you may catch the gist of it better. To fly it though... ugh. But that's a personal preference. It may be acceptable for some and may even be better for them.

GF, What problem do you have typically? Once the assistant is connected to the MC, you click on update, it updates.

Verify your settings have remained the same, then go fly. If there were additions to the programming, like the height restrictions buttons for instance, obviously you'll need to set those up as well.

There have been a couple of updates that caused bugs, which were immediately updated to correct, so it may be prudent to let others try them first ( ), but you'll know within a few days if all is good.

It is also possible to go back to a particular version if you so prefer, simply keep the previous version on your computer. If you want to go back, open that version and update.

Hans have you tried the new throttle setup yet? You might like it if you try it...

Yeah Chris, I tried it on one of my setups. I even fought through trying to like it more...lol It's just not natural feeling. But I can see the benefit for some newer fliers that tend to hover around in the propwash and end up wrong side up. In talking with several other people , personally mind you, not internet hubub sessions, the majority seem to dislike it. Not saying it's bad though. We just have to hope that DJI sees this and makes it an enable/disable option. They've been pretty good about that sort of thing in the past. We'll see. For the machines I build for others I will try to use Naza V1 with the non-v2 firmware until they make it an option (or until the hardware is gone).

As an indoor flyer from time to time I see potential catastrophe when this thing takes off and doesn't "allow" me to fly in my own propwash...

Fingers crossed for a disable feature. Looking forward to the new improved stability though!

My problems have always getting the assitant to connect to the NAZA-M. Once it connects this thing is great and easy. I don't know why I have so much trouble with the assistant anytime I update things, my desktop is Vista, my laptop is windows 7.
Anyway, this NAZA is great, I have two units on two multirotors.

With the upgrade to v3.10 from a V1 Naza. The firmware will in some circumstances force you to do an advanced IMU calibration before you can proceed. Do it. You will fly so much better. Go to tools and click the button that says restore factory defaults. The start from the beginning. Go through each tab and sub tab and answer the questions, it does not take long. In most instances, you do not have to press enter or like the old GUI, write. The program recognizes what you are doing.

This version is a major revision. The take off sequence is very different. Some like it, some do not. I am indifferent. It is close to what I do anyway. I do like how it flies. Here is a short video that I did with my Phantom running v3.10 before it was approved.

GF, that is odd. I'm still using XP myself, any main controller I plug into it connects immediately to the assistant, Whether Wookong M, Naza M or H, And all the Ace series.

Do you always use the same USB port? Try a different one. Maybe a different cord...

Chris,
It seems only when I try to do an update that I get in trouble, or the assistant tells me I need to update and it automaticly tries to update with some questions about a password (??) and it refuses to connect to the MCU(the NAZA-m ?).
At any rate, Assitant seems to be working well right now.
.
.
I now have a new problem in the MCU won't always initialize, it just keeps giving me a rapid continuous blinking error. I have completly recalibrated the unit with the gps/compass. Sometimes afterwards it works, sometimes not. (calibration sequence always works)
Anyway, I will keep trying to figure out what the heck is going on and let you know if I find any solutions to MY problems.
This NAZA-M works so great when flying for my simple aerial work, it is great !!
I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

A little clarity may be helpful here.

I assume you have registered, using an email address, and given that registration a password?

If I hook up the MC to the Laptop in a new or different internet network, it may ask for my password, but not always.

There have only been 2 firmware updates for the Naza M, and 2 updates to the Assistant program.

So in effect, you should have had to only update twice, as you update the assistant program then update the firmware, in simple terms.

IF the assistant comes up with the page requiring a password, be sure to enter the same one you registered with. There are occasions when the DJI server is down, Not sure why, if it gets overloaded with people updating or what, but it's usually back up in a day. And you don't HAVE to update.

More concerning is this "continuous blinking error" What color is the blink? If you disconnect the battery and reconnect, does it clear the error? I have had on occasion when the unit didn't boot up properly, for whatever reason. Disconnecting has always cured it.

If and when I did, I don't remember the password, so that is frustrating but usually I get around that by trying several times.
.
As for the fast blink, it is yellow, which according to the manual means TX signal loss. Yet when this was happening, I had a servo in a spare channel to check and the servo would respond correctly. Lots of plug and unplug power didn't solve the error.
Disconnecting has always cured it.
Same for me, but not yesterday.
I have gone over the unit carefully checking for loose connections or worn wires and everything looks good.
Eventually while sitting on the ground furiously blinking yellow, it suddenly went to normal indications. Then the flight was flawless.
I have gone over the unit carefully checking for loose connections or worn wires and everything looks good. This was always with fully charged 4S batteries.

That was yesterday, today it initializes every time, no problem.

With v3.10 the IMU has to warm up and get stable. I think that is what you are experiencing. Glad to hear it is flying well.
