Did this video help you?

RC Foamfly: Thanks. Just got into quad and this is a good You Tube. I think the nose has to be facing down on the second stage but easy to understand. I also had to alter my settings on the Naza Lite programmed from Alti - GPS to GPS - Manual. Once its calibrated I moved it back to Alti - gps. I never fly in Manual mode. Guaranteed crash for us beginners. The technology is there so why not use it. Anyway, thanks from RCFoamfly in Australia

FlyBoySee: Hiya Jim! Glad to find this video - finally got a quad now, and it's time to do the Disco Dance! Hey, it's Mad Dogs next weekend, flying spots are all taken - but welcome to join us for some barbie mate. Richard (1st Novemberm usual place).

Arnold Harns: Did not know about the 11 times... thank you very much! mine works now perfect!!! But is is not the second time, nose down and turn?

Fredrik Åström: Isn't this the gyro you are calibrating? Not the compass. What would the compass benefit from being turned around?

barış deniz: I have a problem with compass calibration mod. I m using Naza M lite. i had calibrated compass many times but in last 3 days i can not calibrating my compass. Preblem is, when i calibration mode, first stage is ok geting green light but second stage (vertical side) always ending with flashing red light. I tried 20-30 times. Inside home, outside, in garden... double checked magnetic things but there is nothing. What is the cause of this problem or what will be solution? Thanks in advance

Nathan Haustein: Great how-to video. I think a common mistake is flicking the switch continuously until the light turns yellow. Your tip of just doing it 11 times then stopping made all the difference. Thanks so much.

welshwizard822: Great very helpful vid. this is the only one that worked for me, very easy to follow a great help...... Thanks

fpv welshdude jones: when i turn my tbs on, the naza last 4 flashes should be green.i only get 3 green flashes.could you tell me y

harrismagnum04: should be nose down on second part of calibration :-)

Allan T: Hi when I flick between manual and GPS I can't get the calibration light on,I tried altitude and GPS aswell bit still no even flicking 20 times

Swampy AJC: Thank you so much for posting this! I was so confused as to how my new build was just trying to rotate left all the time! I cant wait to get home and do this step I missed!

Bishop Line: The low level of your GPS receiver had affected the signal detection? Thanks.

Second Unit Aerials: Good video. Simple and to the point. However, the instruction sheet for MY Naza M (V2) on my QAV540G states rotating along the horizontal axis 360Deg until the light goes from red to green and then putting the NOSE (gimbal) of the aircraft in vertical (facing down to the ground, or hanging from its tail)) and rotate the vertical axis 360Deg until the light extinguishes. Then it's good to go. Calibrating sideways will introduce a 90Deg phase offset. You calibrated your vertical axis on the side. Arrow points to the ground on second rotation. 

stjernen: How did you fit the graupner props on the dji motors? 

Mariano Hernandez 1: So after the green solid light supposed to go back to GPS. Dji told me the after the green solid light it supposedly turn off completely I'm confused I got naza v2 please reply

norem mac: thing is thats what ive done sevel times and all works apart from when i turn on gps hold in flight it no longer holds its position, any ideas on whats wrong?

Richard Holroyd: I recently bought a Storm drome. (DJI Naza M Lite) Found it difficult to Compas. I tried your 11 clicks several times to no avail . Tried 8 clicks and it worked. I got a Phantom , ...seems to work much easier 8and above. Maybe it calls for trial and patience.....what ever works for your kite..:-) Thanks for your video :-)

Mohamad Khalil Hamieh: from where you got the landing gear ?

Crazy3Dpilot: Your Welcome m8! Jim.

Crazy3Dpilot: Your welcome!! Jim.

Crazy3Dpilot: just because it works better this way :) Jim.

GeorgeBonez: Your comment isnt spam. Why do good comments get flagged as spam so much on yt? Thats bullcrap!

intensewalkera: Why do you turn it on its Rhs when calibrating the vertical axis? Most people point the GPS module toward the ground, ie turn it on to its front. I have to say that I get better results when I do it on the side, I just don't know why. The manual shows its facing downwards.

cajoseno: I think DJI updated this in the v2.5 of the manual which was released february 18th. In the manual before this, nose position wasn't mentioned.

florent pistorius: Thanks for the procedure . Well commented and performed

Crazy3Dpilot: was a pleasure!! Jim.

Crazy3Dpilot: Hey WD40, Happy to help, enjoy your naza :) Jim.

Crazy3Dpilot: Quote 'Or do you have to have it set for GPS,Atti & Manual and then change out the Manual mode after calibration?' Correct :) JIm

John Ruben de la Fuente: Hai like your video was a great help to get the compass calibrated , but do you now anyting about the failsafe settings , cant get mine to go in failsafe if i shut down the radio , any help mabe ??

daniel upson: How long flight times you get with that battery what cell battry you using

Crazy3Dpilot: Hi Vhsprod, Yup 11 times works every time :), Glad the video was of help to you :) Jim.

JohnVH541: weird, the manual says nose down, you didnt do it nose down on the second one..

irvan36mm: Can you get into calibration mode if you have the 3-way switch set for GPS,Atti and Fail-Safe...? Or do you have to have it set for GPS,Atti & Manual and then change out the Manual mode after calibration?

Crazy3Dpilot: Your Welcome Frank :) Jim.

Crazy3Dpilot: check your endpoints

Crazy3Dpilot: Landing gear is salvaged from an old feytec x4 quad :) Jim

Crazy3Dpilot: Only need to do the dance once :), unless you change your layout or add a new component then you must redo. Jim.

Crazy3Dpilot: Glad to help Matey :) JIm.

Steve Mouton: mine don't want to go in the calibration mode.....from gps to manual mode, even more then 11....nothing....

Crazy3Dpilot: Happy to help :) Jim

joe janis: how often must u do the dance? is it everytime u fly no matter where u fly...or only once?

Dave Engelen: Hi crazy 3d pilot. Thnx for this video. Do you know how to do this with a Spektrum dx6i ? I already crashed my F450 because i couldn't get it into calibration mode.... Don't know how to get it programmed in the wright order (gps -- Manual). Can you help me? Thnx, gr. Dave

rugpoker: makes me laugh every time i watch this vid with u at the start going apecrap with ur quad :D good stuff. cheers for the upload mate, comes in handy as I am a forgetful bastard :D

hapirock1: Finally someone who speaks English when it comes to this procedure!

SHAWNS High Altitude Media: Great video ! Thank you!

Crazy3Dpilot: No worries :)

Crazy3Dpilot: your welcome :)

WD-40: I have been trying to do this all day, worked first time after watching your video. Thanks
