Re: Naze32 hardware discussion thread

Very weird.

Do you have video of it doing it? Sure you don't have low battery cut off or soft-off enabled in ESCs? I guess not.. but still, it doesn't sound like FC related, although swapping to CC3D would indicate it is FC related.

Did you check the manual? You just need to connect Rx/Tx to RC Pins 4 and 5 (not necessarily in that order) and ground and +5v to any of the gnd/+5v headers. You'll of course need to configure it in CLI as well for your particular GPS.
