    What's the difference between the NAZA that comes in the Phantom 2 and the NAZA M V2?

    Thx!

    The Phantom 2 Naza is a Naza M V2 that has some of the features disabled and some of the options hard coded. They are otherwise the same.

    There are a few. It uses its own Assistant, and as ianwood said some of the features in Assistant are different from the regular NAZA-M. For one, no X1/X2 gains adjustment. Implementation of separate Phantom and NAZA modes in Assistant. Its firmware also supports the airport no-fly zones ,which the base Naza-M currently does not.

    The Phantom NAZA also handles a few P2-specific hardware differences, such as:
    - Lock arming without P2 smart battery detected
    - Control the status LEDs on the ESCs
    - Essentially makes CanBUS support a prerequisite for operation (due to SMB)

    And a few other things that are slipping my mind right now.

    Thanks.

    So that would basically keep one from pulling the NAZA out and using it on other frames.

    Correct (unless you took the P2 battery and mainboard with you).
