    the individual left out the configuration of the ESC's to the NAZA. Can and one help me with this completion of the wiring . He said I need a coax 8 to connect 8 ESC's. What is a coax 8?

    Your reference is quite vague.

    If you are referring to the Battery + / - connections from the main board to the ESCs, DJI has used coaxial cable for some reason.

    Maybe they have determined that is in need of shielding (which I have not seen the need for in my CP helis).

    And to connect 8 ESCs you would need 8 pieces of coax.

    In the P2 they are about 2 inches long if I recall.

    Check out the link below on what I'm trying to do from this individual from rcgroup forum and the message.


    Yes, with a coax 8 you use 8 ESCs all connected to the output end of the Naza, and you can choose in Naza Assistant the correct motor mixer (x8) so it knows which motors to fire.

    You do need to install the props "upside down" on the bottom motors and reverse the motor direction because they will be spinning reversed when inverted.

    Here's how you do it:
