    I'm helping a friend build an octo copter that uses the NAZA M V2 flight controller. I read that the system uses a D bus controller system. What does that mean, and is futaba my only option in non DJI control systems? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Dbus is similar to PPM, in that you are able to send all of your signals over a single servo cable rather than hooking each channel up with it's own wire. You can use Dbus with a NAZA, you can also use a standard setup with one wire per channel, all depends on the needs of your specific build.

    The Naza supports both PPM and S-bus inputs.

    If you Google the Naza you can find the manual on-line for review.

    So is that just a matter of finding a dbus transmitter and receiver and hooking it up?
