I've read quite a few posts and the general vibe I get is that Naza Mode is something you 'graduate' to--something that you use after you learn the ropes--a better place to be. My question: Why is that? I'm just going to put down a few of my thoughts and you can tell me why I'm wrong or agree with me. 1. You just spent a lot of money for a GPS stabilized RC quadcopter, why in the world would you want to fly it around in 'Attitude' mode? (Oh, I forgot, for the stable 'drift-with-the-wind' video...) 2. Manual Mode? Really? Go buy a cheap quadcopter if you want to fly unassisted. 3. With all the different flying protocols (GPS, Attitude, Manual, Return to Home, IOC Normal, IOC Home Lock, IOC Course Lock) available in Naza Mode at the change of a switch position, do you think this could increase rather than decrease your chances of screwing up? Why would you want to do that? 4. What if your 'fly away' was really that you inadvertently got the Phantom in Course Lock and so it isn't responding 'correctly' to your stick inputs?? Maybe then you panic and switch to Attitude or Manual Mode scared that Return to Home won't work and further confound the issue? 5. I get that the idea of Home Lock being appealing--just pull it back toward you no matter which direction it is facing. What if you are panicking when you use this and forget to only pull back on the right stick? What if you hit something while it is returned to you sideways because that is the last orientation you had it in before using Home Lock? Why not just turn your remote off for a moment, let it Return to Home, where it actually turns and faces you and gives you a very good idea of where it is via the video feed, and then you can switch back on your remote and take control toggling the S1 switch when you feel ready? I just wonder how many 'fly-aways' and lost Phantoms occurred while the operator was in Naza Mode instead of Phantom mode. My bet would be the answer is a lot. Why not keep it simple? You may get to play with 'Attitude' mode anyway if you lose too many satellites but why would you purposefully choose to dummy down your smart machine?
