Naze32 Versions – Ultimate Guide

The different versions of the Naze:

Naze32 Rev1- Rev4
These were (obviously) the first boards made, we are not going to worry about them too much as they havn’t been around with 2014.

Naze32 Rev5
This is the board that started all the hype about 32-bit flight controllers. This has been out since early-mid 2014 and is the classic mini quad flight controller. We will not bother to list every spec of this board; instead we will list the specifications that differ from the other boards.

  • No S.Bus inversion for FrSky receivers.
  • Can do BLHeli Passthrough
  • No Flash memory for BlackBox

Naze rev 5

Naze32 Rev6
This is a board that came out September 2015, a huge issue with this version is that the 5V from your board is connected to the 5V of your receiver and ESCs. So if something were to go badly wrong, your ESCs could potentially draw power from your USB Source (your computer/Laptop), which could easily destroy the power system in your laptop from drawing too many amps. This also created a load of issues with regards to calibrating ESCs. Finally, you were unable to bind spektrum satellites using the CLI. Here is the run down of the other specifications:

  • Built in SBus Invert
  • 16Mbit Flash memory
  • Added barometer
  • No BLHeli Passthrough

Naze32 Rev 6A

This revision fixed the issue of the ESCs and Receiver being connected to the USB Rail. ESC calibration issues were also fixed. However you were still unable to bind the satellite in this revision.
-Shares almost identical specs to the Rev6
-No BLHeli Passthrough

naze rev 6 a

Naze32 Rev6B
Finally, this revision fixed the issue with binding Spektrum Sats via the flight controller. You can also do BLHeli pass through with this version.

  • Shares almost identical specs to the Rev6
  • Can do BLHeli Passthrough

So why bother getting a Naze with all these issues?

We say theres no point, after all there is a fully capable X-Racer F303 available from fpvmodel for $3 less than the MSRP of the current Naze32, this F303 has an upgraded F3 chip, a large flash memory for the black box, and is also cheaper! So there really is no point in buying a Naze anymore.
