Wonderful explanation of how IOC works, including the difference between course-lock and home-lock!

After watching the video a few times, this is what Iv got
With a 3 position switch set to OFF(fwd) - COURSE LOCK(mid) - HOME LOCK(bkw)

Course lock is set automatically after 30 seconds when you plug the copter in. (green led flashes quickly)

Course lock reset without rebooting the naza = Flick the 3 pos switch from OFF(fwd) to COURSE LOCK(mid) 4-5 times then back to OFF(fwd)
The green LED will flash quickly indicating a new course lock has been saved.


Home lock is set automatically after GPS lock and throttle up. (red led might flash once)

Home lock reset without rebooting the naza = Flick the 3 pos switch from COURSE LOCK(mid) to HOME LOCK(bkw) 4-5 times, then back to OFF(fwd)
The green LED will flash quickly indicating a new home lock has been saved.

Remember the only time you need to reset the course lock is if you change the direction in which you are standing.
And the only time you need to reset the home lock is if you want to move from where you first plugged in the copter.

If this is all to complicated, you can just unplug the copter, move to your new destination then plug it in again.

Hope this helps everyone :)

When I got my Naza(GPS), I played with this a few times. I must say if you are use to flying (Nose in), and use-to the orientation, IOC can actually mess with you.

For a beginner this is awesome, for Pro flyer not so much.

If I get disoriented, I just switch of the transmitter and it comes home :)

@Hennis, agreed :) all the heli RC guys say the IOC is a gift from the devil! lol

My nose in skills are still soft and plyable so I like it :)

The nice thing with the Home lock is its only active 10m outside home location.

@robone, the POI feature is awesome, but only available on the wookong, perhaps the next firmware update for the naza will have it. Nice to have on the OP :)

Hennis i have the same problem, once you are used to flying nose in it really messes with your brain. But it is amazing function and is invaluable with a hex if you loose a motor where the craft starts rotating horizontally. you basically fly it back as normal.

Was photographing a rehabilitated property using the x650 hex, it was a small property compared to what we usually do, including a 30m buffer zone the heli would fly about 380m far and 125m high, from the images we will get a 3d image of the property to show water run off, i have never regarded the ioc function because im used to flying nose in, but at that distance if something went wrong without the homelock things could get interresting. That function definately has its place.

I find the home position reset only works once and also if you haven't used GPS in that flight.
I might be doing something wrong though.
