"Got it working. I would recommend the most current Minimosd config software/firmware to be easier to locate on the web.  There are some variants out there, and in my case, they caused some problems.  "

Minimosd

I purchased the Minimosd from 3D Robotics and everything is wired and works between my quad and FPV.  My problem is when I go to the Minimosd-Extra to configure the panel layout on my PC.  I keep getting the following message.  "Failed to Upload New Config Data".  After that message, I get the following.  "Eeprom Mapping Updated".  I am using the 3DR FTDI cable.  There is power when connected and I see the Minimosd led blink when I select the COM port.  Need some help.  Thanks.See More
