I was positioning the 3DR GPS board on my frame when I noticed the red LED light on the GPS board was going on and off. I took a look at the connector on the board and the solder joints look good,…Continue
"Hi Daryal could you please attach the param config file as I have just bought some 4s batteries and this would make changing a lot simpler. Even if the parameters are slightly different it will give me a starting point at least. Much…"
"Bret, the video was using the GoPro as the onboard camera source fed through the OSD, and then downlinked to a DVR. So in answer to your questions, the OSD information was not imposed on the video captured by the GoPro."
"Daryl: I want to make sure I understand what you are showing. It may be the simplest if I simply state what I need to do. We need to capture the OSD data onto the recording of the GoPro. Is this what you are doing with the…"

"Yes, thanks Nick. The GPS cable has the same connector on each end so I switched it around between the GPS board and the APM. Wiggling the wire now at the APM side knocks out the GPS while the other end at the GPS is solid. So this…"
"I wonder if its the metal pin on the connecting wire being loose and when you push down on the wire it loses contact. Might be worth getting another connector and trying it out. If it happens again then you can focus on the boards female connector…"
I was positioning the 3DR GPS board on my frame when I noticed the red LED light on the GPS board was going on and off. I took a look at the connector on the board and the solder joints look good, but when I wiggle the wires at that connector the GPS seems to power on and off. Has anyone else noticed this? I’m wondering for those people who have botched missions due to GPS issues might be experiencing this same problem. The board and wire harness are brand new so I’m wondering if I should…See More
"It’s good that you have isolated the problem to the ESC. It is probably unlikely that the APM is sending a slower signal specifically to that ESC because I am assuming when you moved the ESC to a different motor you meant that the ESC…"
