"Hi Ashley, Iam having the same problem. The OSD works fine when the transmitter is switched off, but as soon as i switch it on I just get the warning messages. Iam using a Futaba 2.4 FF7 - so no channel 8. Have you any suggestions?   Thanks"

"It has all the sensors already on the board, I'm using an RVGS for tracking and telemetry... It just works and really well at that, it also has a really awsome OSD (F16 Hud) with a proper artificial horizon and not using characters..…"

"But... you can't get any of the APM data to the RVOSD, right? Are you running an additional set of sensors to feed into it?"

"I gave up trying. My hexcopter runs arducopter with the 2.5 board without telemetry and I now use RVOSD5 with the RVGS and HKGS for my planes which is flawless and graphically has a far superior OSD."

Ashley replied to Elliot's discussion Only getting warnings on MinimOSD
"OK I figured it out really quickly. Its to do with mode switching. not sure why but for me i had something set to CH8 and i must have Ch8 set to mode switch in minim. So change that or your transmitter and you should be set. hope this helps."

Sticks tilted forward in stabilise

Hi,I've got a bit of an issue.The problem is that in Stabilise mode when I've been flying forward it sometimes (twice now) sticks and regardless of my input nothing happens until after a few seconds (maybe 3 or 4) all of a sudden it's back but now slow oscillating seemingly over compensating.Any ideas? It's cost me two rebuilds so far as the oscillation is unrecoverable once it starts, I've tuned down gain in Stabilise P and this doesn't happen normally even when I flick it about.How could it…See More
