"Sorry, I was referring to a Futaba 2008SB Rx which only has one SB port (horizontal below 8 pin). I did notice on my 7008SB Rx the horizontal Sbus port is for Sbus2."

"If you're using a telemetry radio and a GCS so you need to keep OSD's tx (serial output) unattached. However, if you're not using a GSC, then the OSD will REPLACE it. In that case you have to attach the tx coming from the OSD. By that…"
