"I get that occasionally as well and do believe it is a bug.  It's not there every time and you learn to ignore it when it does show up I suppose."

"I know it says you can choose the channel in the CT, but only Ch8 works.  So you have to output to Ch8 instead of 7 and then you should be set.  The CT should be set to Ch8"

"Hi Glenn, can you perhaps tell me how you got EZUHF RSSI/LQ to work on APM/MavlinkOSD? I don't get any reading on the OSD screen.  I set up LQ out on Ch7 of my EZUHF Rx, and run PPM out on Ch1. I've tried picking up the LQ through the…"

mP1 replied to Todd Nelson's discussion How to setup RSSI with EZUHF and APM 2.0 with Minim OSD
"Theres a line inside the minimosd source where the rssi is read. Change that to read from your desired channel and everything will work. The remainder of the code will pickup the rssi settings type parameters. The only thing that has changed is the…"

Todd Nelson replied to Gábor Zoltán's discussion Adding extra functions to MinimOSD
"Hi Marco, Thanks for the details.  Am I correct in thinking I need to modify the SR1 parameters? Does it effect the cpu in the APM 2.5 if these are modified? Can I modify SR1 to the same as SR3, will this work?  Thanks for the…"
