No data displayed, just 0's


I can't get the OSD to show any values. They are all zeroes. Iv'e done a lot of googling but havent found the key yet.

MinimOSD v 1.1 with firmware 2.0. Updated charset. Bought a cable on Ebay to use telemetry at the same time.

APM 2.6 with Arducopter 3.1.

I switch it on, it says "Waiting for mavlink". I connect the telemetry. The previous text will go away and everything seems fine, all the text is there, but it is all zero/null values. The Heartbeat icon is flashing.

I read about the Arducopter not sending values by default, that you have to set the SR3-parameters. But like someone said, that are not there!

Also, going in to MissionPlanner / setup / Optional Hardware / OSD and clicking there, does nothing.

I tried using another MinimOSD that i took off of my Octocopter, that one shows the exakt same. But on the octo, it works with another APM 2.5.

I get the feeling that the APM is not sending out the data that the Minim needs to hear?

Please help, my hair is getting grey over this one...

                  • Then there must be data coming  on the TX from APM. Your sure the split cable is correctly wired??
