"Yeah right. He's so responsive. That's why this thread has people complaining for the last three years."

"Look at the dates on the posts you've responded to. It's been this way for years. This is still a money making hobby for these guys. They don't care at all...except for 3DRobotics, for whole this is a very profitable scam for fleecing the public. Bu…"

"China. ReadyToFlyQuads makes a variant that's good for external monitoring of info (analog Arduino pin breakouts) but the owner takes weeks to ship the simplest thing.

GoodLuckBuy or Banggood.

And of course 3DRobotics sells it for the criminal pri…"

"It's a piece of crap, design wise. It's probably salt in the wound that everyone except 3DR sells it for about $10.

Once it is working, though, it doesn't fail in flight. Never. Very robust. But good luck getting it working without burning a few."

"I do not want to start one of those back-and-forth nasty FPV arguments, so please take this gently. With the diagram you provide, so long as each part is doing its job correctly, there is no way you can fry a MinimOSD. No way. It has one power line…"

"It doesn't make sense, what you're claiming. The video in and out pins are connected. There is no mysterious gate between them. The video overlay is additive. The only way to get a black screen is to not have a common ground on the video signal."

"The thing is, even if you set fire to the chip, there should be video pass through. Not a black screen."

"You probably don't have a common ground between the board, the camera, and the transmitter. There is almost no possibility that the chip is bad."

"Thank you Jani. Hopefully you will have the IOBoard back in stock soon as well. Will you?
Your communication here has always been very fast, even when your company experiences some communication problems. Thank you for that.

DJ Kinney replied to Parke @ ParkeFlyer's discussion Test the minimOSD without an APM
"I actually wanted to know the answer to this. Too bad no one answered you. I'm currently sitting here with two MinimOSDs--a jDrones and a 3DRobots and neither one works. The 3DR I think I destroyed by overheating it when soldering the jumpers, and t…"

"I want to share what I've learned and also get some advice before I proceed with the next step.

It was always my intention to power my entire video setup with a single battery to keep it all isolated and clean. I have a small 200mw transmitter, a g…"

DJ Kinney replied to William Burkert's discussion 3DRobotics Customer Support is horrible in ArduCopter User Group
"I regret dealing with them. I have started to send emails every day to "help" but what I'm probably going to do is issue a credit card charge-back and claim that it appears to be some kind of internet fraud. What a horrible business model. And frank…"

DJ Kinney replied to Shyam Balasubramanian's discussion 3D Robotics/ udrones customer service issues!
"Communication remains shockingly horrible. The last post was written in June. This is late July. I really regret buying anything from a company that doesn't care enough to respo d to my emails. The automated response (two business days!) Is sarcasti…"
