Gregg replied to Gregg's discussion no dx8 chnl 6 7 8 pwm passthrough output to pixhawk rc9 10 11?
"look at the attached screen prints. It shows the settings for the CAMERA. That is where servo values are "passed through".

My leds are controlled by a pwm setting which feeds into a lighting controller."

I don't want to stack the compass on top of the pixhawk.So  what's more important to be at the center, the compass or the pixhawk?

We are starting an FPV racing series and need a way to see our lap times in our OSD with goggles on.We want to:push a button on our tx that will send a pwm trigger to the rxhave the output of the tx channel signal wire go into an Arduino digital inw…

"See screen shots.
1) make sure that the rear bus has power for the servos. Pix won't feed it.
2) make sure signal wire is down.

"I have a pixhawk with a sat, so a rx to servo won't work. Also, if you want servos triggered by missions with the do_set_servo, they have to come out of the flight controller somehow."

Gregg replied to Gregg's discussion How to swith minim osd panels from a tx channel?
"I am using that also. How does minim osd "see" the channel pwm? is it passed as a mavlink heartbeat? As mentioned earlier, It must be. There is no phyical servo channel input.

Then how do you set up your pixhawk parms. And you do you test / trouble…"

Gregg replied to Gregg's discussion How to swith minim osd panels from a tx channel?
"yes, I did all that. I configured 2 panels, one with typical osd stuff and one for waypoint data. Then saved via the ftdi. I also checked that chnl7 was outputting a signal in the data screen in MP. "

I know how to change panels from flight mode in the "change panel" drop down in the minim config software.But I tried selecting chnl 7 from my tx to change panels and minim osd isn't acknowledging it. How does minim know what the channel values are?…
