  • Reman: I just half woke up, opened my eyes to check the time. and while doing this I subconsciously noticed something wrong with the shape of shadows on the other side of the room. That woke me up with a jolt!!!  It seems I've got so used to seeing my camera hex perched up on the set of draws in the corner of my bedroom that the area now looks strangely empty without it (I took it apart on Sunday to begin the rebuild into its new Y6 frame)...... And now I'm wide awake at bloody half one in the morning....... And feeling like a paranoid pillock. :(

OSD issue
« on: November 13, 2017, 15:27:00 »
Good morning,
I installed a knock-off 3DR telemetry radio to the pixhawk, and wired it to a MinimOSD with the intention of eventually splicing in the video feed from my camera.  However, in the interim, I can't get the data to come off the minim.  As far as I can tell, the radios are working; after the pixhawk is powered, the green lights on the radio go from blinking to solid, so it seems like they are connecting to each other.  When I view the info in either an app on my phone, or try it directly on the laptop, I can't get any data from it.

I did configure the minim board when I got it, including firmware update, etc.  but I fear I might have hit the reset button on it while plugging it in.  Can that wipe all info from the board, and I would have to reconfigure it?

Any other major items I should look for?

So I ended up soldering the two pads on the board (I thought they were like that when I bought the board) and when I plug the board in and turn the copter on, I can see both red leds turn on now.  No matter what I do though, I can't see anything coming out of it.

I am not sure at this point if its the minimosd or the 3dr radio that is the problem.  I took some pictures and will post what I have set up so far when I get a minute.

Well, I have decided the board must be fried.  I can see the two red led's indicating that both sides of the board are powered, but the very tiny blue led, that I think indicates data being processed, is never doing anything.  I can't currently test just the 3dr radio by itself, as I altered the connection cables, and can only attach the air radio to the minimosd board.  Thus, if its not functioning, I dont think the air radio will send any data. 

The green lights are on solid for both radios, which I think means they have connected to each other, but I don't think there is anything to send.

I am going to order another minimosd and try from there.
