  • Reman: Got stuck in traffic yesterday. After an hour I started using my phone (And an OTG cable) to look through the media files on a keyring of my old USB sticks. Found one that had the entire run of "Firefly" on it. I got through 3 episodes before the traffic started moving again....... God, That really was an amazing show.

  • mo_miah: Gav- if its a camera ship then TBS crossfire is definitely what you need, the FrSky has limited channels and telemetry options, TBS crossfire has much better features and more channels to control camera gimbals etc

  • hoverfly: I coated a couple of Slipstreams  a few years ago  It stiffened up the wing nicely .On the down side although it prevented dings when i had an high speed"arrival" it left the resin cracked. and the glass lifted slightly.  Well stuck laminate stiffens the wing and is flexible..

  • DarkButterfly: I'm doing laminate, just put my order in for some, also got some balsa wood for the side parts, had to use a kitchen knife to seperate the foam from the busted wood

  • atomiclama: Thanks, can't decide on fibre glass or laminate. Like the idea of fibre for some reason, don't know why.

  • atomiclama: Anyone fibre glass coat their wings??

  • atomiclama: @DB well you obviously need a bigger motor and ESC, as flying slower is just not possible.  ::)

  • hoverfly: If you put a couple of coats of Eze Kote on the wing before the laminate it sticks really well ..no lifting.. :smiley:

  • DarkButterfly: If it makes you feel better, I’m going to completely refurbish my falcon Evo with new balsa sides and new laminate ~~

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.
