Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Can you pm me a screen shot of what you mean

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Had another negative encounter, it's been a few years since the last one, just an uneducated ******, going on about drones being illegal yada yada yada.    :-/
Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

DB that just means you have shed loads of props in the first place ;-)

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

APM, Minim OSD and 3dr telemetry

I';ve just switched out my crius aiop for a new rctimer arduflyer 2.5.2. Really pleased with the improved stability in loiter etc. Still some tuning to be done I think but generally I can see a noticeable improvement. I have an external compass coming in the post to add to it too although I may not bother as it performs well without.

I have just one problem tho. My minimOSD won';t pick up the heartbeat/mavlink. It just sits there waiting for mavlink on the screen. If I then connect the mission planner via 3dr it works OK and the mavlink gets picked up by the minimOSD and all the data appears on the screen.

Should I connect both the RX and TX to the minim? I only have the RX connected at the moment as I read thats the method if your using 3dr telemetry as well.

Only trouble then is the data is all zeros and the horizon doesn';t move. The mavlink pulses and the timer could ts but that';s it.

how do you have it wired up rob ???

I ony run 3 wires to my osd off the UART/0 header pins TX/5v/ground to rx/5v/ground on the osd  and 3dr is plugged into its on dedicated plug separately

Ahh. That';s an idea. I have spliced the 3 osd wires into the telemetry wires. So have both the osd and the 3dr connected to the telemetry port. This is how I had it wired with crius with no issues. I shall try your method. Cheers mate.
