Tbh I've been really busy, not had much time to fly anything and with conditions being crap, hopefully in the new year I'll have some new projects on the go, mostly to do with HAM radio, will certainly fly again soon. FTR I hate FB too   :D Merry Christmas

1 small step for me ...

Previous topic - Next topic


had my first attempt at FPV today , with mixed results .

my  fpv quad  is a modified dead cat  with 900kv motor 20amp esc
APM2.5 minimosd 200ma boscam tx and sony 600(I think) line cam .

when doing the test non fpv flight the video interference was very bad . I disconneted the osd then the picture was good if a little dark but I think that was the due to black sky.
Anybody any idea why osd caused interference ?

next step was to try and fly fpv I got about 6 inches from the ground and bottled it.
so decided to take off  manually and put the quad into loiter then take over fpv with homemade goggles .
went well for 2-3 minutes then paniced a little, so called it a day and land in manual .

But all in all I felt a good start . One thing is for sure no one should try fpv with out a spotter . My wife spotted for me today and it workout well .


Could be a grounding issue with the OSD perhaps?

When I started to FPV that was exactly how I took off at first, you will soon build the confidence to take of/land with the goggles on. Of course there is no right or wrong way - just do what suits you best ~~



you need to use a  l-c filter to remove the interference..
dont grow up,just buy bigger toys!!!!

hi and thanks for the reply , I am running a L-C Filter .
Like I said before without osd I got a solid picture even at 600m (that as fare as I went ) only with osd bid the interference kick in .

any other thoughts welcome



Is it the minimOSD you are running? How are you powering the OSD?
One circlip short of a quadcopter.
 1 lobe short of an antenna.

yes its the minimosd , I have it powered from the APM side only with the jumper shorted .
it worked fine in the garden yesterday , but not at the field today ...



Alien homemade , 330 homemade wonderful little thing oh and the 250 mini that is wonderful


Worth having a read about the minimOSD power issues;


http://www.multi-rotor.co.uk/index.php?topic=3014.msg24291#msg24291 - how i did mine.

It may be that you are powering the minimOSD with the 2 different sides separately, but only have 1 side shielded.
