Re: mobiDrone nano arduino OSD for MultiWii with PID config

Hi, gps data freezes when I use the osd.There seems to be a problem with multople serial ports in 2.1 on mega2560. would it be possible to send the data to osd via i2c?Maybe I can help programming it...

Re: Gyro calibration (zeroing), movement detection

we had this discussion weeks ago. gyro calibration is influenced by temperature. so automatic repeat can lead to an unflyable copter. especially if you can arm it while it is still trying to calibrate.

Imho everybody should manually calibrate the gyro after powering up anyway. No toy!

Re: mobiDrone nano arduino OSD for MultiWii with PID config

Ha,
got it!

I found out, that the GND between FPV TX and cam differs from the GND of the FC,
I have a resistance of 2Ohm between those GNDs.

I wonder why the FPV TX is doing this...

Is it save to interconnect the GND on the FPX TX?

I have 4,6V from the Serial Ports 5V pin :-(
2Ohm between GND of RX and GND on serial port.

Re: mobiDrone nano arduino OSD for MultiWii with PID config

Hi,

thank you for the hint.

I connected the OSD to ground between camera and FPV TX, the TX is connected directlys to the LIPO.

I get 5V from the serial power connection on the flyduino, if I understood the previous post correctly, this should be the problem (?)

in the last devs there is an option to reroute the outputs. but it not hard to do it in the standard 2.1 if you look into the def.h

but if it is a board specific thing this should be made into a define and comitted into the shared trunk.
