This post will contain useful tips and useful info. I will add to it as necessary.
so stay tuned !

TRD Beholder Gimbal Controller settings

you need to hit SAVE TO FLASH in order to write settings/ changes to the chip on the beholder.

SAVE TO FILE only creates a file on your PC.
once the file is created on your pc, SAVE will update this file on the pc with any changes, so be clear on what each button does.

TIP
create different files on your PC for each change you make and name them accordingy, ie

Starting out file ( Date )
Changed A file
Changed B file
Changed C file
etc

this way its easy to LOAD FROM FILE any of these to test the changes before you finish by SAVE TO FLASH .

================================================== ===


Unbrick Your Phantom Transmitter ( after a failed firmware update)
[ Tks to Tahoe ED ]

1- open up your remote control.
2- press the small switch on the main board and turn on the power.
3 - release the switch and all should be ok... You may need to turn off and on again.
Now you can retry the firmware update.

==============================

Re-setting a Naza.

  • What if Naza-M is "dead" (not recognized by PC) after a firmware upgrade failure?

    You can connect "F1" and "F2" port with a 3-pin servo cable, then do the firmware upgrade again to restore it.
===============================

Why my Windows 7 OS cannot install the assistant software driver successfully?

  • 1. Some of the users who use WINDOWS 7 operating system may not have the usbser.sys file, please download this file and put it into C: \ WINDOWS \ system32 \ drivers, and then reinstall the driver.
  • 2. Download the usbser.sys file.

Antennas 101. Polarization, Diversity and Gain.
Here's a video Andy, from Joop Media did to illustrate some of the fundamentals of Antenna configs, looking at gain, patterns, diversity setups and polarization principles.
This is NOT an MIT tutorial or whitepaper, it is simply a video that was produced to help non-technical people to understand and visualise some of the princples of some of the antenna configs we use for FPV.
Thanks Andy.
