Want to be a hero? We could use some help!
We could really use some help from the community with a few things:

a) We really need to get good video tutorials created showing configuration and use of our equipment. The OSD Pro, EagleEyes, Seagull, eLogger, etc. would really benefit from some good videos!

b) We'd love to have some "human" translations of our manuals. Hopefully this would be relatively easy, starting from Google translate.

c) We'll be creating a "wiki" on our website soon, that will be editable/updateable by the community. Posts to that wiki will be appreciated.

Pretty much all we can offer for these is "fame and glory," and of course the satisfaction of helping the community. Of course, your name will appear in the videos, and we'll prominently list you as the creator on our website. We'll ultimately will do all the above if there are not volunteers, but any/all help is appreciated!

If you'd like to help with this, post here or email me and we can discuss the possibilities.

Great news - thanks for the offers!

Rcimports, any video(s) you could produce showing the wiring, on-screen and PC configuration of the OSD Pro would be great!

Nexus, if you could create videos showing the connections to the eLogger, setting up of parameters to log, downloading of data, and graphing of data, that would be great also.

Please do let me know if more specific details are needed, and thanks again for the offer of help.

Hi Bill,

No problem, just want to confirm what exactly you need.

Just show how to connect everything and configure on screen parameters and get it running? Do you need commentary or just writing comments on the video?

Stuff like tuning RTH for your plane I'm not going into as it depends on your airframe/co-pilot etc.. I'll do the "Move throttle to climb...... Switch off radio" etc....

Let me know?

Hi Bill,

I'll see what I can do - question: do you want the videos with english commentary, bilingual or just text (Dion seems to think the same ;))?

I can show the following in an electric rigger (it's a boat): V3 Logger, GPS, Temp Sensor, Brushless RPM.

I can speak and write in french or write in english (not talking, sorry for the french accent).

I had some troubles converting your PDF to the editable form.
So I was constrained with the CHM format of the translated document.

Here is my effort to translate in Russian. The codepage is win-1251.
If it is ok, should I continue with others?

I will put it to the russian forum for evaluation with the natives. Ok?

This idea is super. For my part I have problems to configure correctly the module eagleeyes with regard to followed antenna. English documentation blocks me on this level.

I thus await impatiently a demonstration step by step.

Thank you in advance with those which contribute to our passion.

Sorry for delay!


Just show how to connect everything and configure on screen parameters and get it running?
Yes, thank you, that would be great!

Do you need commentary or just writing comments on the video?
Whatever works best for you. I spoken commentary is very helpful for people, and comments on the video are also very useful. Sounds good on showing the safety wizard, but not RTH.

Simon, I think english commentary would be best. That way I will have some idea of what's being said. :) Actually, if we could get both, we'll put them both up definitely.

Pierre, showing setup/use of those items in your boat would be great! Written english would be just fine.

Syberian, thanks for the translation! I've posted that on our website here. Hopefully I got the Russian description correct. :)

I've also posted the MS Word versions of all our documents here, in a huge ZIP file.

Russian modellers read the translation and found just a little mistake in the naming of the units. They treat the feets and pounds as 'english', but I called them 'imperial'. That`s all :)

You shouldn`t convert it into PDF as is. All the pictures was shifted.
As you post the MS Word versions here, I`ll convert my translation into .doc format.
Now I working at the OSD Pro manual translation (9 of 17). I`m not too fast because of working hard on the main job.


OK, I converted the airspeed sensor manual from doc to PDF with no loss. Please change it on your site!

Here is my weekly work.
It helped me much to understand your system though.
OSD Pro manual (russian translation)

#13 billpa Jul 08, 2010 01:57 PM

Thanks Oleg! I've posted both of those, and also included them on our manuals page.

#14 Syberian Jul 08, 2010 11:56 PM

The translation of the EagleEyes manual to Russian has been finished.
Huh! :p
