thank you !!!

by the way, can you tell me if im right:
the BEC from the ESC goes in the EloggerV4 throttle, then on the OSD it goes from the throttle out to the Receiver? Leaving the throttle in empty on the OSD
To answer your question the connector of your ESC goes to the "throttle out" connector on your OSD. The throttle connection from your receiver goes to the "throttle in" connector on your OSD. It does not connect to your eLogger at all.

Please DO NOT use the BEC of your ESC to power this. They are way too low current for supporting this system and your other devices. Plus it will introduce tons of "noise" on the wiring and your system will have serious problems until it overheats and shuts down in flight leaving you with a very expensive mess to clean up.

Bite the bullet and spend the money on a good low noise stand alone BEC. Then clip or remove the red wire on your ESC/throttle connector to disable the ESC BEC. If you can spare the room/weight a second battery for powering your system will work too and eliminate any possible "switching noise" being introduced. You will save yourself a lot of grief.

Best of Luck,
