The telemetry and OSD are plugged into the telemetry port (Y harness).

Telemetry works perfect, and my OSD powers on and on the screen it is saying waiting on Mavlink heartbeat.

I don't have a cable to update it and everything and was wondering were to buy one.

But I was reading that the OSD can be connecting to the main board itself to pull data??

I am currently lost and would like to have the OSD ready to rock and roll by Saturday.

Any thought or help?

Thanks
Can you explain how the Y harness is made/wired? Is it done like shown here?

Also, in Mission planner there's an enable OSD button somewhere (I think initial setup >optional hardware>osd). Try clicking it, restarting everything etc

If it doesn't help maybe try the manual parameters shown here: http://rc.velvetnut.com/index.php?title=MavlinkOSD

Here is the cable it came with



I have the 4 wire running to my telemetry and the 3 wire running to my OSD.

I tried last night going into mission planner and enabling it but it said it failed to do so.

Maybe move ground to the outer pin, on the osd side, as shown here

It shouldn't matter for most osds but it may.

Also, I don't understand where the apm side connects to... So I can't verify the connections
