If you are referring to an antennatracker then yes, the ImmersionRC TinyTelemetry will work with any OSD, just means adding a small module to your plane which will transfer telemetry over the audio channel and use the ImmersionRC EzAntennaTracker on the ground for tracking.

If you mean a universal system that works with everything, there's no such thing at this moment. The various (2) antenna tracking solutions commercially available are not compatible.

Cheers,

Sander.

Thanks Sander
Tiny Telemetry is what I need.
So what is the interface to the servos to track the plane? Also since the OSD I have uses a gps ant. would I be able to share the TT GPS ant?
Are there any pictures of a complete working system?
Thanks
Mark

There's also the Dakar/Lynx (Lince) system that will work with anything.

You can turn off the Dakar OSD text and just use the tracking function.

But you have to build it yourself.

Dakar; Airbourne component.

It taps on any existing OSD GPS, and deliver NMEA stream over audio at the ground, with optional antenna tracker.

hi, i am actually testing which is believed to be the newest version MFD tracker, it works with my 10hz gps, i am impressed by the heavy duty pan/tilt, it's well made and do not need any assembling, it saves time and increase safety

I am working on a DIY antenna tracker project where no GPS is needed. I haven't had the time to finish development yet as I am in the middle of moving to a new house. When I do finally get it done ant tested, there will be a how to on building it.
