Can someone take a look at my diagram....

After powering up everything works well. Only 1 problem:

Software to my OSD/eLogger works but is asking me to download latest firmware every time I open it. I'll download latest OSD/eLogger save and sign out and then when I come back to he program it will ask me to update to the latest version again & again & again...

Thank you....

So you figured out your battery problem? Good deal! I don't know what to tell you about your SW issue, other than to perhaps open up a support ticket with ET.

I need some help here please:

ET Equipment:

ET Osd Pro
Guardian stabilizer.
ET Gps V4
Elogger V4

Aircraft:
Skysurfer with 4 servos as standard.


Questions:

does anyone have a diagram that is proven I can simply use please ?
Do I need a BEC anywhere ?


Im really on a steep learning cuve with no one around my area but you kind folk !

* FPV platform is proven and works great after the normal trail and error but Im now adding this. I have it working with minimal OSD but want to get:

Hey BW, My diagram above has been looked at by several different guys and everyone says it's good. I've bench tested it and all works perfect. Have you at least flown with your FPV gear with the BASIC setup first?

I see a whole bunch of great schematics for the OSD Pro & eLoggers but none of the OSD Pro and the Flight Data Recorder Pro.

If you have any experience using those two in combination, I'd love to see your schematics or details on your system. I just posted a request here with my system details here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1671783
I'd really appreciate hearing from anyone with experience with using these two.
Thanks!
David

lost in wiring

Hi
We have purchased a fpv set containing : fat shark predator goggles, immersionrc fatshark compatible video TX, pan-tilt servo mounted ccd camera, Eagle tree e-logger v.4 + OSD, GPS sensor. we're going to install it in a Calmato.

We are TOTALLY lost in wiring all that stuff, particularly in term of batteries (bec) conecting. We use an eflite 60 amp esc (containing a BEC)

Would you be kind to guide us ? We've read seriously your schmes, but they are way too complicated for us newbies.

What would be really helpful for people like us ( newbie fpv ) would be some nice tutorial videos to help. I got mine working in 5 minutes but took it apart to install now I can't replicate the previous results !

Can someone look this over

I can't get my EE station to work, used PC software, all updated firmware. All I get is the logo in my goggles.

BEC to rx you use only +?
Instead of plugging in the GPS to the Elogger GPS port you daisy chain the GPS with the Guardian and it work.?
