Balsabuster, great video link, that tracker must give added confidence. loved the landing and the view od course. Was it an FPV flight ? Great to see you have success with the ET stuff, its said to be tough to make work.

My experience with it so far is that, while it certainly is more complicated than some of the other OSD's out there, it's only as complicated as you make it. That is, you don't need all the sensors but you have the option to use them. You don't need RTH but you have the option to use it.

In terms of getting things to work, I've found as long as I follow the manual it works perfectly.

Good job, very stable. How about following them while they run ? Maybe flying sideways at their height and follow them ?

900 mHz. My previous experiments showed that an 8 dbi patch antenna works best the lower you can get it. Just tried it elevated this time for the heck of it
