Well I just placed my order for RVOSD and the anti vibe mount I have read pages 40-70 from the 70 pages there are on this thread but Im going to have a few questions!

I'm flying with EzUHF, so I guess the best way to connect up for control would be PPM? how many wires are required for this connection?

Also naturally I want to see RSSI I read something many pages back about digital rssi from ezuhf rx being supported, what information is displayed? I assume not as much as I would see on ezosd (readings for both antennas on diversity rx and also overall link quality)

Has anyone managed to squeeze the RVOSD and anti vibration mount into the rear compartment of the Zephyr2? I know its going to be a tight fit but I want to keep the batteries in the front compartment.

Heading off to start reading the manual now but if anyone has answers for these questions that would be great!

Thanks Ben

Yes, the display limit is for seven units: 9 999 999 mts/feets. But internal calculations limit is ~10^-44.85 to ~10^38.53. Limited to 32 bits on some areas of the code. −2 147 483 648 to 2 147 483 647

You won't regret it, your only hurdle may be overcoming the vibrations in a gasser.

Goodluck

Gasser? I never tested it on gas powered airplanes. You will need a very good work on removing vibrations.
Make sure to use this or something similar: http://www.rangevideo.com/index.php?...303516da5232a6

Alex, is there anyway you can update rvosd to switch to miles after a set distance? I went out 9 miles and had to have some one calculating feet to miles for me. Very annoying. Other than that I love my rvosd and rvgs.

How do you make RVOSD fly sharper turns and smaller circles when in RTH mode? RTH is working fine it just turns very slowly and when flying over the home position the circles are far too big and it lets the plane go too far behind myself out of video range.

Already ordered it.
The real problem is going to fly without
Rpm,cylinder head temp & airspeed.
I didn't see on your site as to where to buy the external temp probe?

I only have vibe problems at a low rpm, & it is at an rpm that I don't fly at.

I wonder if I can get the video out from my eagle tree & put that signal into the rvosd. That way I might be able to have my airspeed, cht, & rpm. Think it could work?

Any idea what would cause the RTH function to try to RTG (ground)? Threw the plane into a dive almost immediately to the point of inverted.

Plane is a ZII fwiw.

Did you do the rc wizard? Also is the AHI "wobbling" around? Do you have a video?
