Curious to where you placed the RVOSD on your zep2? And did you use the anti vibe mount?

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.
Marc.
For external temperature sensor you can use this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2pcs-LM34DZ-...item415a681e2a
You can use a regular servo extension to plug it to RVOSD.

For airspeed you can use this: https://store.diydrones.com/Kit_MPXV...v7002dp-01.htm
But will require the 5.07 patch for it. I hope to release it on 1-2 weeks.

You will need the pickit2 programmer for firmware update.

RPM is not available, at least not yet.

About pluging the ETOSD output to RVOSD input that will make for a very interesting test . It should work but IDK for sure.

Video? If it is the one on Rangevideo forum the real cause of the crash was RTH actually not engaging:

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.
Already done, will be available on patch 5.07

IMU didn't initialized properly at startup. On this case you have to do a hard reset. Cycle power.

I read the last half of this thread .. is it something to do with plugging in the power to the OSD before the main power to the plane (rx)? or vice versa

Or maybe I am way off track ...
