Where have you placed the Vtx and gps on your plane?

I have a X8 and the GPS is in the fuselage under the foam hatch. The VTX is out on the wing about 8-10".

timtimtim,
What you could do is run a test to see if your camera or vtx is interfering. Just unplug yuor camera or vtx for the first min. or so and plug it back in and see if you have sats.

Okay, do you have a lowpassfilter on the vtx?

Heres a question for the RF techs. Im planning on using a 2.4Ghz 18Db patch and a Lawmate Rx with my RV tracker. Do I need 50ohm or 75ohm impedance coax? I intend using only about 200mm. Will it make a difference over this length?

You need 50 ohm cable. Yes, it could make a difference as the cable otherwise would act like an impedance transformer. Not likely that something would happen since this is the receiving side of things, but you get better reception with a matched impedance.

Check for an apropriate RG58 or RG316 coax cable. They can be bought off ebay for not much money.

No filters, no torroids. It could be your VTX, the freq's are close. I would try torroids or additional spacing. Definetly check if it get connect without camera or VTX.

The GPS battery could be bad as well resulting in long cold start up every time.

IMU is much better. Not affected by sunlight, clouds or ground terrain. If you change the orientation of the board, you also have to change the setting in the menu. Can't remember exactly which one.
You can also check the manual on the RVOSD support site.
