Solved, moved Vtx further away from GPS module and hey presto,... locked in with full signal all flight.

(hope I explained this well enough, as I have no idea how to post the pictures).
Thank You for Your time,

this is the correct direction,

Problem with gyro calibration

Hi I have my OSD-STORM in tests, and everything works fine, but to me one incombeniente susedido, by giving a gyro reset does not respond, is flashing "ok", and never stops ....
This happened to me yesterday on my last flight, which was adjusting the gain in altitude, for the correct functioning of AP / RTH
 
also need to recalibrated previous to each flight,???

to someone did this happen,,????

clarify, is installed in Wing Zephyr ZII (made ​​in house)
flying perfect and vices,
of course, calibrate gyro horizontally, and very immobile

Im not sure your English is clear enough to fully understand, but I personally reset the gyro before each flying session. I also have large temperature swings from indoors to outdoors so it is somewhat mandatory.

I have noticed when I reset the gyro, it locks the screen and my up and down buttons do not work until the gyro is reset. If the plane is moving at all, and is not perfectly still it takes about 15-20 seconds. If it is perfectly still it takes about 10 seconds.

Also, if you have everything adjusted, then mess with the trims in-flight, you need to land and re-center the servos in the software. If you adjust trims enough the "vibration" signal on screen will display and not turn off, not allowing you to use your PA or RTH mode.... I hope this helps, if not please clarify your problem again. Thanks!

Have an issue with my setup of the storm. The functions are working well except the alt hold.. I'm using a flying wing and while the response to roll gives me a good deflection on the surfaces, it is very small with pitch movement. Thus, when i operate PA mode the ability to hold the alt is poor unless i am almost completely level when i turn it on. Roll stability and roll control on RTH and PA is good, just pitch control doesn't seem up to it.

Any thoughts?

Standard gains (70% on both), 30 degree roll max and 10 degree pitch max.

I am assuming you tried the max settings for pitch gain and degrees deflection already?

I don't understand. You say that you don't have enough deflection on the control surfaces in pitch? Have you tried to increase the pitch gain and max pitch? If so, what happened?
You need to be more clear in your post on what you've tried to troubleshoot. Post a video so we can see.

Iskess......

Have you pulled the trigger on a Storm? I was going to watch and see how things went for a while.

please try set 80%gain and 12-15 degree max on pitch.

Even better, I talked a newbie at my local flying field into getting it. I'll be helping him set it up and I'll get some first hand experience with it. I have an RVOSD I still need to hook up to try.

I have no problems with OSDStorm,,
just caught my attention, which to calibrate the gyro, the flying wing while very quiet, never stopped flashing "ok" spent more than 20 seconds. and I had to disconnect the LIPO .. to reset ... only a detail I wanted to comment ...

good flights ..
