Worse case, I'll cut the wires as you said.
Why does that go to a P site? (And they are NEVER going to make babies doing it that way - only lawyers)

Is this OSD only a firmware update from having an attitude indicator? They have the pitch / roll data, it should not be a hard jump to a ADI?

Just ordered one from http://www.fpvmodel.com/cyclops-stor...0bf0ff4ef921bd with free shipping.

Got a confirmation email of the order withing 15 minutes, another about 1.5 hours later that the order had been packed and a third in about another 1.5 hours saying the order had been shipped with the tracking number.

If the emails are an indication of their customer service, then they've found a new, regular customer! I anticipate that it will be here in about 2 weeks. Keeping fingers crossed...

P.S. Am counting on that set-up guide, so get crackin'!

Picking up a used one from a fellow FPV flyer. Where can I get a replacement and preferably longer GPS cable or do most make their own?

Searched the thread and could not find the answer.

I also am a follower of the thread from the beginning and have thankfully gained some very important knowledge from reading and following the tips posted here.

In short, to everyone, keep asking questions, no matter how they may seem to be. The answers may help someone else also, including the product designers.

I know its quite a statement
don't want to hurt people
but the only thing I want to point at is people start with fpv flying without having experience in the hobby rc planes
that scares me (for safety reasons)

a lot of problems with the storm or a lot of other FPV electronics are customers faults but if you read the topic it looks like this OSD is bad but I think its quite good for the price

I did try this OSD and I can tell you that even if it dont have every options it does the job.
Bring the airplane back, home arrow, RSSI, voltage.
GPS cable look cheap and is not shielded but plain works ! (I did twist them together)
I even use the stock gains. and the firmware seem stable.

We can have complains of many things but this just work.

E-mail Fu at FoxtechFPV and ask him for a replacement, he kindly included a 15cm cable with my latest order, free of charge

Hello,
I have two Storms that failed. Both had the 5v on the GPS. Second one I burned the fine circut board. Believe this was my error changing cameras from a microcamera to a board camera.

I did attempt to do the soldering of the wire to the boards as pictured. Did not work.

But I have another one on the way. Hope the third time is the charm. I really like having the buttons to access the features.
