Question
OSD level indicator tilted randomly

Hi Guys, thought I would post this here as the multirotor forum is playing up. Ignore the title, somehow its grabbed an old question.

I have installed the new firmware but find the OSD doesnt switch on till after 1 minute if my Hexa is fired up from being off for a while. I can get the OSD to come on quickly if I first connect a battery, let it go through the sequence and then disconnect the battery. Then I can connect a battery and the OSD comes on at the end of the beginning sequence etc.

windfou, the HF team arent really on this forum very often. They have moved their support to the multirotor forums. I just posted it here because the multirotor forums were not working well one day. I will post again on the other forums soon.

A question I have, why do you need gps and how will you use it?

Stacky.....I will check the OSD issue out later today. I hadn't noticed it before.

The OSD does always have a delay mainly because it waits for good sensor data for turning on. Not sure why it would come back up quickly after a disconnect.

No, not me. I am finding the AH works well enough for me when taking stills with my Hexa and Im trying to be careful when flying LOS so I am always ok to land. I might get GPS once HF has their software work on a Mac
