-Have you tried altering the voice alerts volume level?
Im using the LM 2.4GHz vtx when altering the voice alerts volume level to 4 it's get worst the lower the number the better it get but its still there.
Not sure how I would plug my tv to the video out on the osd pro?

I notice the Elogger get really warm almost 50C when the 4s is plug in.

To connect your viewing device (TV) with the OSD pro, you just have to make a custom harness (two wires cable, preferably shielded) that on one end it will have a servo connector and on the other end an RCA connector (assuming your TV accepts RCA A/V input). Connect via the harness the ground pin of the OSD to the outer ring of the RCA connector, and the video signal out pin of the OSD to the center pin of the RCA connector.

Regarding the heat issue, are you using the supplied Y cable to log in throttle position? If not, go ahead and connect it between your rc rx and the e-logger, and it might reduce the temperature of the voltage regulators of the e-logger, since it provides back-up power to the e-logger.

Let us know how it goes.

Stavros

hi freshmint,
you need an old video- or audio-cable and a servo-plug.
the inner lead is "signal" the shielding is "ground". see the photo how it is done.
donīt worry about my red plug, iīve recycled an old audio-cable

cheers Thomas

That's exactly what I meant Thomas! Thanks for posting the photo.

Sometimes typing is faster than taking a pic

Best regards,

Hotdog,

I have had that exact issue before and would think it is because your BEC cannot provide enough current to supply the servos, therefore the voltage drops and causes the Dragon Link receiver to reset, hence the 2 second delay. My buddy garris2 and I confirmed this just the other night with a multimeter across the R/C power as it was ocurring. I solved the issue by powering the R/C with a SBEC sepatrate to the ESC. The issue is worse if you run 4S like I do.

Also when I give a aileron on, elevator or throttle command there is almost a full 2 seconds before the servos or motor move for the first time. It once the get moving everything is fine untill I stop moving them then if I try to Move then again there is again a 2 second delay.has anyone else expericed this ?

I too am running a 4s setup. thanks I will use a sepatrate bec and see if that helps. I dont know if i will find out if it fixed the problem though because when i got home the issue wasn't there. weird
