Emani, thanks.
I will check it. At first glance it says (- 1), but what does it mean? - (negative) he doesn't have any (somebody preordered 1), or just one in stock.

Thanks Sanders, that what I needed to know.

Hi Sander,

Just one more question to make sure I'm doing right when updating EzOSD. On attached pict. of windows, EzOSD Tools give me 3 files for updating: file EzOSD.fw - this is for ver. 0.96. file EzOSD_v1.00.fw - ver. 1.00 and one more - FontLoader.fw. Question is - should I use this last file for updating or is it for something else? Actually, i have never opened it for updating. Am I right? Thanks.

He normally leaves the stock items -1 when he is awaiting stock items to come up, contact Mr. Pibb around here to see if he can attend your needs.

I strongly recommend him.

IL76MD,

You'll only need the 'EzOSD_v1.00.fw' file, the fontloader is not required as your EzOSD already comes with the fonts preinstalled.

Cheers,

Sander.

Thank you, I have talked with nghobbies last night and they already sent me (just in one hour) a new EzOSD for replacing broken one. Wow, I have never seen somebody reacted so extremely fast as nghobbies. I'm feeling like i have a deal with Boeing supportive team. Probably next time I'll see Mr. Pibb. Thanks

Do these new EzOSDs come with the 10Hz GPS?

Duo2400: Compact 2400MHz A/V Diversity Rx

When will the Duo2400 be back in stock? I rather buy the Duo2400.

I have also been looking on this one http://www.draganfly.com/dragan-eye-...receivers.php5 so I hope not that I need to wait too long for the Duo2400 to be back in stock.

Just ordered my EzOSD, but was 15 short to buy the antenna tracker at the same time Bummer!

I think mine is coming with the 10Hz GPS also

*New 10 Hz GPS receiver is included*

Should be here in a week i guess, all i need now is the ez tracking antenna and i should be able to milk out as much range with my poxy 10mw video link!

On a quick side note, whats the best patch antenna for your tracking system?

8dbi or more?

Looking forward to getting this, i have pondered over for it for a long time and i should of hit the pay now button ages ago!

I just use a GP patch at the moment, ive got a 14db patch but its pretty heavy and my pan/tilt might not be able to take it I think...

GP is only 6db.

Thanks, i was just looking at a 8dbi antenna, but i will keep my options open

I take it i dont need the EZtracker to get live Google earth video as i assume that its read from the encripted audio channel?

So all i would do is install the EZ software and plug my audio jack into the Line-in on the laptop and configure the volume to get the best signal?

something like that i figure?

I use a 14db patch with the recommended pant/tilt setup from the antennatracker manual. No problems what so ever. But keep in mind that you might need a good tripod that can handle the extra weight and movement

Edit: For a 10mw system you really won't have the need for the tilt function. But pan would be a must.. that is what i think...

If you could wait a bit, I know of someone who is working on a neat Pan / Tilt stuff to work together with this system.
