Question

Using fma copilot ii with OSD-Pro?


I have the FMA copilot II installed on my camera plane (not the CPD4).

Is it possible to connect the cpii sensor to the osd-pro for artificial horizon line? the cpii sensor cable is 3-wire, and terminates in a standard servo-type plug.

Thanks

Hi, yes that will soon be possible. We are soon releasing the "FPV Expander" add-on board, which will support the X/Y and Z CPII sensors for AHI.

Hi Jorge,

We're making good progress on it, but more work remains. I hope to post additional information soon.

Hi everyone.
Do I get it right that if I want to use CoPilot II with ET OSD the connection should be as follows:
Elev from RX to OSD than to CoPilot
Rudd from RX to OSD than to CoPilot
Ailerons from RX to CoPilot (because I need to use 2 channels on ailerons)

But in this case seems like plane in RTH mode can only do flat turns.
Is it ok?

No, presently only the first version, (analog) of the FMA IR sensors is supported. The CPII, (digital) will be supported with the release of the FPV expander mentioned above.


Have a good one,

Yes Modsley, thats how I have mine set up now with the Co-Pilot II. And it does make my glider do flat turns, but it does also get it back home.

Hi Bill,

Just curious if i can use the fma copilot 2 with the osdpro for wing leveling. I know that i need the new fpv expander board to be able to use AHI, as the new sensors for the cp2 are digital. I just want to use it as a wing leveler for now until the fpv expander board comes out. Is this possible? If you could pm me as well, I have another question for you regarding the osd pro, which I would rather not post

And now, May 2013, did you came up with a way to connect the FMA Co-pilot ii (or the XY and Z sensors) to the OSD pro?

The XY and Z sensors looks like standard digital connections.

Thank you in advance.
Henri
