GPS coordinates will also display when the OSD detects RC link lost.

I'm about to setup the AP/RTH part and have a question about Cruise Altitude and Altitude limit - and the difference between them.

In my setting (default) "cruise altitude" is 200 and "Altitude limit" is 100 = 300
I guess this means that the plane will try to hold an altitude at about 300

I can see that when the altitude is below "Cruise altitude" + "Altitude limit" (300), the plane will climb using the "Set Cruise throttle" setting, and if the altitude is above "Cruise altitude" + "Altitude limit"(300) the plane will descent using the "Set throttle failsafe" setting. I hope this is right ?

But what would the difference be, if I do this "Cruise altitude" 100 and "Altitude limit" 200 = 300 ?

Again we have a total altitude of 300 - does it also mean that the plane try to hold an altitude at about 300, just like in the default setting ?

Couple questions. I just got mine in. I can't test it just yet though. But I have a 5volt camera that I use. It's powered through a 5v regulator. Any idea how I would go about setting that up? Thanks!

Is this what you are looking for ?

RVOSD, camera and video Tx power management:
The OSD will supply power to the camera and video transmitter. If the voltage selection jumpers are set to 12V RVOSD will route the battery with the highest voltage to power the device (camera or video Tx associated with the selected jumper). So if the main battery voltage is more than 3S(12V), user will have to change the disable jumper to isolate the main battery and provide a 3S battery on the auxiliary battery input port.
When the voltage selection jumpers are set to 5V RVOSD will supply power from an internal 5V regulator. However if any of the jumpers are set to 12V you have to follow the above recommendations. Only when both jumpers (camera and video Tx) are set to 5V the OSD can work with any battery combinations in the 2S-6S range.

This are few examples of jumper positions:
Main battery enabled, 12V VTx, 12V Cam: http://rangevideo.com/forum/attachme...8&d=1315418224
Main battery disabled, 12V VTx, 12V Cam: http://rangevideo.com/forum/attachme...9&d=1315418238
Main battery enabled, 12V VTx, 5V Cam: http://rangevideo.com/forum/attachme...0&d=1315418254

Ah okay cool. So I don't even need to use the regulator I have. It's a 12v TX and 5V Camera. Perfect! So it's okay to remove the shrinkwrap and those two boards? So I can change the jumper?

Yes, you can easily take those two boards apart, and change jumper settings.

Here is a easy one... 2 pins coming from my DL rx and 3 pins going into my rvosdv5. How do I hook it up?

I have a problem right now

I can't remember how to enter the inflight menu using my TX. I know that I have to switch to the debug screen, but from there, I can't remember what to do next with my TX to get access to the menu

-------

I just found the solution my self - Enable autopilot was set to No-Falsafe !

First you have to make sure you have the Enable autopilot menu item is set to Yes-RTH.
Then you need to have a 3 position switch assigned to the auxiliary input channel. It is explained here: http://rangevideo.com/forum/showthre...progress...%29
