I would not mind one of those. I am maxing the g3/g4 100amp at 108amps on the Zephyr.

The best I can do with this wing for now

Once I get more parts and longer servo wires in my other wing will be fitted out nicer.



I have actually a question. When I turn off my transmitter my RVOSD does not detect it being lost. What's the proper way to do this? Glitch detection? On throttle??

Really? wonder why they went to a lower amperage rating? What was the voltage range for this sensor?

hey guys, i must be missing something really simple, i am using my Turnigy 9X flashed with custom firmware and chainlink LRS, i got to the ppm screen and the rc configuration, its all working fine, i can enter menu with my 3 way switch and also set failsafe with a throttle cut switch, BUT i can't get the servos to move, i enter inflight menu, scroll in the menu using the aileron/elevator stick and can move but when i exit the servos are not responding, i don't have RTH or Autopilot controlling and the servos are not responding.. help ? lol

ohhh my brother just got the answer,... i am using a single wire for PPM, i need to supply 5volt with a 3 lead wire plug i think ?

Single wire is for RSSI you need a standard servo connecter for the ppm channel into the PPM1 on the RVOSD. Depending on what your using (2.4 or DL)

If your reciever does not have a "PPM channel" you will have to use the standard setting and have a wire Medusa. I'm sure others will chime this is just what I came across when setting up my plane today.


So I have it set to RTH when I turn my transmitter off and when I go out of radio range or even lower my throttle trim manually (tested with dummy cap on dragonlink). My knob I have set for fly by wire and switching through screens. I should be set to test when it's nice out.

so never realy got a clear answer for my rssi question. to hook up the rssi on my DL Rx all I need is one wire? which pin on the Rx and osd do I run this wire to?

I'll take a picture if you want.

On the DL the RSSI pin is only the 1 TOP pin. You can use a servo connector just remove the other 2 wires. Then plugs into the temp port/rssi on the RVOSD where it says + - s you want to the one wire to go into "s" or source. When you enter your RVOSD you'll see number showing when you move your DL closer and further (assuming you have the dummy plug on)

For what to here read the RSSI section

Anytime!

I have a question to pick someones brain with. While I'm flying how can I browse the menu so I can align my AHI?

edit:

If the Enable autopilot menu item is set to anything other than No-Falsafe, you can navigate and change items on the in-flight submenu by using the elevator and aileron sticks. In order to allow these actions, the servo outputs will stay at the values they had just before entering the submenu. You can’t control the plane while navigating the submenu, all controls will remain frozen until you get out of the submenu. To gain control again just cycle screens. If while you are navigating the submenu the RC link is lost, the OSD will automatically go out of the submenu to allow faster retake of control. Also if you enter the autopilot submenu with any of the autopilot modes activated, on the autopilot menu screen the autopilot will switch to level flight, and resume the previous autopilot mode after leaving the menu screen. But some menus cant be changed if any stabilization mode is active.

Love finding these new little things. NOW I'm set

Not sure about the Max V rating, but the RVOSD was rated up to 30V, so I guess something like that. I think the lower rated current sensors were more accurate in the lower current ranges, which was where most were operating, around 15-40a
I might still have one in the drawer but from memory its a little banged up
