What happens if you get the video Rx moved further away from the DL transmitter? I've got a pretty crappy Rx, and it picks up interference from my DL if it is too close, no matter what channel it is on.

Is it an RC-305 receiver you got?

Someone told me to add a 100K resistor between the Range Video OSD and Dlink RSSI output, do you confirm this info?

Thanks.

I have the Gen4 RVOSD with the Gen5 upgrade board and a new DL 12ch Rx. I'm using the RSSI directly and it works great. No resistor required.

I'm glad you enjoyed it. If you listen carefully you can hear my wife snickering right after it hit the dirt. Weather is terrible, and I'm not sure what to change yet, so I haven't been able to try again. It's killing me!

Were you launching into the wind? It looks like your CG is off, it looks nose heavy for sure. Also how does the reflex on your elevons look?

I was launching into a very light headwind. Reflex - none - , slightly nose heavy, but not much. I will add some up elevator and pull cg back a bit and try again. What scares me is it wasn't even close to level from what I could tell.

Yup elevator and bring the CG back, you will be fine. Why not take off from the ground?
