Beta 1400 upgrades

Hi all video pilots!
Some improvements were made on my FPV Beta 1400

*PAn servo added, however no possible to get full 180 field of wiev with this basic servo.
I thinked that it will be possible to adjust on Aurora thrue E.P.A. but dont find a solution
probably some servo stretcher help me or special servo

*PAN is controled by slider on Aurora 9, Head tracking no possiblle on this radio, trying to find some solution but...

*Camera is now on a little higher position due the PAN servo, I think it is better now

*SIMPLE OSD board connected, however I made some polarity misstake in connection of one currency sensor and destroy it...
new sensor ordered, now I am monitoring just video battery

*It looks, that SIMPLE OSD works correctly,
just everytime in some random time in flight is displayed "waiting for GPS position fix" (and dont disappear), but GPS is still working, dont understand...
It is a litle annoying to have it this message in the picture, can anybody help?

*Mix of throtle to elevator helps a fly straight as arrow on high speed.
Max. speed tested 98Km/h
Max. level speed 80Km/h

*Aurora 9 with original NiMh 1300mAh battery (fully charged) with Sherrer UHF connected powered on 1Wat, instantly after powerup Aurora, it displays 60% of battery.. just tested 2W, then it goes to 37%!!!
It is why I also changed the battery in Aurora for the new Li-Po 2S 2100mAh, now it shows on 1W after power on 100%

New photos of upgraded setup below
