Yeah, my guess would be a damaged/missing cap. If you can't diagnosis it, let me know and I'll send you a new board.

Hey RBeaubien I finally got around to rebuilding my alien and installing my new board that you sent me awhile ago. Im sad to report that the OSD blackout issue is now worse than ever. With every tap of the throttle OSD blacks out. With every flip or roll OSD blacks out.

It's now unflyable...........

I did not install any extra capacitors on this one as per your instructions of them not being needed.

What's the deal?

Yup I'm still having the same exact issue as TyroneFPV to a T.

Checked integrity of all soldered wiring. No missing caps. Voltages check out. Hrmmmm....

I don't really understand your issue with registering to be notified. How are you to be notified if I don't know how to contact you? Anyways, that is the only option offered by the software for notifications.
Please do! I'd like to get a couple. I broke down and registered to get the notification.

re: registration, typically an online store only required an email for notification, not a full registration with password. But your business, your rules.

Hey Robert, have you ever experimented with a structural center plate to use in place of the PDB like the Alien Center plate?

http://impulserc.com/alien-cf-center-plate-15mm

I have the Raceflight Bolt 4-in-1 ESC and it's also the PDB. I could get a much cleaner build with something like that plate. Costs too much to ship from Australia, lol.

Or do you have any defective PDB's that I could strip some of the components off to make the profile lower?

Thanks!

Look sorta like this one circled?

I don't have enough to put up for sale on the site, but $8 + $3 shipping and it's yours. 2mm Carbon Fiber. Of course you could always opt for the entire Reaktor Frame. :-) I think it's a better value than the Alien. PM me for paypal details if you want it.

Oh, I agree, I have 2 Reaktor Frames already, going to put that carbon center plate on the one I'm putting the Raceflight Bolt + Revolt since I won't need a PDB.

I think I have your paypal from a previous non-store purchase. I will PM you to confirm it.

Will these press nuts fit the Reaktor frame holes?

100 pcs for that price is pretty good, I've stripped a couple in the past, glad you put an extra one in with your frames ;-)

I have no clue if they will fit or not. I'll send you a couple of extra sets. These are the ones I use: http://www.ebay.com/itm/261485969703

Hey, I appreciate the offer. If Robert didn't have the carbon fiber center plate, I definitely would have taken you up on that offer.
I think the smooth carbon will make for a much cleaner looking build.

Thanks again.
