Redrotor v2 help


I just picked one of these up. I am also very new to building quads. What is the RSSI pad exactly for? I know how to hook up the PDB to my FC along with the XSR receiver but how does this play into the telemetry? Or am I way out in left field? Anyone could maybe give me some insight and point me in the right direction?

Sure thing and welcome to the RedRotor family! If you configure RSSI to the RROSD if your connection drops from distance/obstruction, you shutting the radio off, or any other reason, and you have a buzzer on the RROSD, it'll trigger it to alarm. Does that make sense?

Flight controllers can do similar things, so it's more of a preference as to where you want to connect it.

Having video problems similar to a lot of you. Swapped out VTXs, was running RMRC cricket now running the TBS unify HV race, powered raw from the vtx rail on the RROSD. I'm still getting the dirty Power horizontal lines in my feed when throttling. Sounds like the only answer I've seen is to replace the vtx with a Tramp. I'm thinking I'll try to power the camera from the vtx instead of the cam rail and also bypass the RROSD all together by running the signal wire directly from the vtx to the cam. Any other suggestions? The Power from the RROSD rails is definitely not good--I think it may be having an adverse affect on the signal wire inputs on the cam/vtx rails. I've never had video issues with my other builds until now with the RROSD. I was a fan of the OSDOGE back in the NAZE32 days (provided great video filtering). I'll end my rant now--it's just really frustrating!

Honestly? I'd recommend trying your motor screws. Go motor by motor and check each one.

Hey guys,

Sooo got a little issue. More like a big one! There is not OSD! I have tried multiple cameras and vtx's. Setup of the board is pretty straight forward so I'm 99% sure everything is setup right. Video is verrrry clean I will say that. I also cannot enter the menu!

Do I need to update the firmware? Is there firmware? If so where is the diagram and information on how to do this.

Thanks..

You can't upgrade the V2's firmware, so we'll need to troubleshoot it some other way. I don't suppose you could provide a picture of how you have things set up, could you?

That's too bad. I can but it's gonna be pretty obvious.
